Know your Treatment

  • Pharmacotherapy

    The mind is a function of brain neural circuits communicating via different chemicals called neurotransmitters. If there is an imbalance in these chemical messengers, the mind does not function properly. Medications simply help to bring back the balance of neurochemicals in the brain to normal levels.
  • CBT( Cognitive Behavioral Therapy)

    Thoughts and beliefs mediate changes in behavior. Patients are capable of controlling their own thoughts and actions. Therapy is aimed at helping the patient acquire skills and knowledge that will enable him/her to function more adaptively. The therapist and patient assume an equal share of the responsibility for solving the patient's problems across all therapeutic activity.
  • ERP (Exposure and Response Prevention)

    Exposure techniques are used to treat fear, anxiety, or other intense negative emotional reactions. The therapist encourages the patient to confront situations that give rise to negative emotion. Typically, the patient will actively avoid and escape situations that signal them. Exposure to these feared or avoided situations allows the patient to realize that the feared situation is actually safer than he previously thought.
  • MET (Motivational Enhancement Therapy)

    4 sessions completed in 90 days. First session assesses the problem behavior associated with addiction and the patient’s motivation to quit. Session 2 planned 2 weeks later builds the motivation to change. The last 2 sessions at Week 6 and Week 12 reinforce the motivation levels and discuss strategies for relapse prevention.
