For those who need hospitalization, we offer different hospitalization programs:
- Inpatient drug-addiction program: When dealing with substance dependence such as alcohol or cocaine, it is recommended to move the person away from an environment that puts him/her at a higher risk for consumption. Some people require hospitalization during the first stages of the recovery process, not only to ensure his/her physical health and well-being during detoxification, but also to set the basis of global lifestyle changes that encourage long-term abstinence.
- Acute treatment for mental illness: Designed for those people whose symptoms are of greater severity and hence involving greater impact upon day-to-day life. With the objective of providing the most suitable treatment to recover their functionality as soon as possible.
- Diagnostic program: Through a specific clinical interview, physical exam, and supported by diagnostic tools such as blood tests, brain CT scans and psychometric tests among others, we can shed light on your doubts about your concerns.
- Wellness program: Designed to escape from the stress of modern life, and to recover a healthy balance on the physical, emotional and cognitive levels. Choose from a variety of services, including physiotherapy, mindfulness, yoga, acupuncture, therapeutic walks by the shore… Making the most of the superb weather and atmosphere in Marbella, in a private hospital with all the comforts, and only a few meters from the beach.
The Doctor has agreements with two reputable private hospitals to provide you the best quality and services: HC Marbella, and Cortijo Care. Depending on each client’s profile and preferences, hospitalization will take place in one facility or the other. You will be treated by the doctor and her team, with the possibility of running diagnostic tests if needed.
It consists of the administration of tests, scales and other methods of proven validity and reliability, to measure and quantify psychological variables that help in the process of evaluation.
Psychometry is another tool that may be useful at the outpatient or inpatient setting, to complement the information obtained at the clinical interview.
Nowadays it is easy to find tools on the internet that supposedly analyze our personality or our mood, etc. One must be very careful because not all of them are valid and reliable, and one must know how to analyze and interpret the results.
Whether you’re hospitalized or not, if needed and always under your consent, Dr. Moreno may order some tests at the hospital, such as blood tests, EKG, brain CT scans or a genetic analysis, among other possibilities, depending on the case.
She could also consult with or refer you to other specialists such as internists, neurologists, endocrinologists or others included in the qualified medical team at HC International Hospital.
Each person’s response to medication is very diverse, from the therapeutic effect, to the risk of presenting side effects.
Pharmacogenetics helps identify the most appropriate medication for you with a DNA analysis from a saliva sample, maximizing the probability of therapeutic effect and minimizing the chance of suffering side effects.
We offer different genetic analysis packs that assess your response to antidepressants, anxiolytics, hypnotics, antipsychotics and antiepileptic drugs.
