Medications are given to manage the craving or desire to consume Tobacco.

Quitting the addictive substance is the first step and the crucial beginning of a long battle against craving and relapse. Counseling is an essential part of treatment for all patients of addiction. Drug refusal skills, craving management, anger management, and problem solving skills are various skills to be imparted to the patient in counseling and help those recovering from addiction stay clean. Psychotherapy can also be used to treat the other mental health conditions that often contribute to addiction.

Why counseling is important in Addiction Treatment?

Addiction is more than a physical dependence on drugs, alcohol and tobacco. Even after detox, when physical dependence is cured, patients are at high risk for relapse. Psychological and social factors are often powerful stimuli for relapse, which include :

  • Stress, especially sudden life stresses
  • Cues in the environment, like visiting a neighborhood where the substance is easily available
  • Social networks, like spending time with friends who continue to use drugs, alcohol and tobacco

These factors can create ongoing, nearly irresistible urges to use various substances of abuse. Counseling helps addicts escape craving and learn to cope with life, without falling prey to addiction. Several counseling therapies are available for prescription drug abuse, and no method is known to be the best. Likewise, no one approach is appropriate for everyone with addiction. Behavior therapy plays a major important role in management of nicotine addiction. At UMANG CLINIC, a personalized counseling & treatment plan will be designed to cater to each individual’s addiction problem. As addiction is an illness that affects the family as a whole, in addition to the above mentioned services, UMANG CLINIC also offers one of a kind therapy services to the family members of patients suffering from addiction.

Effectiveness & Importance Of Treatment

Treatment enables people to counteract addiction's powerful disruptive effects on the brain and behavior and to regain control of their lives. In addition to stopping regular substance use, the goal of treatment is to return people to productive functioning in the family, workplace, and community.

Nearly all patients suffering from addiction problem believe at the outset that they can stop using drugs on their own, some succeed but unfortunately most relapse. The psychological and physiological dependence which the patient is habituated to requires professional treatment and guidance which increases their chances of being successful and achieve long-term abstinence.
