Drug addiction treatment in Dnipro (Dnipropetrovsk)

Drug addiction is one of the most serious problems in modern society, due to the globality of coverage and its destructive impact on the physical and mental health of a person, his relationship with society.

What is drug addiction, where to get drug addiction treatment in Dnipro   - this article will be discussed about this.

What is drug addiction?

The complexity of drug addiction treatment lies in its multifaceted destructive effect - both on a physical and mental level. Taking the drug can be associated with a desire to experience a feeling of euphoria or to get rid of tension, bad thoughts. The subsequent physical dependence of the organism at the chemical level leads to a painful state ("withdrawal"), which occurs in the absence of the next dose of the drug. Physical (compulsive) attraction is a well-known symptom of drug addiction, expressed in an irresistible desire for systematic drug addiction. The craving for drug use is so strong that it displaces even such vital needs as hunger and thirst. In some cases, drug addiction can be a consequence of a genetic predisposition.

Factors of acquiring drug addiction can be roughly divided into two groups:

  • biological
  • social.

Biological factors include various pathologies of pregnancy, complicated childbirth, severe and chronic childhood diseases (concussions, especially recurrent ones, pneumonia, frequent tonsillitis, etc.)

To social factors   -   such as raising only one of the parents or the constant employment of parents (long business trips, constant workload), alcoholism of one of the family members: mother, father, less often - uncle, aunt. Bad temper or mental illness of any of the close relatives, rough treatment of the child by such relatives.

Drug addiction treatment in Dnipro

In 1930, the 12 Steps program was developed in the USA, which is successfully practiced around the world and is recognized as one of the most effective drug addiction treatment courses. With its help, it is possible not only to cure a person of addiction, but also to return to him the moral and ethical values ​​lost during the use, and to teach him to live a sober, full-fledged life without drugs.

In their work in the drug rehabilitation center for drug addicts in Dnipro "Transformation", it is the "12 steps" program that is used, thanks to which addicts change their worldview, re-master social skills, learn independence and responsibility. Such positive changes in the patient's personality help him to get rid of the need for stimulants. After completing the 12 Step drug rehabilitation course, there is a great chance that the addict will never return to drugs.

You can find out more about the program following this link .

Step one

Acknowledging Our Powerlessness: The first step in the program for the addict is to admit that he is no longer in control of his own life. Understanding that we cannot save our lives on our own is the first step to our recovery.

Step two

In his struggle with the disease, the patient can enlist the help of God, such as he sees him.

Step three

The patient learns to trust the power that leads him to recovery; he completely delegates control of his life to this power.

Step four

The stage of careful introspection: the patient reveals his hidden fears and negative experiences to the group in order to understand the root cause of the development of the disease.

Step five

The patient accepts himself and his negative experience; he admits his mistakes not only to himself, but also to his loved ones and to God leading him.

Step six

The patient prepares for active actions aimed at getting rid of the disease. He understands that alcohol or drugs is not the cause of addiction. The reason lies in himself. You can defeat addiction only by changing yourself.

Step seven

Based on the experience of other members of the group, patients begin to correct their own behavioral patterns, correcting their shortcomings.

Step eight

The patient makes a list of the people he has harmed during his illness and prepares himself to apologize for the pain and make amends.

Step nine

The patient apologizes and compensates for the damage to all people offended by him. Thus, he gets rid of remorse and forgives himself.

Step ten

The patient develops the habit of constantly analyzing his actions and immediately admitting his mistakes. This is learning self-control and responsibility for his life

Step eleven

The patient continues his path of reflection. This allows him to develop the spiritual essence of the addict, his moral sphere.

Step twelve

The patient uses the knowledge gained during the course to help himself and other victims of addiction. He uses these skills in all areas of his life, thus achieving inner harmony and happiness.

The rehabilitation center for drug addicts "Transformation" (Dnipro) provides drug addiction treatment based on the above program. The main principles of our work are anonymity and confidentiality. In some cases, they resort to compulsory treatment (it is possible to provide assistance at home). The program consists of four stages:

  • Drug therapy.
  • Rehabilitation course.
  • Resocialization.
  • Accompanying graduates (groups AA and AN).

The purpose of the first stage is detoxification - cleansing the body, as well as stopping withdrawal disorders. In addition, additional measures may be required, depending on the patient's health status.

A rehabilitation course is, first of all, psychological assistance. Our patients participate in activities with psychotherapists, take classes in art therapy, spiritual and moral development, go in for sports.

Resocialization is an important program step that helps our patients learn to live in a drug-free society. Former drug addicts attend special sports and therapeutic motivational camps, where they have the opportunity to communicate with those who have gone from a drug addict to a full-fledged member of society, with artists, athletes.

How to convince a drug addict to be treated?

The drug instantly destroys the mind of the addict, changes his behavior and worldview. That is why it is so difficult for relatives to reach him, offer help and persuade him to go for treatment.

In many ways, the inability to find contact with a drug addict is a consequence of errors in the behavior of the relatives themselves. Working with psychologists of our center for drug addicts in Dnipro, you can reconsider your relationship with an addict, master effective behavioral patterns.

Thanks to group sessions at the center, relatives of drug addicts learn to avoid conflicts, create and maintain an atmosphere of understanding and trust in the home. Thus, by changing yourself, you will have a positive effect on your addicted relative, which will further convince him to accept the help of specialists.

Most importantly, relatives must realize that they cannot in any way influence the decisions and actions of their loved ones. Understanding their powerlessness in the fight against addiction is an important factor in the work of relatives with the specialists of the center.

Goals of the Narcological Rehabilitation Center   "Transformation"

The Transformation Center for Rehabilitation of Drug Addicts sets itself the following goals:

  • help addicts achieve lasting remission (complete abstinence from drug use, alcohol and gambling);
  • help addicts to form a new lifestyle, in which there will be no place for drugs, alcohol, gambling;
  • improve mental and physical health;
  • improve family and community relations;
  • help to realize their responsibility to society;
  • prevent illegal actions.

The above goals are helped to achieve the "12 steps" program, within which the following actions are carried out:

  • the addict receives comprehensive information about the harmful effects of addiction to the use of psychoactive substances;
  • group and individual sessions with psychologists;
  • creative and educational group work;
  • help of a psychotherapist or psychiatrist;
  • implementation of the program implies mandatory participation in general meetings of Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous;
  • the development of the program takes place with the participation of friends, relatives and other close dependent people.

Causes of drug addiction

Physically weak, mentally unbalanced people are most often subject to drug addiction. Despite a possible genetic predisposition to drug use, the main reasons for the first acquaintance with psychoactive substances are: the influence of the environment, an attempt to protest the outside world, copying the lifestyle of "authoritative" people for addicted people. Young people are most susceptible to drug addiction, and they are forced to take this self-destructive path:

  • desire to experience new sensations, to become "your own" in the company;
  • stress;
  • desire to have fun;
  • an attempt to challenge society;
  • social problems.

Addiction to drug addiction among the older generation is very often the result of self-medication, which is resorted to for the following reasons:

  • mental disorders due to stress, strong emotional experiences;
  • for pain relief;
  • to relieve physical suffering in serious illness.

Based on the above, we can conclude that young people most often start using drugs to satisfy curiosity, and adults try to use them to achieve calmness, to forget.

Symptoms of drug use

The symptoms of drug addiction vary depending on the type and experience of drug use. If the period of use of psychoactive substances does not exceed six months, physical signs are not clearly expressed - in this case, mental dependence prevails. In order to identify an addiction to drug use, it is necessary to observe a person's behavior. In between sessions, such people are prone to neuroses, very often they are overly irritable. The addict himself can blame them on stress, fatigue, so it can be difficult to determine drug addiction in the early stages.

If the period of drug use exceeds six months, the addict develops the first physical symptoms that appear in the form of withdrawal symptoms. This is a strong painful sensation between taking drugs, which the sick person tries to hide. This stage of the development of the disease is more dangerous, since from now on taking the next dose is not just an unconscious habit, but also a need.

The next stage is chronic. At this stage, it becomes impossible to hide and endure pain, therefore it is at such moments that they most often turn to us for help. It is no longer possible to hesitate with treatment, because sooner or later physical dependence leads to an overdose and death of the addict.

Starting drug addiction treatment

Treatment of drug addiction is a long and complex process that will require great efforts not only from the patient himself, but also from those close to him. To live a fulfilling life tomorrow, you should start treatment today.

Not every addict is able to independently decide on a course of treatment. In most cases, he will need psychological help (motivation for treatment), which can only be provided by an experienced psychologist. The consequences of drug use are extremely negative, so drug treatment should be provided as early as possible, and starting treatment is the most difficult step for a sick person.

How to persuade a person to need treatment?

In conversations with an addict, you will have to face constant denial. First, it concerns the very fact of drug use, then the patient denies that he is addicted, and finally, he denies the effectiveness of drug addiction treatment in a drug addiction rehabilitation center. In this case, the following steps should be taken:

  • The addict should be talked to and should be done by the person he trusts.
  • A drug addiction center, where the cost of treatment and other factors will completely suit you, should be selected in advance, so that after receiving the patient's consent, you can immediately apply for a rehabilitation course.
  • Every effort should be made to obtain the informed consent of the addict. Do not forget to mention that it is possible to treat drug addiction anonymously and only the closest people will know about the place of his stay.
  • If your dialogue with the patient does not bring the desired result, you should seek help from the psychologists of the Transformation Center, who are always ready to provide emergency drug treatment (voluntary-compulsory motivation).

Psychological treatment for drug addiction

Drug addiction is, first of all, a mental addiction, therefore, without the participation of psychologists, there can be no effective rehabilitation. Narcological rehabilitation center "Transformation" offers complex treatment and its first stage is to cleanse the body from the decay products of narcotic substances. After detoxification, the addict becomes much easier, but this is not enough.

The Rehabilitation Center "Transformation" uses a well-planned psychotherapeutic course for treatment, consisting of group and individual sessions with psychologists, educational programs, activities aimed at spiritual revival and creative development of the individual.

After getting rid of withdrawal symptoms, a person remains psychological dependence on drugs, formed for certain reasons, which should be established and carried out the necessary psychocorrection. Therefore, even after completing the full course of treatment, addicts should remain in the field of vision of specialists in order to avoid relapses. An equally important condition is the participation of loved ones, who must make every effort to protect the addict from an unfavorable social environment, create all conditions for his healing.

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.
