Thanks to the efforts of specialists, the support of the family and the motivation of the patient himself, the process of getting rid of addictions can be quite quick and easy. And at the same time, proper treatment should be carried out exclusively in a specialized clinic, with monitoring of the patient’s condition.

The Addiction Treatment Clinic uses proven treatment protocols in its practice, and our specialists are highly trained, have extensive experience, and modern equipment and advanced methods will effectively cope with any kind of addiction. With our help, unlike home treatment, it is possible to quickly respond to an emergency situation.

Stages of treatment

The first stage is the removal of withdrawal symptoms (detoxification of the body). Frequent use of alcoholic, narcotic, toxic substances leads to severe intoxication. In this case, it does not really matter whether you use alcohol, heroin, amphetamines, methadone, or any other drug. The result is still the same a huge amount of toxins affects human organs, causing a malfunction of the whole organism, leading to serious consequences.

Detoxification methods are varied, it all depends on the degree of poisoning and the condition of the patient. But the goal of such a procedure is always the same cleansing the body, reducing harm to internal organs, the nervous system, removing possible complications and the “withdrawal syndrome”.

Detoxification from drugs or alcohol necessarily includes medication effects:

  • Saline solutions (droppers).
  • Drugs that restore the work of the internal organs of the patient.
  • Medical means that reduce mental stress.
  • Sleeping pills.
  • Antiarrhythmic and antihypertensive drugs.

An obligatory condition during the detoxification procedure is constant medical supervision (from 5 to 15 days). A course of efferent and infusion therapy is also carried out, vitamins are given, and if necessary, apparatus treatment is used.

The main tasks of detoxification

Detoxification is necessary to return the patient’s body to a normal, natural state. It provides:

  • Getting rid of toxins.
  • Improving the well-being of the patient.
  • Strengthens human immunity.
  • Promotes the activation of metabolism and the proper functioning of the digestive system.
  • Allows you to relieve mental stress, promotes withdrawal from depression.
  • Significantly improves the central nervous system.
  • It is the prevention of chronic diseases.

The period of detoxification of the body differs when withdrawing from alcohol or drug addiction, and the general physical condition of the patient and the degree of damage to internal organs also affect the number of days in the hospital.

At the moment, the terms of treatment in our clinic are as follows:

  1. Heroin, cocaine addiction – from 7 to 15 days.
  2. The use of synthetic drugs – from 5 to 7 days.
  3. Methadone dependence – from 10 to 20 days.
  4. Alcoholism – from 7 to 15 days.

Second phase

After detoxification of the body, when the patient’s physical and mental state is at a sufficiently high level, the second stage of treatment begins – motivation for rehabilitation.

Removal of the withdrawal syndrome is only the removal of the consequences. Urgent removal of a person from such a state does not guarantee his full recovery. Therefore, a full set of procedures is needed to finally solve the problem of dependence. Cleansing the body allows you to think soberly, to understand the need for further struggle with your disease.

Rehabilitation is the third and final stage in the process of returning to normal life. While in the Addiction Treatment Clinic, a variety of specialists work with the patient neurologists, psychologists, motivators, chemical addiction consultants. Every action, including a drug solution to a problem or a psychological impact, is aimed at helping the patient in the fight against the disease. And only an integrated approach, an independent decision to get rid of addiction and the support of loved ones will help solve the complex problem of drug addiction or alcoholism.
