Rehabilitation of personality

Rehabilitation or the restoration of the patient's personality takes a certain period, the same time one needs for the treatment in our center and stay with codependent accompanying relatives.

Rehabilitation is also a set of measures that impact on the patient's personality and behavior, including the influence of doctors and nurses working as a unified team for the sake of your mental and physical health.

Psychological correction also applies to family, sexual relations. Much attention is paid to psychocorrectional work with the parents and relatives of our patients; sometimes they need professional help no less than their addicted close ones. This work is a part of the complex general course of therapy. Our experience has shown that there are no trifles in the rehabilitation process, everything is taken into account, because our task is to prepare our patients for their future addiction free life: for work, for family responsibilities, for mature decisions and responsibility for their actions. Essentially the rehab determines the future of the patient - "live here as you will live at home!".

The elimination of physical addiction

The elimination of physical addiction occurs through a series of detoxification activities: forced diuresis, hemosorbtion, enterosorption, plasmapheresis, the introduction of opiate receptor blockers (ganglionic blockers, tranquilizers, antidepressants, antipsychotics, where necessary, piracetam, etc.). This period usually lasts 3 to 5 days, sometimes a little longer.

The basic principles of the Rehabilitation Center of Dr. Vasylenko

One of the main principles of drug rehabilitation center Vasylenko (Zaporozhye) is conscious, self-taken decision to overcome the disease. However, it is obvious that such a desire may be transient.  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.
