There is wisdom in knowing you can’t face addiction ALONE. Through treatment, one can experience the powerful strength of support and learn the coping skills and strategies to stay clean and sober for a lifetime.
There is huge misconception that addiction is a disorder unto itself and that with just detoxification, unassessed medication (antipsychotic, mood stabilizer, antidepressant, benzodiazepine) the client will somehow magically give up the use of alcohol and drugs altogether. This is known as the Medical model, practiced widely in Pakistan.
The actual origins of addiction lie deep in the human condition arising from childhood wounding (emotional, physical and sexual abuse) and an underlying comorbidity such as Personality, Psychotic or Mood disorder. Without accessing the underlying reasons for addiction, no treatment is possible.
A person suffering from addiction is not only abusing substances (drugs and alcohol) but is also addicted in his relationships, activities, feelings and thoughts all of which are obsessive compulsive.
Therapy Works In-Client’s Trip to Deosai Plains and Noori Waterfall
This necessitates mandatory Biopsychosocial assessment by three mental health practitioners at Therapy Works
- Psychiatrist – (Mental Health Examination)
- Psychologist – (MMPI, Psychosis and other scales)
- Psychotherapist – (Assessment from integrative psychotherapy)
The three mental health practitioners then meet to share their assessments and make a treatment/healing plan for 90 to 120 days in-client and 6 months as Out-client.
This treatment plan is made to bring the client back to full functionality holistically (mind, body and spirit). This is done through a robust treatment program spanning 90 to 120 days. The daily program is full of meaningful activities that make a client look at his life (powerlessness over drugs and unmanageability in life) and agree to wholesale changes in his life starting with abstinence and moving on to life goals, such as completing education, sustaining a job and maintaining meaningful relationships.
