Clinic Hospitalisation: Rehabilitation - Psychiatric - Psychogeriatric


Treatment of Crisis Incidents

The process of dealing with an incident in psychiatric crisis is perhaps one of the most controversial subjects in modern mental health professions. Based on the rapid progress of psychiatry, pharmacology and psychology - psychotherapy, addressing the acute phase of an incident has become much more efficient but also more complicated to process.

Stabilization of Chronic Diseases

Often the families of a chronic psychiatric patient , who has been in a clinic for a big part of his life, experience for this member a loss as the activities, meetings and family gatherings with the patient is very limited or sometimes nonexistent.
The Lyrakou Clinic specialzes in a full range of psychiatric disorders (depression, psychosis, manic depression, organic psychosyndrome, paranoid personality etc.) and can treat effectively symptoms such as:

1. Suicide attempt
2. Hallucinations (visual, auditory, etc.)
3. Obsessions
4. Psychotic / psychotic episodes
5. Aggression

Our Clinic offers rehabiliation services for:
Pharmaceutical Substances
The addiction to pharmaceutical substances, like benzodiazepines (eg stedon, tavor, vulbegal, hipnosedon etc) and barbiturates, is perhaps one of the most common types of addiction in the world.

The first contact with these pharmaceutical substances usually begins with  a medical prescription, after certain physical and psychological symptoms arise. Usually one begins to receive benzodiazepines and barbiturates because  a psychiatric or physical disease is expressed, reporting symptoms such as “depression”, disturbed sleep, insomnia, stress, panic etc...

Many people trying to fight some kind of mental disorder or detoxification from illegal drugs arrive in the abuse of these substances in order to have the same suppressive effect. During the rehabilitation emphasis should be given to withdrawal symptoms, because without proper medical coverage can be fatal and is clearly preferable to be coped with in a clinical environment.

Detoxification - Alcohol Dependence

Alcohol is the most widespread and legal addictive substance, with the majority of registered deaths worldwide (including pathological causes and deaths from car accidents, work, etc.). Detoxification from alcohol is more dangerous and should be given special attention during the treatment, because the patient may "fall" in delirium which  can even be fatal for his life.

Drug Substance Rehabiliation

The dependence on drugs is usually a lengthy and costly effort for the patient and the family environment. Although the physical process of withdrawal can be defeated relatively easily and quickly with the appropriate medication, the stage of 'brain' rehabilitation requires time and great effort primarily by the patient himself.

Continued involvement in various gambling games like roulette, poker, horse racing, the Kino etc. can be classified as pathological gambling. Typical symptoms of this disease are constant emotional transitions (shifts) and development of behaviors characterized by  lies, ingenuity and cleverness.  During the period of detoxification can occur withdrawal symptoms similar to those of alcohol and drug abuse  (long term abstinence).  It requires a well-structured psychotherapeutic context.

Dual Diagnosis

As morbidity we mean the simultaneous existence of the disease of an addiction and mental illness of some other nature (depression, anxiety disorder, etc.). With the right tools (psychometric, experienced psychiatrists and psychologists) it may be diagnosed if there is an underlying mental disease and to facilitate long stages of detoxification and rehabilitation.

Treatment of Dementia - Alzheimer

There are a number of favorable means that can facilitate the situation of a patient and his relatives. These improvements can be achieved through physical, emotional and also mental activation, for example with the help of physiotherapy or occupational therapy.


The Alzheimer's disease was first described in 1907 by physician Alois Alzheimer. The most commonly known symptom of Alzheimer's disease is confusion. This behavior causes us in particular to become "alienated" from others and to be unpredictable in our interactions.


Dementia is a widespread disease of the brain and is manifested by a gradual reduction of higher cognitive functions (memory, reason, critical ability, executive functions) followed by progressive and significant decline in functionality and visible changes in personality.
