Adult Psychiatry

Adult psychiatry deals with the diagnosis, assessment and treatment of mental illness in people aged above 18 years.

Imagine a man washing his hands repeatedly every 10 minutes and if stopped gets violent. This could be Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Another could be happy for two months and then become sad for a week before going into depression. This could be Bi-polar Affective Disorder. It is these kind of illnesses that are treated under Adult Psychiatry. Other illnesses could be schizophrenia and attention deficit disorder, where people can't concentrate on one thing for long.

Under adult psychiatry, our doctors first perform an assessment of the individual through questionnaires and tests such as ink blot tests, combine it with physical tests such as imaging of the brain and even blood tests to determine the severity of the illness. Neuropsychiatry is also used in some cases. This diagnosis helps our doctors to determine the medicines to be administered and if the patient has to be treated as an in-patient or an outpatient.

Clinical psychologists are requested to intervene to help in areas such as cognitive behavior therapy and neuro-therapy among others. Family counseling and therapy is also provided to help develop a good support system for the patient.

The facility, the process and the team combine to provide the best possible care and ensure that the illness is controlled.

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.
