The Cure for Alcohol Addiction in Scottsdale with combination

The Cure for Alcohol Addiction in Scottsdale with combination Naltrexone plus targeted specialized therapy Traditional alcohol addiction treatment unfortunately has failed the vast majority of people and sadly there exists no legitimate option that offers success other than the methodology I have found through research and practice. The foundation of the method is utilizing a medication called Naltrexone in a manner referred to as the "Sinclair Method.)  Whether complete sobriety is your goal or whether learning to control your drinking is desired; the solution to the problem continues to elude both patients and traditional physicians. A primary reason for the lack of successful options comes down to an outdated conceptualization and propagation of the alcohol addiction illness. Alcohol addiction undoubtedly is best conceptualized as a medical illness but all medical illnesses involve a complex interplay between genetic predisposition and factors influencing the ultimate manifestation of disease course. An illness and disease course can be altered by modifying the driving factors involved in the progression...

Video game addiction: A new Cure with Naltrexone

Video game addiction: Cured with Naltexone Video game addiction and technology addiction has become the most concerning addiction epidemic in decades. Video game addiction continues to consume kids and young adults to the point they are disconnected from the real-world. Parents continue to be frustrated yet often have no successful way of helping their kids. These video game addictions and technology addictions represent gateway behaviors into further addiction and overall loss of function in society. With further social withdrawal comes the inability to form healthy relationships which are the cornerstones to love, friendship and success in the work-place. As these young kids turn into adults with this inability to function, they become more withdrawn and ultimately may turn to other addictions to cope with the emotional pain. The cycle is vicious and there is often severe resistance from the kids to get help. Fortunately there is a new and innovative approach to curing video game addiction which is the utilization of a...

Oral ketamine for Depression and Pain

Oral Ketamine for depression and pain is a potent weapon in the arsenal of a educated psychiatrist’s tool-bag. It is often the case that chronic pain and depression are so intertwined that distinguishing between which causes which becomes impossible. Many patients find no success with traditional anti-depressants for depression and pain such as Cymbalta, Effexor, Elavil or Nortriptyline. Oral Ketamine for depression and pain is a new option that, when used by an experienced psychiatrist, can be one component of regaining control over a life filled with extreme depression coupled with the agony of pain. Ketamine acts on NMDA receptors in the brain and spinal cord to modulate control over mood and pain. Traditionally IV infusion Ketamine has been utilized as a treatment for chronic treatment resistant depression but with the availability of oral Ketamine, options now exist to have daily Ketamine treatment at home. Oral Ketamine can be even more effective at controlling pain than IV Ketamine due to the fact...

PTSD after Atrial Fibrillation (AFIB)

Afib and PTSD: Preventing the anxiety cycle after a cardiac arrhythmia Atrial fibrillation a.k.a Afib, can be one of the most traumatizing experience and when these cardiac arrhythmia’s occur, they can leave lasting symptoms of panic or anxiety. I have seen several patient’s this year alone who had an unexpected episode of afib, which is a condition where part of the heart called the atrium, begins to beat erratically, extremely fast and very inefficiently to the point it is a medical emergency. Most people can feel their heart racing and a severe discomfort in their chest. I have seen people from age 18 to age 75 this year alone who had unexpected episodes of afib and they are all left with a rather vicious cycle of fear, anxiety and a realistic chance they could have a repeat episode. A big part of the complexity comes from the fact even during typical anxiety or panic, one can feel their heart is beating excessively...

Treatement resistant anxiety: MAO-l is the option

Severe anxiety and panic disorder: Psychiatrist Michael Yasinski MD discusses his unieque expertise in using MAO-l's to successful treat the most severe cases Treatment resistant anxiety and panic is one of the most common problems I see and I have seen a disappointing trend in the psychiatric community be unwilling to utilize potent tools in the fight against treatment resistant anxiety for a variety of reasons. One of the most potent tools to treat severe anxiety or panic is utilizing an MAO-I (Monoamine oxidase inhibitor). MAO A and MAO B are enzymes in our brain which metabolize neurotransmitters involved in depression. MAO A helps break down dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin and MAO B breaks down dopamine. In addition, MAO-I drugs act to modify other circuits, gene regulation and receptor expression involved in treatment resistant anxiety disorders which goes above and beyond its effect on the 3 well-known neurotransmitters serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine. I have utilized MAO-I’s extensively over the past 3...

CBT | Cognitive behavioral therapy Scottsdale: Specialized treatment approach with Psychiatrist Michael Yasinski MD

CBT therapy in Scottsdale: A integrated psychiatrist's approach CBT therapy is the first line treatment against anxiety disorders. CBT or Cognitive behavioral therapy seeks to address common maladaptive thought patterns such as worrying excessively, creating unnecessary anxiety, catastrophic thinking and negative self-talk. Many psychiatrists do not utilize any form of therapy and unfortunately many people do not get their anxiety appropriately treated. CBT is a potent tool against the entire range of anxiety disorders from generalized anxiety and panic disorder, to PTSD and OCD. With all patients who suffer from anxiety spectrum disorders, I incorporate CBT into the treatment plan. Medications can be helpful as well and as a psychiatrist I am able to integrate selective medications and CBT in order to maximize the success of treatment. Unlike most psychiatrists however I rarely use medications without the integration of cognitive CBT since the long-term success is rarely as robust and I prefer to focus on eliminating the root-cause...

Panic disorder treatment in Scottsdale: Comprehsive approch

Panic disorder treatment in Scottsdale: A personalized and comprehsive approch to a cure Panic disorder is one of the most debilitating psychiatric illnesses and it is also one of the most incorrectly treated. I specialize in Panic disorder treatment and I combine multiple treatment modalities in order to target the underlying problem. This integrative approach combines several things including: 1. Cognitive behavioral therapy-This specific type of therapy is focused on reversing the core behaviors and maladaptive negative thoughts associated with panic disorder and panic attacks. I teach my patients how to identify rational vs. irrational thoughts and they learn how to stop acting on different negative thought patterns. 2. Exposure therapy-This very specialized type of therapy exposes patient’s to their fears and it is a cornerstone of treatment when it comes to Panic disorders and panic attacks. A process called desensitization occurs throughout the exposure therapy process. Unfortunately unless a therapist is very experienced in the treatment of Panic disorders,...

Alcohol Addiction maintenance medication options

Alcohol Addiction maintenance medication options: Fighting against relapse Alcohol addiction relapse is the most frustrating part of the addiction process for many people. If you decide you want to get sober, it is important to incorporate a comprehensive plan in order to fight against the potential to relapse. While medications typically will not be enough on their own to treat an addiction, they can greatly help. The following medications are used as part of my comprehensive approach to alcohol addiction treatment: 1. Naltrexone-This medication acts on our brain’s own opioid receptors and can help target cravings in some people I have personally found a large variation in efficacy of Naltrexone when using it at the traditional dose of 50mg daily. I have seen success and also have seen it not helpful. It has the risk of reducing the desirable pleasure and happiness of life but this varies depending on the person. It is often worth a trial period to see if...

Singlism: a nem phenomenon

Singlism Racism, sexism and now “singlism!” Both men and women have increasingly felt discriminated against choosing to be single, to the point of seeking out relationships and marriage’s simply to fit into society.  Most people laugh when I bring this up outside of therapy but if you stop and think about it for a minute, when is it really “acceptable” in society to fly solo?  Society is designed around the concept of the couple. Basic psychology would argue singlism and people choosing to live single is a fallacy. Our powerful tendency to idealize whatever life choices we have made.  Cognitive dissonance theory—argues that humans cannot tolerate the discomfort that comes from making an irreversible and regrettable choice. So are singles rationalizing their status? Society’s matrimania however is a sign not of how secure we are about the place of marriage in our lives but how insecure. It’s kind of like the last gasp, trying so hard to persuade people that marriage is it, because...
