Our Behavioral and Addiction Services

Encompass a holistic approach to mental health care, acknowledging the intricate connection between behavior patterns and addiction issues. Tailored to your unique needs, our services strive to create a supportive environment where individuals can embark on a transformative journey towards mental well-being.

1. Alcohol Use Disorder:

Our Addiction Disorder services provide comprehensive support for individuals grappling with Substance Use and Alcohol Use Disorder. Alcohol use becomes a problem when there is loss of control in drinking, the person has a compulsive urge to drink and when the person persists in drinking despite adverse consequences like problems in marriage and work. It is possible to use kindness, positive reinforcement, and motivational and behavioural strategies to help our loved ones overcome addiction problems and compulsive behaviours. Recent research has shown addiction is a brain disease and the good news is that effective treatments are available.

2. Quitting Cigarettes:

Breaking free from cigarette addiction is a crucial step towards mental and physical well-being. Our Quitting Cigarettes program offers personalized strategies and support to help individuals overcome nicotine dependence, promoting a healthier lifestyle and improved mental resilience.

Many individuals become motivated to quit cigarettes after they are diagnosed with various health problems like cancer, heart diseases and stroke. Help is available and it is never too late to say goodbye to cigarettes. There is a whole spectrum of techniques that may have worked for other quitters and guidance is provided as individuals build their own personalised plan.

3. Transgender Problems

The term “transgender” refers to a person whose sex assigned at birth (i.e. the sex assigned at birth, usually based on external genitalia) does not align their gender identity (i.e., one’s psychological sense of their gender). Some people who are transgender will experience “gender dysphoria,” which refers to psychological distress that results from an incongruence between one’s sex assigned at birth and one’s gender identity. Though gender dysphoria often begins in childhood, some people may not experience it until after puberty or much later.
