Sergey Tykva

While working as a psychiatrist, Sergei Pavlovich was faced with the fact that drugs alone are not enough to improve the patient’s condition, he saw that sometimes a conversation with a patient brings a greater effect than drug therapy. This was the time when he asked himself the question: “What additional knowledge and skills could help my wards?” The answer came immediately – Psychotherapy. From 2002 to 2006, he studied at the School of Modern Psychotherapy of the Ukrainian Society of Psychotherapists in a client-centered direction. He considers the main achievement of this training that thanks to the training, he began to understand himself better, live in peace with his feelings and emotions, accept himself and those around him as they are. He continued to improve his knowledge and skills at the Crimean State Medical University, having received the specialization of a doctor-psychotherapist. In 2009 he got acquainted with such a direction of psychology as Socionics. This expanded his understanding of the psychological nature of man. From 2011 to the present, she has been studying at the School of Modern Psychotherapy of the Ukrainian Society of Psychotherapists in the direction of group psychoanalysis. Sergey Pavlovich has significant experience of working with clients both individually and in a group in such areas as addiction, relapse prevention, loss reaction, family psychotherapy. “It so happens that I believe in Psychotherapy. Seeing how the client is changing, how his personal growth is going on, his mental well-being improves, his resistance to the aggression of today’s world is increasing, I am more and more convinced of the correctness of the path I have chosen. ”

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 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.
