Tratamiento al Trastorno obsesivo compulsivo (TOC)

Studies show that obsessive-compulsive disorder is more prevalent than previously thought, debunking the misconception of its rarity. The perceived scarcity of OCD cases stems from individuals concealing their condition due to their awareness of the irrationality of their thoughts and behaviors, often coupled with feelings of shame. However, significant therapeutic advancements have emerged, providing renewed hope for those grappling with a disorder historically known for its resistance to conventional treatments. These breakthroughs offer relief and improved outcomes.

Losing a loved one is one of the most distressing and, unfortunately, frequent experiences people face. Most people who experience normal grief go through a period of pain, numbness, and even guilt and anger. Gradually these feelings ease, and it is possible to accept the loss and move on.

For some people, feelings of loss are weakening and do not improve, even with time. This is known as complicated grief, sometimes called “persistent complex bereavement disorder”. In complicated grief, the painful emotions last so long and are so intense that you find it difficult to recover from the loss and get on with your own life.

Each person has his or her own way of coping with the grief experience. The order and duration of these stages may vary from person to person:

  • Accepting the reality of your loss
  • Allowing yourself to feel the pain of your loss
  • Adjusting to a new reality in which the deceased person is no longer present 
  • Having other relationships

These differences are normal. However, if you do not get through these stages in more than a year after the death of a loved one, you may be going through a complicated grief. In this case, seek treatment. It can help you come to terms with your loss and regain a sense of peace and acceptance.


During the first few months after a loss, many signs and symptoms of normal grief are the same as those of complicated grief. However, while the symptoms of normal grief begin to gradually disappear, those of complicated grief persist or worsen. Complicated grief is like being in a state of constant and intensified grief that does not allow you to recover.

Signs and symptoms of complicated grief may include the following:

  • Deep sadness, grief and constant thoughts about the loss of the loved one.
  • Lack of concentration on matters other than the death of the loved one
  • Extreme attention to memories of the loved one or excessive overriding of memories
  • Intense and persistent longing or yearning for the deceased
  • Problems accepting the death
  • Numbness or detachment
  • Resentment of the loss
  • Feeling that life has no meaning or purpose
  • Lack of trust in others
  • Inability to enjoy life or remember positive experiences with your loved one

omplicated grief may also be diagnosed if you continue to exhibit any of the following:

  • You have trouble carrying out your daily activities
  • Isolating yourself from others and withdrawing from social activities
  • You have depression, deep sadness, feelings of guilt, or self-reproach.
  • You think you did something wrong or that you could have avoided the death
  • You feel that life is not worth living without the loved one.
  • You wish you had died with your loved one


Complicated grief can affect you physically, mentally and socially. Without proper treatment, complications can include:

  • Depression
  • Suicidal thoughts and behaviors
  • Anxiety, including post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Significant sleep disturbances
  • Increased risk of physical illnesses such as heart disease, cancer or high blood pressure
  • Difficulty coping with daily tasks, maintaining relationships and performing long-term work activities
  • Alcohol and nicotine use or substance abuse


Tratamiento al Trastorno de pánico

The main symptom of panic disorder is the sudden and intense occurrence of severe anguish, typically appearing spontaneously, lasting for a short duration, and manifesting as episodic episodes. The symptoms of panic attacks are physical manifestations involving several organs or systems, accompanied by a sensation of fear or terror, which patients frequently interpret at that moment as imminent death or fear of losing their mind.

Tratamiento a la Fobia social

It is a common, chronic and weakening condition that causes social or occupational disability and can often lead to addictions such as drug and alcohol addiction. It is often unrecognized and therefore undiagnosed as it is often considered to be a constituent part of the personality of some individuals, and it is impossible for many to differentiate between shyness and social phobia. The general population has the belief that there are no adequate medical treatments for this type of disorder which is not true and fortunately its treatment is successful with both medication and therapies.

Specific phobias: They are the most common disease in the group of anxiety disorders. Traditionally, phobias have been defined in relation to the object that provokes anxiety and avoidance. With the exception of the fear of flying, it is common for patients to see a physician, as patients recognize the irrationality of their fears; and furthermore, these disorders generally produce little disability.

Tratamiento a la Ludopatia

Pathological gambling addiction, also called pathological gambling, is the irrepressible desire to continue gambling despite the havoc it has on your life. Gambling means that you are willing to risk something you value in the hope of receiving something that is of even greater value.

Gambling can stimulate the brain’s reward systems just like drugs or alcohol, and cause addiction. If you have a gambling problem, you may continually place bets, hide your behavior, drain your savings, accumulate debt, or even resort to theft or fraud to support your addiction.

Pathological gambling is a serious disorder that can destroy lives. Although treatment for pathological gambling can be complex, many people struggling with the disorder have found help through professional treatment.

Signs and symptoms of pathological gambling include the following:

  • Being preoccupied with gambling, e.g., continually planning how to win more money from gambling.
  • Feeling the need to gamble increasingly larger sums of money to achieve the same thrill
  • Trying to control, reduce or stop betting, without success
  • Feeling restless or irritable when trying to cut back on betting
  • Gambling to escape problems or alleviate feelings of hopelessness, guilt, anxiety or depression
  • Trying to recoup lost money with more gambling (recouping losses)
  • Lying to family members or others to hide the extent of gambling
  • Jeopardizing or losing important relationships, a job, or academic or work opportunities because of gambling
  • Resorting to theft or fraud to recover gambling money
  • Asking other people to take care of your financial problems because you gambled your money.
  • Unlike most casual gamblers who stop when they lose or set a limit on how much they can lose, people with pathological gambling cannot help but continue to gamble to win their money back, a pattern that becomes increasingly destructive over time.


Pathological gambling (gambling addiction) can have profound and long-lasting consequences in your life, such as:

  • Relationship problems
  • Financial problems, such as bankruptcy
  • Legal problems or incarceration
  • Poor job performance or job loss
  • Poor general health
  • Suicide, suicide attempts or thoughts of suicide

Treatment for pathological gambling may include an outpatient program, an inpatient program or a residential treatment program, depending on your needs and resources. Treatment for substance abuse, depression, anxiety or any other mental disorder may be part of your treatment plan for pathological gambling.
