What Our Clients Have To Say

I have been consulting the doctors at Cadabam’s for over 6 months now for my father who has dementia. The doctors and staff at the hospital are very polite and kind and have provided excellent support and care right from day one. They not only explain the treatment plan thoroughly but also take out the time to make sure we understand complications and side effects that could come along the way. If you or your loved one is dealing with any mental health issues, I highly recommend Cadabam’s.

I’m very happy with the doctors, medical staff, and facilities at Cadabam’s hospital. Apart from being highly skilled in the field, the doctors and other medical staff are also very patient and supportive. Right from diagnosing the issue to prescribing medicines and creating the perfect treatment plan, they are with you every step of the way. I am glad I reached out to the team at Cadabam’s for counseling sessions.

I have observed great improvements in my son who has autism. The treatment plan created by the doctors has helped reduce the symptoms and he now is slowly learning new skills that assist him in his day-to-day activities. I cannot thank the team at Cadabam’s enough for giving my son the opportunity to have a happy and healthy childhood.

Excellent doctors, excellent team of medical staff, excellent facilities. From the people to the facilities and infrastructure, Cadabam’s has everything you need to address and improve your mental health illnesses.

I’m extremely grateful to the doctors and the entire team at Cadabams for creating an action plan to help me with my anxiety. I was finding it very difficult to maintain a social life and even focus on my career because of my severe anxiety. But now that I have been meeting with the team for over a year, I can proudly say that I have gotten much better at understanding and dealing with my anxiety. Thank you Cadabam’s!

My wife and I were not able to maintain a healthy relationship due to a lot of personal issues. Just when we thought our marriage would be over, we decided to seek couple’s counseling at Cadabam’s. The team of therapists and psychologists helped us build back our relationship and taught us how to communicate better and reduce conflicts in our day to day life.

I used to run around to consult different professionals for cmy son’s treatment. At Cadabam’s, it was so much more convenient. From psychiatrists to rehabilitation, they had it all. I am really happy with how they have helped my son and I can see immense changes in him.

What really struck me was how polite and understanding the professionals were. We availed home care services from Cadabams and the professional was so understanding. They took their time, spoke to all the members, and gave us an in-depth understanding of the illness. We have now started coming in for regular sessions. It’s worth it!

It was the first time we had faced something like this. Our daughter was going through immense strain and wasn’t responding to anything we said. That was when we contacted Cadabams, and we were surprised by how prompt they were with treatment. They treated our situation as an emergency and took immense care of our daughter.

What is personality disorder?

Everyone has problems getting along with other people sometimes. Personality disorder is a term for several behaviour patterns that make it consistently difficult for people to get along with others regardless of the circumstances. People with personality disorders commonly blame other people or circumstances for problems they have created. This leads to a sense of loneliness or isolation.

At Cadabams Hospital, we take care of individuals with personality disorders by carefully diagnosing the array of this condition. Every individual is advised a unique and customized treatment plan through one on one counseling and clinically-verified psychotherapy and medication management that help in careful and gradual recovery.

People with personality disorders have a different sense of existence, making it substantially difficult to treat this condition. They are change-resistant as these personality traits are quite deep-rooted. Superficial treatment methods do not work for all individuals with this condition.

Acceptance is a key aspect clubbed with lifestyle counseling that helps these individuals on a regular basis. At Cadabams, we focus on solution-oriented treatment plans that offer post-treatment care for both the individuals and their loved ones to ensure long-term recovery.

Often, a mixed approach is needed to make sure that all psychiatric, medical and social needs of the patient are met. Because personality disorders are long-standing, treatment often requires months or even years.

psychologist/therapist, psychiatric nurse, and a social worker. Different forms of psychotherapy, medications, and/or hospital and residential programs are often used in combination to provide a holistic treatment to those living with personality disorders.
