Rehab at Cadabams

Mental illnesses are often devastating and debilitating to the patient. They destroy their capacity to lead a normal family and social life. Seeking help at the right time is crucial to managing illnesses and preventing irreversible damage to self and relationships.

While the illness affects the individual, the families who are the chief caregivers suffer equally. They tend to lack  the right skills to handle critical situations and have inadequate knowledge of the nature of the illness.

In such a scenario, what is needed is not just medical intervention but holistic therapeutic approaches to reintegrate them into society. They need psychiatric treatment that is scientifically planned and tailored, organised counselling, and rehabilitation program aimed at recovery and reintegration.

Cadabam’s psychiatric rehabilitation is an individualised and collaborative process that takes effect with long term/continuous support and care. The treatment goals that are offered by our team are designed in a way that you receive the best chances to grow, learn, heal, and change.

FACTORS THAT AFFECT PSYCHIATRIC TREATMENT

If you or your loved one is suffering from a mental health issue that is not addressed, then it can be difficult to start treatment. This is because there may be a fair share of resistance as their judgment may be impaired. If a patient is still in denial about their condition then not only are they resistant to any treatment, but they can be aggressive; this is especially true for patients who suffer from anxiety and depression, often leading to high risks that lead to suicidal tendencies.

A patient who accepts that they need rehabilitation and is willing to gain from the treatment plans will have a unique profile. There are some factors that professionals will pay attention to when it comes to treating addiction, substance abuse, and mental illnesses:

  • The type and severity of the mental health issue
  • Duration of the illness
  • Finding out if the illness is occasional or regular, and if it has a trigger of some sort
  • If the patient is using any drugs or if they have any alcohol problem
  • Whether the patient has accepted their diagnosis and are willing to go into rehab for effective recovery
