Treatment Options

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): A systematic and intentional type of therapy that seeks to assist a person in eliminating undesirable ideas and conduct within a given framework. CBT aims at identifying the individual’s learning history to develop strategies for interfering with excessive impulses and diminishing the force and occurrence of the impulses.

Impulse Control Disorder Treatment Options

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): A dialectical behavior therapy that uses some elements such as mindfulness, regulation of mood as well as endurance of a stressful state.

Medication Management: Specific drugs like SSRI or mood stabilizers can be prescribed to help regulate the dysphoria. When it comes to antioxidants, our medical practitioners provide critical supervision and dosages for optimal results.

Support Groups: Self-help groups work because they allow individuals in need help to interact with other people who are also experiencing or have experienced the same ordeal. Group discussion may help reduce feelings of isolation since individuals can share their complaints with other patients.

Family Therapy: Family members can also play a significant role in the treatment, and their participation may be necessary for the recovery. Family therapy sessions will be centered around enhancing the communication, and ICD understanding, as well as identifying instrumentality in supporting the person with ICD.
