Autism is not a disease but deviation in development. No medicine can cure autism. But how to nurture a child with autism can be taught by Child psychologist & psychiatrist.

Are there any de-addiction centers in Pune that treat a patient at a nominal cost? It's for smoking and drinking. Also, do you suggest consulting a good psychiatrist or approaching a rehab directly?

There are No 'Tricks' to cure depression. Depression is a brain illness & you need to take medicines to help yourself But, for starters, Stop smoking weed as its known to cause neurotransmitter imbalance & worsen any mental illness. You can also do 30 minutes daily Zumba to promote endorphin release in brain to help you feel better.

You should stick to recita forte only & ask your doctor to make appropriate dosage adjustment to help you get better. Recita forte contains Escitalopram + Clonazepam combination of which, Escitalopram is a very good antidepressant. You can get better on plain escitalopram alone with some dosage adjustment. No need of any other supplements.

De-Addiction - How It Can Be Achieved?

De-Addiction - How It Can Be Achieved?

Addiction is the absolute dependency on a particular substance or situation. Substance addiction includes a variety of substances apart from alcohol and drugs. Examples include porn, food, chocolate, nicotine, etc. Situation addiction includes gambling, shopping and sex among others. The problem in our society with addiction is it is treated like a choice than as a major problem faced by an individual. De-addiction is the process of ridding the individual of his dependence on certain substances or activities.

Process

  1. Rehabilitation psychology studies the process of de-addiction and helps addicts blend with the normal lifestyle. Rehab centers offer several forms of therapy to reduce substance usage.
  2. Group therapy is always the go to form of therapeutic technique to deal with cases of addiction owing to the common feeling among users that people who aren’t addicted and do not know what they’re going through. In those cases, it is rather important to have support from a group of people who are exactly where they are.
  3. Family therapy is also essential to make the individual know how their loved ones feel and also remind them of the unconditional support. Some rehab centers also use the horse therapy (focuses on interaction with horses which facilitates emotional and occupational development in patients) which is rather interesting to witness.
  4. In addition to therapy, rehab centers teach life skills and cooperation. Apart from all this, drugs are also prescribed to deal with addiction along with the weekly scheduled personal therapy sessions.

Although an unfamiliar concept in India, halfway homes are the next step after the rehab. The individuals learn different skills and ways to manage themselves outside the house while still continuing their therapy. This is done to make sure one doesn’t relapse right after the rehabilitation has been completed. Most rehabs also suggest support group meetings. Even otherwise support groups are extremely effective in the de-addiction process. ‘Alcoholics Anonymous’ and ‘Narcotics Anonymous’ are two of the most widely managed support groups around the world.

Addiction is an immense issue which has spiraled out of control in today’s times. However, it is necessary to understand it isn’t the question of the individual’s morality. The removal of labels and stigma is essential in the entire process. Support from loved ones is an extremely important step towards de-addiction, right after the acceptance that one is addicted. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

डिप्रेशन/नैराश्य एक सायलेंट किलर (मराठी)

डिप्रेशन किंवा नैराश्य हा एक गंभीर मानसिक आजार आहे। भारतात दर 4 मागे 1 व्यक्ती या आजाराच्या लक्षणांनी पिडित आहे (संदर्भ: who संकेतस्थळ) 
डिप्रेशन नी पीडित व्यक्ती बहुतांश वेळा चिडचिडेपणा, झोपेच्या समस्या, थकवा, विसारभोळेपणा, सतत राहणाऱ्या पाचन समस्या इत्यादींनी ग्रस्त होते। त्यामुळे अशा व्यक्तीचा प्रथम संपर्क हा फॅमिली डॉक्टर, जनरल फिजिशियन डॉक्टर यांच्याशी होतो। 
जर आपल्याला डिप्रेशन विकाराची वरील पैकी कोणतीही लक्षणे जाणवत असतील किंवा वारंवार डॉक्टर कडे जाऊन, वेगवेगळ्या तपासण्या करून सुद्धा समाधानकारक रोगनिदान होत नसेल, तर आपल्या डॉक्टर ला जरूर हे विचारा'मला मानसोपचार तज्ञा कडे जायची गरज आहे का? तुम्ही मला मानसिक आरोग्य समस्येची औषधे स्वतः देत आहात का' 
जागृती ही रोगमुक्त होण्याची पहिली पायरी आहे! 
तुमचा हक्क, तुमचा मानसोपचार तज्ञ!

Red wine in quantities Not exceeding 30 ml per day can be beneficial for heart. But due to its high addiction potential, walking 2-3 km daily, eating a calories restricted diet is found to be as good as & cheaper, addiction free, safer option to red wine.

Hello! I’m suffering with depression For more than 7 years now I breakdown at very unusual time like while cooking or taking shower or ironing clothes I don’t know why I cry so intensely but a slightest thought of anyone who has hurt me is enough to make me cry like that. I was not like this few years back, I was very happy person and no matter what happens I never cried I have dealt with lots of ups and downs in career and personal life but nothing made me so lifeless and unhappy but these days without any reason or occasion I feel very sad, suffocated and tired. I have difficulties getting up from bed every morning I need any strong reason to get up or else I do not. I don’t feel like working I resigned from work and I just like to sleep and just anything and everyday Makes me cry. I don’t like it and I did’t know what to do so I visited a psychologist she asked me to write on paper everything that has hurt me in life right from the first memory of childhood, she asked me to write every single detail about those events and then asked me to burn those papers she assured me it will work, I was very happy to know it will work but I never did what she asked me to do as it scares me like anything, just a thought of people makes me cry. Even those who scolded me. If I go through all those details I will die crying. In 20 days I tried to sit down and write so many times but I gave up so then I decided to meet a psychiatrist when he met me he said there is nothing wrong with me and I’m absolutely normal according to him he says all these things are normal he just prescribed me Depran L tablet for 15 days once a day before bed, he said it will help me sleep and it’s an anti depressant. He said you don’t need any therapy just have this tablet, now I’m really confused and bit concerned about me. I read side effects of depran l and they are scary and at the same time I do not think sleeping alone can help me. I have been sleeping forever already for days I haven’t got out of bed and slept for more than 14 hours. I don’t know what to do and whom to consult in my condition. Please if there is anything who can guide me to a right things or exercises or doctors I’ll be really grateful and also let me know if I it’s really ok to take Depran L. thank you.

Hello & thank you for your candid confession! yes, it appears from your description that you are indeed suffering from a mental health problem (may or may not be depression) The way suggested by your psychologist is indeed a good start & you should do it immediately. I'll suggest a little modification in it. Instead of looking at entire bigger picture in one go, try & break things into small pieces like write about what is hurting/troubling you for last 1 month & how you have managed to overcome it. Then just tear up the page with negative things & keep the page with how you managed to overcome the odds with you as a victory trophy over depression Regarding Depran-L, your current problem severity is probably Not going to be cured by a small dose of antidepressant, so if you can contact me (here or at clinic) we can decide on what medicine will suit you the best. Regards & all the best.
