Addiction research and therapy

The World Health Organization has estimated that neuropsychiatric disorders and suicide account for 12.7% of the global burden of disease. Major depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, alcohol abuse, and obsessive compulsive disorder account for five of the 10 leading causes of disability in low and middle income countries. In high income countries, dementia is the third most common neuropsychiatric disorder. Most treatment methods for mental health disorders can be categorized as either somatic psychotherapeutic. Somatic treatments include drugs, electroconvulsive therapy, and other therapies that stimulate the brain transcranial. Psychotherapeutic treatments include psychotherapy, behavior therapy techniques and hypnotherapy.
