The basic principles of our Center

One of the basic principles of psychotherapeutic drug abuse treatment center of Dr. Vasylenko (Zaporozhye) is a conscious self-adopted decision of the addict person to overcome the disease. However, it is obvious that such a desire can be transitory. It is mostly expressed during the intoxication period, but decreases or disappears at the height of the withdrawal syndrome. In this case, abstinence becomes an obstacle to active psychotherapeutic treatment and establishment of a productive contact between the doctor and the patient. Categorical parental restrictions or incentive promises (financial or employment) to go for a treatment can provide difficulties in a positive outlook of the very treatment. As a rule, such motives are originally revealed in the course of group or individual psychotherapy.

Some patients manifest panic fear of physical dependence, especially of sleeping disorders and muscle aches. All the decisions and conclusions are quickly minimized due to the formed stereotype to obtain instant relief by using psychoactive substances. During this period the patient is prone to search for a "drug" by all means. Especially dangerous are the patients who use methadone, because the peak of withdrawal syndrome falls on the 7th-10th day of the treatment.


Essence of the new method of drug addiction treatment

Why us?


Our rehabilitation center exists for more than 18 years.


These are 18 years of experience, developed techniques, communication with patients and their families.


Our center is a team of like-minded professionals with two main axioms:






Historically, the creation of a new method of treatment was preceded by addictions and substance abuse study in terms of their prevalence and fundamental differences or similarities with multiple forms of mental disorders in general (especially with personality disorders, hidden and obvious depressive states, border and psychosomatic disorders). All the researches became the basis of complex method, which is now successfully used in the practice of Dr. Vasylenko and his team of specialists that were selected on the basis of this treatment method.

Fundamentally new approach to the problem of treatment is the task of complete addiction liquidation in the patient's mind, the liquidation of ANY attraction to drugs, regardless of their specific type (opium, cocaine, hashish, ephedrine, etc.).

Dr. Vasylenko introduced complex methods of medical and psychological impact on the patients, due to which the patient's mind creates a kind of "reflexive image" of his individual form of drug addiction (a kind of "psychic energу block"), and after the withdrawal is removed, the patients undergo super stress inclusive hypnosis that creates a life term ban to use any form of drugs in the patients’ minds.

Psychological encoding is not just a single act, it includes a number of psychological treatments - authoritarian hypnosis with the formation of dominant aggression, pain and fear towards any drug in the patients mind, anticipation or even experience of death due to drug abuse, psychoanalysis, psycho training, psycho-correction (individual and group), with the use of psychotropic medicines, antidepressants, tranquilizers, acupuncture, electroconvulsive therapy, laser therapy, including laser blood cleaning (extra-and intro-corporal) hemosorption and plasmapheresis, massage, manual therapy and physiotherapy.

Medication coding at the final stage of treatment is provided by the injection of a specially prepared polyvalent serum with the next testing of its effectiveness by provocation of the possible deadly result from the use of a small dose of a drug. This method enshrines the fear of death from the slightest dose of drug in the patient’s mind. Medication coding is performed in various periods that depend on the readiness of the patient's body (liver function tests, ECG, EEG, etc.), in the range of 3 to 6 years.
