However, if the family, still desires to speak/meet with the patient, it can be facilitated.
The In-Patient treatment stay is designed to help the patient introspect and it is an opportunity to look within and begin the process of making internal changes. The patient’s illness impacts not just the patient but also extends to the family members who also suffer from emotional scarring.

Addiction is a recurring compulsion in an individual to engage in a specific activity. The term is often reserved for alcohol and drug addictions but is also applied for gambling, compulsive overeating, compulsive shopping, sex addiction and Internet addiction. Factors responsible in precipitating addictions are genetic, biological, pharmacological and social in nature. Addiction is treated like a disorder because it involves multiple behavioural issues that appear as a syndrome. Treatment focuses on not just creating abstinence but working holistically on the patient’s personality incorporating his thinking, attitudes and behaviour. The use of alcohol or drug is merely a symptom of the illness.
Nature and nurture play a role in addiction. Biological differences make someone more or less vulnerable to addiction. Addiction is due to genetic predisposition and poor coping skills.
The Twelve Step Program is based on psycho-spiritual principles that offer a way of life. They include twelve steps that aid an addict on the path of recovery and bring about a transition in life.
