24 X 7 Helpline For Mental Health Emergencies

Process at Cadabams

Cadabam’s psychosocial rehabilitation center employs cutting edge treatments and processes in the treatment of patients. We are always evolving to meet the changes and innovation happening in the field of Psychiatry.

Our treatments take place in different settings, and through different modalities. We engage a multidisciplinary team of counsellors, psychiatrists, psychologists, mental health aides, and support professionals over the course of treatment.

There are a variety of psychiatric illnesses, and they can differ for each person, even if patients have the same diagnosis the intensity of the disease can be different; for instance, if two patients are diagnosed with Bipolar disorder, one patient will have severe episodes and different triggers as compared to the other.

Hence, we don’t employ a standard ‘one size fits all’ approach to treating behavioural health and substance abuse issues. The treatment plans are custom-tailored based on each patient and their diagnosis and case history.

Types of Treatment approaches we use:

PSYCHO PHARMACOLOGICAL MANAGEMENT:

We provide the right kind of medication and monitor the patient constantly to ensure the best long term results. The patients receive constant medical care and supervision and this controlled environment ensures that the patient receives adequate support to ensure adherence. This approach is combined with a variety of therapeutic and counselling approaches for best results.

Counselling:

Counselling is used to treat a wide range of mental health problems. This treatment is used in inpatient and outpatient sessions. During counselling, an individual or group will discuss their problems with a therapist who will help them process their emotions and teach them the right coping skills.

Our team of counsellors who are all highly qualified, trained and certified to ensure that patients receive the best care. The counselling sessions happen at regular intervals and they meet the patient on a daily basis in their term here. The counsellor is the single point of contact for the family on progress, updates, interventions and to coordinate visits.

Family intervention & therapy:

Family therapy is a type of psychotherapy, and this is where family members will meet with the patient’s therapist and try to resolve the issues as a unit. It’s usually conducted by a family therapist or a licensed marriage therapist. Individual therapy is where a person has one-on-one sessions with the therapist, where they talk about the patient’s issues, emotions, traumas, and triggers.

We believe in the efficacy of family interventions and involvement at regular intervals. They  are a very important part of our psychosocial rehabilitation process. Family is the primary caretaker and part of the rehabilitation program is equipping them with the tools and skills to help manage the patient’s illness and develop understanding and empathy.

Family therapy helps in:

  • Resolution or at least understanding the area of conflict between the resident(person with mental illness) and family
  • Better understanding of the problem and treatment measures and its outcomes
  • Help and identify an area of communication creating conflict or problem and improve communication patterns in the family
  • Help enhance problem-solving, coping skills and strategies

COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY:

This is one of the most common therapy plans for patients who are enlisted in a residential rehab center. It can be used on all levels, including individual, group, and family therapy. CBT therapists specialize in helping their clients address any negative, aggressive, or harmful thoughts and help them replace it with self-assuring thoughts and a constructive attitude.

INTERPERSONAL THERAPY:

This type of therapy helps patients address the problems within their relationships, and it teaches them how to communicate and build a new interpersonal relationship. This form of therapy is usually used in couples counselling or with patients who are dealing with depression and are finding it difficult to relate to their loved ones.

GROUP THERAPY:

Group therapy is mostly focused on certain topics that everyone in the group can relate too. For instance, a therapist may lead a group that is for people who are suffering from depression, anxiety, anger management, or grief.

Other forms of psychological therapy are:

  • Supportive therapy
  • Cognitive rehabilitation
  • Bibliotherapy
  • Cinema/Reel therapy
  • Drama Therapy
  • Morita Therapy
  • Art and Music Therapy

Social therapy:

Yoga – Yoga focuses on syncing the mind and body through a series of movements and breathing exercises. It helps stabilize mood and build concentration.

Meditation – Meditation is useful because it can help relieve stress, depression, and anxiety.

Exercise – This is a very important component of mental health treatments. Patients who suffer from psychiatric issues should attempt some sort of workout plan, at least for thirty minutes every day, to decrease stress.

Other forms of Social therapy are

  • Vocational and occupational rehabilitation
  • Supported Education
  • Supported Living
  • Supported Employment
