What exactly is addiction and how is it effectively treated?
(PRWEB) February 04, 2015
What exactly is addiction and how is it effectively treated? The question still raises intense debate amongst practitioners working in the helping professions. In a talk titled “Addictions and the Psychotherapeutic Approach”, hosted by The Psychotherapy Society of Hong Kong this February 11, Alastair Mordey of The Cabin Hong Kong will outline the bio/psycho/social nature of the illness and the reasons why psychotherapeutic interventions are still arguably the most effective form of ongoing treatment.
Alastair is the Program Director of the newly opened The Cabin Hong Kong, a subsidiary of the world-leading The Cabin Addiction Services Group. He is a highly-experienced and certified addiction counselor with over a decade of experience in the UK's public treatment system, and is the architect of The Cabin’s innovative and highly successful Recovery Zones addiction treatment model.
The Cabin Hong Kong is Asia’s first outpatient addiction treatment center which specializes in treating both substance (alcohol and drugs) and process addictions (internet, sex, gambling etc.). Located in the heart of Hong Kong’s bustling Central district and offering its services in English at flexible hours, the center caters primarily to the expat community and locals working at the executive level. For instance, clients can attend treatment sessions for the center’s main Recovery Zones program after work on weekdays – enabling them to keep professional and personal commitments whilst in treatment.
In this talk, Alastair will describe how the Recovery Zones model can be used to address the psychological symptoms of addiction to influence a truly holistic recovery. He will then throw the floor open for questions from the audience. For those who would like to attend the event, details are as follows:
