People who are addicted to drugs suffer from other health, occupational, legal, familial, and social problems that should be addressed concurrently. The best programs provide a combination of therapies and other services to meet an individual patient’s needs. Psychoactive medications such as anti depressants, anti anxiety agents, mood stabilizers, and antipsychotic medications may be critical for treatment success when patients have co-occurring mental disorders such as depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, or schizophrenia. In addition, most people with severe addiction abuse multiple drugs and require treatment for all substances used.
The drug addiction treatment at Cadabam’s Hospitals is intended to help addicted individuals stop compulsive drug seeking and use. The treatments can occur in a variety of settings, take many different forms, and last for different lengths of time because drug addiction is typically a chronic disorder and a one-time treatment is usually not sufficient. For many treatment is a long-term process that involves multiple interventions from psychiatrists and psychologists with regular monitoring and follow-up sessions.
The drug addiction treatment at Cadabam’s Hospitals includes medication, behavioural therapies, or a combination of both. Our treatment programs employ both individual and group therapies. We work on different aspects of addiction, combination of behavioural therapies and medications are more effective than either approach used alone.

Overcoming an addiction to alcohol can be a long and bumpy road. If you are willing to get the support you need and ready to stop drinking you can recover from alcoholism no matter how bad the addiction is or how powerless you feel. Most people with alcohol problems do not decide to make a big change out of the blue or transform their drinking habits overnight. However, once you have made the decision to change, the next step is to seek help as some people can stop drinking on their own while others need medical supervision in order to withdraw from alcohol safely and comfortably.
There’s no magic bullet or single treatment that works for everyone. Everyone’s needs are different, so it’s important that you find a program that is right for you. Alcohol addiction treatment program should be customized to your unique problems and situation.
