Use and misuse of addictive substances has been an ongoing phenomenon from early civilizations to the present. Experimental observations endorse the implication of a cognitive component during the addictive course. The present investigation proposes a learning mechanism affecting the cognitive level of a multiscale model of addiction. Simulations account for plausible initiations of natural recoveries through non-traditional techniques, such as meditation. This framework suggests that such plasticity mechanism within the cognitive substrate of an addict may be necessary in order for a maturing out experience to begin and possibly endure over time.
