Recommended Treatment Approaches/Modalities:

1. Multidisciplinary Team Approach is a method in the treatment and
rehabilitation of drug dependents which avails of the services and skills of a team
composed of psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker, occupational therapist and
other related disciplines in collaboration with the family and the drug dependent.
2. Therapeutic Community Approach views addiction as a symptomatic
manifestation of a more complex psychological problem rooted in an interplay of
emotional, social, physical and spiritual values. It is a highly structured program
wherein the community is utilized as the primary vehicle to foster behavioural
and attitudinal change. The patient receives the information and the impetus to
change from being a part of the community. Role modelling and peer pressure
play significant parts in the program.
The goal of every therapeutic community is to change the patients selfdestructive thinking and behavioural pattern, teach them personal responsibility,
positivize their self-image, create a sense of human community and provide an
environment in which human beings can grow and take responsibility and credit
for the growth.
3. Hazelden-Minnesotta Model views addiction as a disease, an involuntary
condition caused by factors largely outside a persons control. The program
consists of didactic lectures, cognitive-behavioural psychology, Alcoholic
Anonymous principles / Twelve Steps Principles and biblio-theraphy. It aims to
treat patients with chemical dependency, endorsing a set of values and beliefs
about the powerlessness of people over drug taking and turning to a Higher
Power to help them combat the disease. In this modality, counsellors and
patients collaborate in defining the path to recovery.
