Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) are usually treated in clinics with psychiatric drugs that have harmful side-effects. See more on ADHD/ADD.
Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) - shooting up to 460 volts of electricity through a patient's brain is based on the theory that it "resets" the brain but has never been scientifically proven. See more on ECT treatment.
Psychosurgery treatment such as the lobotomy is cutting-up and removing pieces of a patient's brain to "treat" mental disorders, but the results are the same - brain damage. See more on Psychosurgery.
Deep Brain Stimulation involves threading wires through the skull and into the brain. Psychiatric hospitals are experimenting with these on the "mentally" ill. See more on Deep Brain Stimulation.
Schizophrenia is generally treated with antipsychotics despite their proven risks and despite studies that show that when patients stop taking these drugs, they improve. See more on Schizophrenia.
Bipolar Disorder is treated with harmful mood stabilizer drugs to "balance" a chemical imbalance in the brain. There is no physical scientific test to prove a chemical imbalance. See more on "brain-chemical imbalance".
Today, a psychiatric clinic diagnosis almost always results in the prescription of a psychiatric drug. But are these drugs the "miracle pill" that hospital psychiatrists say they are? Actually, no. These drugs come with a host of horrific and sometimes permanent side effects. See more on psychiatric drug side effects.
Ironically, psychiatric rehab centres in Gauteng treat alcohol and drug addiction with substitute medications and drugs that can be just as addictive and more so.
Dementia is treated with powerful mind-altering drugs as well as electroshock "treatment" that sadly, cause premature and unnecessary deaths in geriatric patients. See more on dementia treatments.
