Consultation “Equal to equal”

There are many approaches to the treatment of alcoholism, gambling addiction and other types of addiction, Peer counseling transformation each of which is effective in its own way, we at the RC “Transformation” use the most effective of them in our comprehensive rehabilitation program. Peer counseling is among the most effective mental health treatment methods worldwide and is a key factor in the success of a rehabilitation program. Thanks to the use of this technique, the path of addicts in the course of rehabilitation and treatment of addictions is much easier to overcome.

A peer is a member of the therapeutic community with personal experience of substance use and successful, long-term recovery. Thus, this is a person who knows the wrong side of illness and recovery, has gone through the same steps of recovery. An equal can be a client, a psychotherapist, a social worker, and even a director of a rehabilitation center with a successful experience of recovery, who has a long history of psychoactive substance use. It is the people who were once addicted like no other doctor in drug addiction who are able to understand the world of the addict who came for treatment – his emotions, thoughts, reactions, memories, etc.

This approach allows you to recognize the depth of the client’s problem, find the shortest path to the addict’s inner world, understand his feelings and aspirations and motivate the person to treat addiction. In group psychotherapy, the “equal” shares his experience of use and successful recovery, this contributes to the correction of attitudes and knowledge of the addict. Motivates him to change his behavior and life.

Alcoholism, drug addiction and gambling addiction are psychological diseases, each addict has his own psychological barriers, which are often beyond the control of an ordinary doctor or psychologist. Such patients need a special approach, the approach of people who, through their personal experience, have experienced everything that the RC client goes through. When a person who turns to us for help realizes that he is truly understood, they hear that there are people like himself next to him, the addict gradually opens up to study his problem and absorb a new healthy lifestyle. There is no longer a need to close oneself off from a society that is unable to understand its complex inner world, there is no need to lie and avoid answers. The equal helps the client to change and start a new life without alcohol and drugs.

Novel, 38
Before I turned to MAA for help, it seemed to me that my life had lost all meaning. I was on the verge of being overcome by feelings of despair. Thoughts about death. The drug has destroyed all areas of my life. Rehabilitation restored my confidence in myself. The team of the IAA, Dnipro region, in my opinion, performed a miracle. I completed the program and made the decision to learn and develop in the organization. The support of the MAA therapeutic community gives me the confidence and strength to move on and live soberly.
I am 18 years old. I have been drinking alcohol for 3 years, which is why all these years I got into unpleasant situations, after which I miraculously remained alive. Because of my use, I lost control of myself, relations with my family deteriorated intolerable. At one point, my father brought me to rehabilitation, for which I am now grateful to him after completing a full course of rehabilitation. I had enough time to think it over and put everything in its place in my delusions and inability to control my use and further life. This organization taught me a lot. First, I learned to live in sobriety, cry and laugh with real feelings, say “I love” my parents, appreciate many little things that I had not previously paid attention to, reconsidered my views on the world. MAA is changing my life in stages.
I have been using opium for about 8 years and have three convictions. I haven't worked anywhere for more than two months. Once in rehabilitation, he stopped using drugs, established relations with relatives and friends. He began to live a normal life - for which I am grateful to the association.
I express my deep gratitude to the staff of the center for their desire to make our relatives healthy, to guide them along the difficult path to a sober life and to instill a desire to stay sober. Roman has been married for three years. When our child was born, I found out that my husband is a drug addict. He was on the verge and did not know how to continue to live, but he wanted to get rid of this bad habit. Roman's mom and I found an ad for MAA Dnipro on the Internet and called there. The next day he was already at the center, where he began to undergo a rehabilitation program in the city of Dnipro. 30 months have passed, my husband is sober. At the moment, he works in the same center where he underwent rehabilitation. Now my husband is helping other addicts to fight the “disease”. Now we rejoice in every day we have lived, I have no more anxiety for my husband, for the future of our family. I know that everything will be fine now. I don't want to go back to the past. Thanks to the center, my spouse climbed out of the bottom, where drugs had lowered him. I wish you health, success in your hard work, to which you devote your life. Thank you.
I want to say a huge thank you to the staff of MAA Dnipro, who support my son Roman in sobriety to this day. The son was addicted for 17 years, when our family learned about his
