MADRID, June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Once again, TAVAD's advanced alcohol withdrawal treatment programme continues to achieve the country's highest retention rates in the addictions field. Thanks to the cutting-edge pharmacology used by this detox center, 100% of patients who underwent treatment for their alcohol addiction in 2016 completed the detoxification course, and 84% show positive progress one year after discharge.
The intensive pharmacological and psychotherapeutic intervention conducted during a 48-hour hospital stay facilitates and enhances the neuroregulation of brain structures that have been altered by alcohol consumption. The aim is to restore the balance of emotional and thought-related functions, so that the patient does not suffer withdrawal symptoms, cravings, hostility and depression, key factors for the successful completion of the detoxification process.
The treatment administered to patients with alcohol-related problems also includes one year of medical, psychological and pharmacological support in the patient's and their family's regular environment.
As TAVAD's pharmacological treatment has evolved and improved, care duration, both for inpatient and outpatient care has been falling. A groundbreaking trend based on short stays, thanks to the use of the most advanced pharmacology, and excellent hospitals and professionals.
"The pharmacological developments over recent years not only allow for shorter treatment times, but also better short and long-term results. Both retention and clinical parameters improve very significantly, which also indicates a substantial improvement in the patient's quality of life," says Dr. Juan José Legarda, Director of this Spanish Center, which has sites in Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona.
In addition, the treatment for giving up alcohol use encompasses specific programmes in nutrition, mindfulness and personal training. These bolster the recovery of patient well-being in all areas, such as family, social and work.
