The problem of drug addiction has become especially importantsince the beginning of the 90s of the last century. Most countries in the world define drug addiction as a national, economic, social, demographic problem.
Modern clinics which apply the advanced experience of foreign drug treatment institutions are appearing. One of these rehabilitation centers is ours. Here our experienced specialists use the most effective advanced techniques against pathological addiction. It has been established that drug addiction can be completely overcomed only in isolation and complete medical support.
Drugs addiction treatment is a continuing complex process and the following doctors take part in in it:
Patients who have been using narcotic for a long time have various chronic somatic pathologies. For their treatment, the development of a supportive therapy strategy, the help of the following narrowly specialized specialists is needed:
- infectious disease specialists;
- venereologists, and the like.
The key to effective relapse-free drug addiction treatment is the complex step-by-step impact of the team of specialists of the rehabilitation center.
Drug addiction is a pathological craving for the use of psychoactive substances that form physical and mental dependence. To treat addiction, it is necessary to act on both aspects. Therefore, the therapeutic course goes on in stages, where each stage has succession and sequence.
Treatment is going on in a healthy therapeutic community in the conditions of patients’ isolation from the usual social circle, to prevent a relapse of the disease. To establish the severity of addiction, the patient’s condition and the development of an individual therapy plan, it is necessary to undergo a comprehensive examination.
Visual symptoms of drug addiction are not sufficient and informative diagnostic signs. Therefore, an addicted person must have laboratory and instrumental examinations:
Comprehensive diagnostics is necessary to accurately establish the type of drug, especially if the patient arrives at the hospital in a state of abstinence or overdose. Often drug addiction is of a combined nature – the patient uses not one type of narcotic substance, but several.
In addition, patients tend to withhold information about the duration of addiction, dose, and the presence of somatic diseases. All this information, necessary for the development of a competent treatment program, can be obtained only as a result of an in-depth examination.
- analysis of blood, urine, and, if necessary, other biological fluids;
- Ultrasound of internal organs, etc..
Specialists assign their own research. In a modern drug treatment center, there are all the possibilities, without leaving the hospital, to go through:
Узкие специалисты назначают собственные исследования. В современном наркологическом центре имеются все возможности, не покидая стационара, пройти:
Comprehensive diagnostics is necessary to accurately establish the type of drug, especially if the patient arrives at the hospital in a state of abstinence or overdose. Often drug addiction has a combined nature – the patient uses not one type of narcotic substance, but several.
In addition, patients tend to withhold information about the duration of addiction, dose, and the presence of somatic diseases. All this information necessary for the development of a competent treatment program can be obtained only as a result of an in-depth examination.
The next stage of therapy is cleansing the body of a drug addict from metabolites of psychoactive substances, endotoxins and eliminating physical dependence. This stage is carried out during the stopping he drug usage, which causes a state of withdrawal symptoms. Therefore, in addition to detoxification, the patient is given a course of symptomatic and supportive therapy.
Depending on the patient’s condition, an intensive detoxification course can be used, which is carried out only in a hospital setting, with the presence of resuscitation specialists and appropriate equipment. At this stage, improving blood parameters progressive methods of purification of blood and lymph from metabolites and physiotherapy methods are used:
- membrane plasmapheresis;
- xenon therapy (use of an inert gas);
- ILBI – intravenous laser blood irradiation;
- UFO blood;
- oxygen therapy.
So, for example, an innovative method of xenon therapy helps not only to quickly restore the patient’s body, but also to activate cerebral circulation, improve cognitive abilities, and facilitate mutual understanding with a psychologist.
The use of modern hardware detoxification methods allows:
- stop withdrawal symptoms faster and more completely;
- reduce the dosage of the medications used;
- eliminate not only physical, but also mental disorders;
- shorten the detoxification phase and move on to rehabilitation faster
During withdrawal, patients often experience sleep disturbance. To quickly eliminate insomnia, facilitate falling asleep and deep restful sleep, Electrosleep is used. Thanks to the use of modern techniques and complex effects, the detoxification procedure is more comfortable and much faster than before. After stopping the withdrawal syndrome and cleansing the body, the next stage begins.
Drugs destroy the psyche and body systems. In order to continue treatment, it is necessary to carry out supportive therapy, the program of which is being developed by specialized doctors. Addiction is accompanied by mental and behavioral disorders. Therefore, after assessing the patient’s mental health, the psychiatrist prescribes drug therapy and assesses how consciously the patient seeks to obtain a result. Psychotherapeutic treatment occurs at all stages – from the patient’s admission to the hospital and after his discharge.
Physical addiction eliminating is only part of a successful addiction treatment. After the patient is physically stable, the stage of psychological dependence elimination begins. This is the most difficult and long stage. Psychologists and psychotherapists work with the patient. We conduct individual and group lessons, and use modern methods of therapy:
- informational and motivational;
- personality-oriented, etc.
Pshycocorection includes the following stages:
- efficiently transforming;
- control and evaluation.
During the first 3 stages, the motivation for refusing to use drugs is consolidated, the abilities for self-knowledge and awareness are identified and consolidated. During the fourth and fifth stages, the search and correction of self-control abilities are established. The sixth stage involves psycho-correction of the abilities for self-organization.
This stage is carried out at the request of the patient or according to indications, if the specialist notes the lack of stability of the drug addict and the possibility of a breakdown. Blockers work only after detoxification and are not the main treatment for drug addiction. Implant drugs are used at the stage of rehabilitation under strict medical supervision.
The blocking of opiate receptors is carried out with the help of medications taken orally (in the form of pills) or systemically (“filing”). The patient loses the ability to experience pleasure from the using of psychotropic substances, and the appearance of unpleasant withdrawal symptoms reduces the desire to use them.
Drug blockade is an effective remedy for relapse only if the patient has a conscious desire for a normal life without artificial doping.
After the treatment is finished the drug addict is not abandoned, we offer therapeutic accompaniment provided with our specialists. После выписки из стационара наркозависимый не остается без помощи специалистов, ему предлагается терапевтическое сопровождение. A former drug addict is prescribed supportive therapy for:
- raising immunity;
- improving mood, sleep;
- stabilization of the psycho-emotional state;
- stopping the desire to use drugs.
2 weeks after release, the former patient must come for a free consultation with a narcologist.

The patient’s relatives need the help of a family psychotherapist at the stage of rehabilitation, resocialization. It depends on the psycho-emotional climate, family relationships, whether the addict will have a desire to solve problems in the simplest way – with a new dose of the drug.
