- Drug Rehab
The treatments of alcohol and drug addiction, gambling addiction, and eating disorders are typically complicated by the presence of additional psychological conditions (commonly referred to as ‘dual diagnoses’). If these underlying conditions are not treated, the patient is most likely not going to be able to achieve lasting freedom from his/her dependencies.
- Alcohol Treatment
Tekuma Recovery Group recommends a Therapeutic Community in Israel for alcohol treatment. Alcohol treatment cannot be successful unless the alcoholic is convinced that his life is out of control and that his belief that he can remain in control is shattered. Step One of the Twelve Steps is an essential ingredient on the road to maintaining sobriety. However, in addition to the steps, Tekuma Recovery Group also subscribes to the concept of fellowship, and the dependence on others to help maintain sobriety each and every day.
- Residential Drug and Alcohol Treatment Programs
Unlike most residential drug and alcohol treatment programs, which require only a 30 day stay, Tekuma Recovery Group recommends no less than a 120-day treatment. Historically, the 30-day requirement was based on non-clinical factors such as the limitations of insurance coverage.
- Drug and Alcohol Treatment
Tekuma Recovery Group recommends several different uniquely effective Therapeutic Communities in Israel which feature drug and alcohol treatment both for first-time addicts and for those who have had multiple relapses despite their repeated attempts to achieve sobriety. An important ingredient in the treatment approach in these communities is that their residents establish sufficient physical and emotional distance from all the familiar people, places, and things that have up until now reinforced their negative behaviors.
- Drug Rehab Center
Substance abuse means the use of potentially addictive substances such as alcohol, various forms of opiates, including heroin, and regularly prescribed pain medications of all sorts, which interfere with the quality of life and functioning at work, home, and in the social realm.
- Eating Disorders
Perhaps no other addiction is more easily identified as such than an eating disorder in all its possible forms. The compulsion to either over eat, or under eat and the various accompanying forms of compulsive evacuations of stomach and bowel contents can properly be described as addictive in nature. Similarly to other self harm behavior such as cutting, burning, or branding, and the compulsive abuse of drugs and alcohol, the eating disorder is a symptom unconsciously designed to be an illusory solution to otherwise intolerable feelings of shame, anxiety, and guilt.
- Borderline Personality Disorder
Borderline Personality Disorder is probably currently overdiagnosed by mental health professionals. It was once a psychiatric disorder that was the province of primarily medical psychiatrists whose treatment focus was enacted through the lens of psychoanalytic inquiry and theory. As with other diagnoses over the past 20 years, BPD (borderline personality disorder) has gradually become a badge of social respectability if not prestige especially among the young. What was once an obscure and arguably difficult diagnosis to make with any certainty has now become a buzz word and elevated to the level of social chatter.
- Gambling Addiction
Gambling addiction is a recognized psychiatric disorder and as such falls into the same category as other dependencies such as drug and alcohol abuse disorders which are similarly defined as psychiatric disorders. What makes gambling addiction similar to these other dependencies is that it is easily disguised by the prevailing social mores of contemporary society in which a certain level of alcohol and even drug consumption is acceptable and even encouraged so that its pathological dimensions are easily camouflaged. Gambling in contemporary society is similarly encouraged.
