Meet Our Team Of Drug Addiction Psychiatrists

Overview

A range of drugs of abuse, including cannabinoids, opioids, alcohol, and nicotine, can change the amounts of endocannabinoids in the brain. Intoxication with some types of chemicals can result in temporary psychiatric problems (e.g. psychosis with symptoms similar to schizophrenia). The responsiveness to ECT in the treatment of mood disorders may be influenced by concomitant alcohol and substance misuse. Patients with comorbid dependence and combined drug and alcohol misuse demonstrated symptom improvement based on our findings. Electricity is used in electroconvulsive treatment (ECT) to reset the pattern of neurons in the brain. It's one of several brain stimulation treatments available. ECT works by attaching electrodes to the scalp, providing an electric current to the brain, and inducing a small, controlled seizure. Cadabams bring to you the best treatment using ECT therapy for drug addiction and the psychiatric issues like depression and anxiety that come with that.

What is the most effective application of ECT?

ECT has been shown to be highly successful in the treatment of serious depression in studies.
