“Their An­ti­do­te to Techno-Ad­dic­tions Are He­re in Las Pra­de­ras”

So­ciety is a mo­saic of in­ter­ac­tions that en­gulfs mo­dern man­kind and laun­ches in a spi­ral of de­pen­den­ce on elec­tro­nic gad­gets and so­cial-me­dia stan­dards. Ho­we­ver, the­re is a pla­ce west of Ha­va­na whe­re spe­cia­lists ha­ve co­me up with a spe­cia­li­zed the­ra­peu­tic com­mu­nity that helps overcome the ad­dic­tion to technologies, a phe­no­me­non as­so­cia­ted with in­dus­trial de­ve­lop­ment and with high in­ci­den­ce in the to­day's world.

La Pradera is the ideal pla­ce to re­cei­ve pa­tients and their fa­mi­lies. A na­tu­ral en­vi­ron­ment, ba­rely a 20-mi­nu­te dri­ve from the city's down­town area, is just ex­ce­llent for re­dis­co­ve­ring the paths to a li­fe pro­ject, to the ex­pres­sion of the in­di­vi­dual and his ap­ti­tu­des.

Ac­cor­ding the pres­ti­gious psy­chia­trist Dr. Ri­car­do Gon­zá­lez, the ad­dic­tion to technologies iso­la­tes the so­cial en­vi­ron­ment and thus pre­vents the de­ve­lop­ment of the per­so­na­lity and the cog­ni­ti­ve abi­li­ties ne­ces­sary to ma­ke plans, en­joy so­cial si­tua­tions or feel em­pathy to­wards ot­hers. The re­per­cus­sion of this pat­ho­logy in­crea­ses in the ear­liest ages when the ma­tu­ra­tion of the brain is still far from being com­ple­ted.

The the­rapy com­bi­nes group work with mo­dern diag­nos­tic means to ru­le out pos­si­ble re­la­ted cau­ses or treat them in ca­ses whe­re the ad­dic­tion to technologies is a res­pon­se to so­me ty­pe of ail­ment. Ho­we­ver, the ba­sic phi­lo­sophy behind the pro­gram is ba­sed on a clo­se re­la­tions­hip among the me­di­cal team, the re­la­ti­ves and the pa­tients.

All the ex­per­ti­se pi­led up over years of de­di­ca­ted work in terms of treat­ments and reha­bi­li­ta­tions, is pla­ced in the crea­tion of a cus­to­mi­zed pro­gram that seeks to pin­point each and every pa­tient's qua­li­ties and of­fer him the op­por­tu­nity to de­ve­lop tho­se va­lues. Dr. Nelly Cris­ti­na Val­di­via One­ga, head of the health cen­ter, ad­mits the treat­ment can in­clu­de equi­ne the­rapy, crea­ti­ve ac­ti­vi­ties or tours to the city's cul­tu­ral and his­to­ric li­fe.

In the sa­me breath, for lar­ge fa­mi­lies wis­hing to join the pro­cess, an alternative ti­me­ta­ble can be in­clu­ded with trans­por­ta­tion means and ac­com­mo­da­tion coor­di­na­tion ser­vi­ces. This be­ne­fit -ac­cor­ding to Dr. Val­di­via- has been thought out for mot­hers with mo­re than one child. Whi­le one gets the the­rapy, the ot­her may know the ca­pi­tal, tra­vel to the bea­ches and get in­vol­ved in the pro­ces­ses as long as spe­cia­lists see it fit.

Ex­ce­len­cias had the chan­ce to ta­ke a clo­ser look at this pro­cess when it vi­si­ted the “La Pradera” In­ter­na­tio­nal Health Cen­ter, a pla­ce that can be ta­ken for a re­sort de­sig­ned for a good rest. The fa­ci­lity boasts spa­cious apart­ments, butler ser­vi­ce and spe­cia­li­zed at­ten­tion. The the­rapy can stretch out so­mew­he­re bet­ween 45 to 90 days, re­eva­lua­tions are sche­du­led when ne­ces­sary.

The team of spe­cia­lists is ready to lay ba­re be­fo­re the eyes of tho­se who ha­ve li­mi­ted their world to tech­noad­dic­tions that they are im­por­tant and that so­ciety needs their vir­tues and con­tri­bu­tions.

THE “LA PRADERA” IN­TER­NA­TIO­NAL HEALTH CLI­NIC OF­FERS A NEW SER­VI­CE TO OVERCOME AD­DIC­TIONS UNRELATED TO SUBSTANCES,

BUT RAT­HER TO BEHA­VIORS, IN­CLU­DING AD­DIC­TIONS TO TECH­NO­LOGY, SHOP­PING SPREES OR FOOD, AMONG OT­HERS
