Drug addiction treatment is a complex and lengthy rehabilitation path to the full recovery and return of the drug addict to normal life. Only qualified narcology clinics and rehabilitation centers with professional psychotherapists, psychologists and narcologists can help get out of this state. Drug dependence occurs as a result of the use of psychoactive narcotic substances of artificial or natural origin. Today, chemical dependence appears as the most important social and medical problem of our time.
Every year the black market creates new fairly powerful and aggressive drugs are created that quickly destroy the body and soul of a person who uses these substances. Most often, teenagers are dependent on drugs, and instead of learning and building their careers, they spend their lives on taking and searching for strong psychotropic substances.
Drug addiction significantly reduces overall life expectancy, causing moral, intellectual and moral degradation. People who are addicted to drugs are constantly looking for money for a new dose, which leads to increased crime. The injection form of drug addiction is quite closely associated with the risk of the spread of dangerous infectious diseases.
The consequences of drug use
The main danger is that drug addiction has a cardinal personality change. The constant use of narcotic substances causes serious violations:
- A person cannot independently control his or her behavior;
- Sharp changes in the emotional state and mood;
- The person shows rudeness, harshness and aggression, completely forgetting about the principles of morality;
- False priorities arise, as a result of which a person, being in a state of hangover, is capable of committing serious crimes.
Diseases that occur in drug addicts
People who cannot imagine their life without drugs suffer:
- Disorders in the functioning of the cardiovascular system, which often lead to heart attacks and strokes;
- Hepatitis – a viral liver disease that cannot be completely cured;
- Impaired motor function.
After taking the next dose of drugs, there is a risk of falling into a coma, and the inflammatory process that forms in the veins with the injection can lead to sepsis and amputation of the limb.
As a result of the intake of psychotropic substances, mental and physical health is rapidly destroyed. Therefore, treatment of drug addiction should not be postponed, relying on the fact that a person will get rid of this addiction, because in this case you lose valuable time and endanger your loved ones.
Difficulties of self-treatment
It is very difficult to get rid of addiction on your own, and refusing to take the next dose leads not only to regular breakdowns, but often to respiratory arrest. Therefore, in order to get rid of addiction, it is necessary to undergo comprehensive drug treatment in a clinic, and even better in a rehabilitation center. Qualified specialists of a rehabilitation center are able to help every person with drug addiction and bring him or her back to life in society.
Before undergoing rehabilitation, an individual treatment program is made up for each patient, accompanied by psychological support from specialists. After a rehabilitation course, the human body gets rid of various toxins and narcotic substances. At the final stage of the rehabilitation course, the clinic conducts training activities, as a result of which a person successfully enters society and forever forgets about drug addiction.
Anonymous drug treatment in a rehabilitation center
Narcology clinics practice completely anonymous drug treatment. You can be completely sure that no one will know about your problem.
Rehabilitation centers set the following goals:
- provide support and assistance with drug addiction;
- help patients form a new lifestyle where there is no place for drugs;
- establish relations in society and family;
- help drug addicts realize their immediate responsibility to society.
Rehabilitation centers conduct treatment for drug addiction anonymously. They do not record patient contact information and do not transmit information to drug treatment clinics. An individual therapy program is developed for each patient, it includes communication with psychologists, a psychiatrist and a psychotherapist. The implementation of this program implies taking part in the general meetings of “anonymous addicts”, where a person will be able to chat with people who find themselves in the same difficult situation and fully realize the value of life. The program includes the participation of relatives, friends and loved ones.
Stages of addiction treatment
Rehabilitation centers treat drug addiction by applying a whole range of measures aimed at restoring the patient’s mental and physical health. Treatment takes place in 3 stages:
- Rehabilitation course;
Detoxification is carried out in order to cleanse the patient’s body of narcotic substances and the main products of their decay. At this stage, not only harmful toxic substances are eliminated from the body but also all natural functions responsible for self-cleaning and neutralization are stimulated.
Detoxification can last from several hours to 2 weeks. As a result of this process, the manifestation of withdrawal symptoms decreases and the person begins to feel much better.
The rehabilitation course involves the treatment of drug addicts using a number of physiotherapeutic procedures: massage, aromatherapy sessions, water procedures and reflexology. During the rehabilitation and recovery period, psychotherapists, psychologists and narcologists work with drug addicts. Particular attention in this period of therapy is given to activities aimed at the formation of new value systems, personality development, improvement of basic cognitive functions and the acquisition of responsibility for all your actions.
The main step in the treatment of drug addicts is the return of patients to a normal way of life. Highly qualified psychologists will help patients overcome the difficulties of adapting to the new conditions of their existence and will provide support in difficult times.
Every drug-dependent person can undergo an effective drug treatment. Rehabilitation clinics help people who find themselves in difficult life situations and return people to a normal life even in the most difficult cases.
