    Couples Therapy

    Couples therapy is an approach wherein the patients and their partners are engaged together as a part of the treatment process. When a person becomes a victim of substance abuse, it affects the patient and the people around him, particularly his partner. Their relationship can become strained due to lack of communication, financial issues, loss of trust, lack of intimacy, and physical abuse in more severe cases.

    Couples therapy addresses these issues and tries to rebuild the trust between the partners. The partner’s involvement in the process will result in greater chances of treatment success and sustained recovery.

Trauma therapy refers to treatment wherein specialist therapists help the patients to resolve the trauma that led the patients to substance abuse. The trauma could be physical abuse, sexual abuse, war, natural disasters, divorce, accident, loss of a loved one, etc. Thinking of these traumatic events causes emotional disturbances like anxiety, depression and results in addiction.
