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.

Symptoms of schizophrenia

Symptoms may include –

  • Hallucinations. This involves perceiving things that are not actually there.
  • Delusions. This involves having false beliefs that are not based in reality.
  • Disorganized thinking. This reflects in the person’s speech, which can sound meaningless or can comprise irrelevant or incomplete responses.
  • Extremely disorganized behavior. Examples of this include childlike silliness, inappropriate posture, useless and excessive movement, etc.
  • Negative symptoms. This involves showing a lack of emotion or change in expressions, neglecting hygiene, not making eye contact, withdrawing socially, or inability to experience pleasure.

Types of schizophrenia

  • Paranoid type. This is the most common type. The symptoms include extreme paranoia, inappropriate emotional responses, odd behaviors, as well as showing little pleasure in life.
  • Catatonic type. This is the rarest type. In this, the person shuts down emotionally, physically, and mentally. They may stand for long durations and have no facial expression. It becomes a medical emergency when it lasts for hours.
  • Disorganized type. The symptoms include disorganized behaviors, thoughts, and speech patterns, making it difficult for others to understand the person. They may not have delusions or hallucinations, but show a lack of emotions via their facial expressions, mannerisms, or voice tone.
  • Undifferentiated type. This type has some symptoms of different types such as disorganized, catatonic, or paranoid, but doesn’t fit in with any one type.
  • Residual type. This includes having negative symptoms (lack of concentration, poor hygiene, slow movement, poor memory) and having a history of psychotic symptoms.

Causes for schizophrenia

The exact cause is not known, but it is believed that genetics, brain chemistry, and environmental factors play a role in schizophrenia.

Treatment for schizophrenia

Medications, individual psychotherapy, and family therapy are common treatment options for schizophrenia. Neurofeedback training and Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) are also other treatment options. For constant support and supervision, rehabilitation could also be considered.

If you or your loved one is suffering from schizophrenia, help is available. Cadabam’s is the best hospital for schizophrenia treatment. We also have schizophrenia rehabilitation centers in Bangalore. Reach out to us on our helpline number 9741476476.

FAQs

How do medications help in the treatment?

Medications can help relieve symptoms such as delusions, hallucinations, and disorganized thinking.

Why is psychotherapy required in the treatment process?

Psychotherapy helps the patient learn to deal with their negative thoughts and maladaptive behaviors, learn more about their illness and its effects, distinguish what is real from unreal, and manage everyday life.

Is schizophrenia curable?

No, schizophrenia is a lifelong condition that cannot be cured, but its symptoms can be managed.

What if the patient is unwilling to come to the hospital?

Cadabams also conducts home visits with medical and mental health professionals to help examine the patient and bring them to the hospital, if treatment is required. We also offer home services in which our professionals visit your loved one for regular appointments.
