How does this happen?

The interventional procedure begins with the addict’s family. A conversation is held with the patient’s family, thanks to which psychologists learn the details of the relationship in the house and the life of the victim of addiction. This information further helps our specialists find an approach to the patient and motivate him for treatment.

When talking with relatives of the addict, psychologists explain to them how they should behave before the patient’s conversation with psychologists and after the intervention. This avoids conflicts, misunderstandings between family members and the breakdown of the addict.

An individual approach to each case, many years of work experience and special psychological techniques allow psychologists to influence the patient’s outlook, change his attitude towards life and addiction, and persuade them to accept the help of professionals. Without coercion and threats, the addict agrees to treatment.
