Hello and thank you for using Justanswer, That is great that you are looking for novel way to treat problematic addiction and mood disorders, but the unfortunate part involving the virtual reality system/methodology is that this is still being researched and is not available for mass market at this time. You can try to reach out to the authors of this article (I have emailed many authors of articles before and found them to be very responsive) to see if your clinic may part of a larger study involving virtual reality, but unfortunately at this time you will not be able to find a mass market system to purchase for therapeutic use.
