2. You will hear part of a radio talk about an Institution that helps addicts. For questions 9-18, complete the sentences with a word or short phrase. I = Introducer J = Jane


I: Why do perfectly sane, normal people pay up to a thousand pounds a week to make themselves sick? Jane Seaworthy has been finding out. 

J: Well, actually, the people attending the Thorndale clinic, situated on the outskirts of Bristol, all have a problem and it's a problem that has

become common in the last two decades - that of addiction. There are over fifty 'addiction clinics' operating in the United

Kingdom but what makes Thorndale so special is a new kind of treatment that they have been with remarkable success. The new

system being used here is called 'Aversion Therapy', although the idea itself is not new. And of all the clinics treating of various kinds

worldwide, the Thorndale clinic has the highest success rate in treating abusers of alcohol and tobacco. Addicts attending a 10-day course

of treatment live, eat and sleep in the same building and, unlike other systems, are encouraged to in their addiction instead of treating

subjects with drugs that reduce their dependence, this course sets out to induce in its patients a strong feeling of directed towards

the object of their addiction. For example, a one-hour treatment session for smokers involves smoking rapidly without stopping well

beyond the point where they want no more. 

In fact, they are not allowed to stop smoking until they have been physically sick. As you can imagine, this is not a pleasant process. It

has to be repeated three times a day for the entire ten-day period in order that the subjects develop a strong enough hatred for their earlier

addiction. Unfortunately, many people find the course too painful to complete, and those who do give up early are not considered

cured, as they will most likely return to their former habit. On the other hand, smokers who keep going to the end of the course are

most unlikely to want a cigarette again. The treatment for alcoholism has to be somewhat different, mainly because alcohol abuse involves

loss of memory. This problem is overcome in a simple way. A group of 'patients' are encouraged to drink excessively in the setting of a bar.

During this stage they are carefully monitored by trained personnel. Their behaviour is also recorded on video cassette and the following

day they are shown their 'drunken performance' from the night before. Nearly all subjects feel great embarrassment when faced with these

forgotten scenes of uncontrolled drunkenness. Usually, a ten-day course of treatment is all that is required to shift a patient's emotional

attitude to drinking.
