In this paper, a PACT (people, activities, contexts, and technologies) analysis for alcohol use disorder (AUD) therapy in virtual reality (VR) is provided. Based on this analysis, a gamified VR-based AUD therapy application is developed which consists of three mini-games and employs Approach Avoidance Training (AAT) and Cue-exposure Therapy (CET) methods in the context of a virtual supermarket. This application and its evaluation by clinical experts and AUD patients during two focus groups will be presented as well.
