SPECIALIST DOCTORS

Meet Our Team Of Drug Addiction Psychiatrists

Overview

There are various avenues for recovery from drug addiction for an individual. These include –

Detoxification. Through this process, medical professionals help the addict cleanse their body of drugs while helping them manage their withdrawal symptoms.
Counselling. This is crucial in helping a person overcome their drug addiction. Therapies such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, that helps focus on the person’s self-destructive thoughts and behaviours and replacing them with more constructive ones, and Motivational Interviewing – an approach that uses the person’s inspiration to change for its therapeutic aid, have both been shown to be effective therapies in treating drug addiction.
Medications. Medications play an important role in helping the person manage their withdrawal symptoms during the process of detoxification.
Support groups. 12-step programs such as Narcotics Anonymous (NA) help members in achieving and maintaining long-term sobriety and can be effective in conjunction to medications and counselling. Rehabilitation. Rehabs are structured settings with constant professional support and supervision that allows for a complete focus on recovery from addiction.
