Recovery at Cadabams

There has been a shift in the paradigm guiding mental health and rehabilitation services for patients with psychiatric illnesses. The ‘Recovery’ model has been accepted as the gold standard the world over and is followed at Cadabams.

We ensure that patients have the right support systems to help patients manage their condition in a successful manner. We ensure reintegration into society by focussing on four key dimensions that influence mental health.

The four dimensions are:

  • Health: We ensure that residents make healthy choices that aid their physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing.
  • Home: We ensure residents have a safe and stable place to live free of triggers and stressors by working with family and caregivers.
  • Purpose: We restore purpose and dignity by encouraging independence in income and by helping residents build vocational skills.
  • Community: We ensure residents are surrounded by relationships and friendships that amplify your positive mindset.

How does the Recovery approach work?

As a rehabilitation center, our primary goal is to instil the belief that you can get better and overcome the mental challenges that you face. Recovery is a personal process, and it’s a journey that involves personal growth and acceptance. It’s natural that a patient’s recovery process may witness some amount of setbacks, they are a part of life, but building resilience and powering through these setbacks is what makes recovery so important.

The recovery process at Cadabam’s Rehabilitation Center ensures support and flexibility. This means there is no standard procedure; what works for older adults may not work for the youth.
Our Recovery model involves:

  • Being responsive and respectful towards certain practices, health beliefs, linguistic requirements, and cultures.
  • Addressing diversity when treating patients
  • De-emphasizing on diagnosis and pathology
  • Re-emphasizing on the strengths and personal growth

HOW DO WE DEFINE RECOVERY?

CLINICAL RECOVERY

Defined by mental health professionals and is reduction/cessation of symptoms and restored social function.

PERSONAL RECOVERY

Refers to an ongoing holistic process of personal growth, healing and self-determination.
This includes a sense of Hope, Wellness, and Empowerment.

We at Cadabam’s follow a recovery model which includes understanding, accepting or overcoming the following:

  • The effects of mental illness
  • The trauma associated with relapse of symptoms
  • The negative attitude that can come from self, family, friends, and peers
  • Loss of role and identity in society
  • Stigma and discrimination.

PHASES OF RECOVERY:

● Overwhelmed by disability
● Struggling with a disability and rebuilding connection to the self, others, the environment, and its meaning/purpose
● Living with a disability and new connections to the patient’s self and others, along with the environment’s meaning and purpose.
● Living beyond disability: Authenticity, connectedness, and contribution.

RECOVERY SUPPORT

There are various components that make the recovery process successful, and two of the significant components of support come from family, friends, and trustworthy social networks. Family and friends become an influential chapter in a patient’s journey towards recovery. When it comes to resilience, it doesn’t just apply to the patient but to their family members as well.

They may face feelings like anxiety, guilt, shame, stress, anger, loss, grief, and fear. Family members can speak up and promote the wellbeing of the patient, as well. It’s vital that patients in rehabilitation centers gain support and love from their loved ones because it gives them a reason to get better.

The established recovery system at Cadabam’s believes that it’s important for patients to address their problems and identify their behavioural patterns. This will promote program, individual, and system-level approaches that will build mental/emotional health, manage symptoms/triggers, and reduce barriers that prevent the patient from achieving their personal goals.
