Shefeena Jacob, Dr. Shikha Sharma


Abstract: The present study is an attempt to examine the efficacy of Motivational Enhancement Therapy & Progressive Muscle Relaxation on depression, anxiety and irritability in Opioid dependent prisoners. When patients experience co- morbid symptoms like anxiety, depression, irritability, tremors, one of the ways our body responds is with muscle tension. Progressive muscle relaxation is a method that helps to relieve the tension. A purposive random sample of 42 Opioid dependent prisoners between age group of 25 50 years, admitted in Psychiatry IPD of Geetanjali Medical College & Hospital, Udaipur (Raj. ) for de-addiction were used for the study. Among them 28 patients were given only Pharmacotherapy (Group A) and 14 patients were given both Progressive Muscle Relaxation and Pharmacotherapy (Group B). Irritability, Depression, Anxiety Scale (IDAS) was administered to measure irritability, depression and anxiety in patients. The results of t- test showed that, there exists a significant difference in pre and post scores of irritability, anxiety and depression in both Group A & B. So the present study revealed the effect of Motivational Enhancement Therapy & PMR in the reduction of depression, anxiety and irritability symptoms in the Opioid dependent patients. It implies that, the combination of MET & PMR can provide improvement in the symptoms.
