Counseling and Support
A dementia diagnosis is stressful. If your loved one needs help coming to terms with it, Then you should have to connect yourself with a best rehab centre ,This might include an individual or family therapist, social worker, psychologist, or psychiatrist.
At your loved one’s first visit with a counselor, they’ll talk about their symptoms (emotional, mental, and physical) and why they want counseling. You might take a survey with these questions. Your answers will give the counselor a better idea of the best ways to help.
Rehabilitation counselling :
It is focused on helping people who have Disabilities to achieve their personal, career, and independent living goals through a counseling process.
Rehabilitation Counselors can be found in private practice, in rehabilitation facilities, hospitals, universities, schools, government agencies, insurance companies and other organizations where people are being treated for congenital or acquired disabilities. Over time, with the changes in social work being more psychotherapy-oriented, rehabilitation counselors take on more and more community engagement work, especially as it relates to special populations.
Yoga and Meditation :
India is a very spiritual country and many de-addiction centres have spiritual aspects to their treatment. Yoga therapy and meditation are popular spiritual additions to addiction recovery programmes throughout the country. Many of the centres that use yoga and meditation techniques use other spiritual recovery methods, while some do not. Read our blog post on Yoga Therapy.

Therapeutic Community Program
Careful exploration of difficult life experiences – the work of everyone at Riggs – is most rewarding when patients also share their strengths with each other and with the staff in a serious partnership of mutual problem solving and social learning. Everyone—patients and staff alike—has something to offer and something to gain by participating. The Therapeutic Community Program includes an interconnected series of groups aimed at enhancing patient authority, fostering interpersonal learning, and creating an environment that supports treatment. We engage in a process of “examined living,” characterized by learning through public reflection (by staff and patients) on the meaning of behaviours, choices, and interactions.
In the Therapeutic Community Program, patients can experiment with new ways of being in relationship using some of the insights that arise in psychotherapy. There are nearly 50 group meetings held each week, some open to all, some within the different residential programs, and some designed to address specific difficulties. These groups offer many opportunities to deepen understanding of how different ways of communicating affect the quality of relationships. Staff members offer consultation to small groups that focus on interpersonal learning and group dynamics. Other groups support sobriety or teach coping skills.
There are art shows, reading groups, open mic nights, basketball games, and many other activities. Each patient chooses to participate in different groups and activities. The focus of many of the group offerings are negotiated in an ongoing way with the patients, helping to ensure that the offerings are relevant to current patients’ needs and interests. If there is a group that doesn’t yet exist, patients can join together to create it. It is a rare person who cannot find a place where they have something to learn and something to contribute in this community. Through this process of group interaction, a great deal of personal, social, ethical, and organizational learning can take place.
