Treatments for Behavior Changes
Treatments for Behavior Changes:
Treatment plans for behavior changes are individualized depending on the cause, the presence of coexisting diseases, the age and medical history of the patient, and other factors. Treatment generally involves a multifaceted plan that addresses the underlying or associated cause and helps to moderate behavior so a person can function effectively and lead as active and normal a life as possible. Early diagnosis and treatment can often maximize the effectiveness of treatment.
Treatment of mental health disorders and addictions may include a combination of medications, detoxification programs, rehabilitation programs, addiction recovery programs, psychotherapy and ongoing medical and psychological monitoring.
Alzheimer's disease can cause severe behavior changes, but there is no treatment that can cure or slow the progression of the disease. However, medication may help people with Alzheimer's disease to improve cognitive functioning and lesson behavior changes.
Behavior changes can be early symptoms of hypoxia (a lack of oxygen in the body's tissues). hypoxia is treated with supplemental oxygen and by treating the underlying cause of hypoxia, such as COPD.
Behavior changes, such as agitation and anxiety, caused by age-related cognitive decline can often be minimized by treating the cognitive decline. This includes multipronged treatment plan that includes a physical exercise program, a memory-enhancement program, eating a highly nutritious diet, ensuring good hydration, and supplements, such as gingko.
Other more serious causes of behavior changes need more intensive treatment. These include stroke, anemia, brain tumor, subdural hematoma, meningitis, brain abscess, hydrocephalus and encephalopathy. Treatment plans vary depending on the specific cause and may involve medications, blood transfusions, regular medical monitoring, surgical procedures, rehabilitation, speech therapy, lifestyle and dietary changes, hospitalization and life support measures.
