The ability to interact with others helps each of us to find our place in society, to develop, to form an adequate perception of this world and our own “I”. A person who has become a hostage of addiction gradually loses communication skills, ceases to associate himself with others, which leads to the degradation of his personality. The full course of drug addiction treatment and alcoholism should be carried out taking into account resocialization: a set of measures that allow people to return to normal life and regain lost social skills.
The process of re-socialization in our rehabilitation center
Our rehabilitation therapists have many years of experience working with people who are victims of chemical and behavioral addictions. These people have lost social skills, and their behavioral patterns developed over the years of illness prevent them from developing and enjoying life.
The goals of our re-socialization work include:
- destruction of inappropriate algorithms of behavior: aggressiveness, conflict, isolation – all this prevents the patient from adapting to a normal life;
- training in introspection and self-control;
- the formation of new social skills;
- working with relatives of addicts, revising and correcting their behavioral patterns.
Thanks to such work, at the end of the course, a person returns to a family where an atmosphere of understanding, trust and peace reigns. His own ability to interact with the world around him protects him from the temptation to return to his old life.

Asociality as a reason for frustration
Why do we consider resocialization a necessary step in the treatment of addiction? This job allows an alcoholic or drug addict to keep from breaking down.
During the illness, the addict is completely cut off from society. His social circle consists of the same sick people, whose only purpose is to find and use a new portion of the stimulant. Once in a rehabilitation center, he is also isolated from the real world. Here he is surrounded by friendly psychologists, as well as people going through the same crisis stages as him.
What happens after the end of the course? A person finds himself in the real world, where there is a place of injustice, rudeness, where not everyone agrees to meet him halfway. It will be extremely difficult for an unadapted person to accept such drastic changes in his life.
There is a high risk that, fleeing stress, he will again find refuge in drugs or alcohol. That is why it is so important to teach the patient to cope with their emotions and adequately respond to the actions of others. The ability to find a common language with any person will allow the addict to expand his circle of acquaintances, find a job and develop successfully without breaking away from society. This lifestyle will guarantee the final victory over addiction.
12-step treatment process
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.
In his struggle with the disease, the patient can enlist the help of God, such as he sees him.
The patient learns to trust the power that leads him to recovery; he completely delegates control of his life to this power.
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.
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.
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.
Based on the experience of other members of the group, patients begin to correct their own behavioral patterns, correcting their shortcomings.
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.
The patient apologizes and compensates for the damage to all people offended by him. Thus, he gets rid of remorse and forgives himself.
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
The patient continues his path of reflection. This allows him to develop the spiritual essence of the addict, his moral sphere.
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.
