Review about the treatment in the center


35 years old

Crimea, Dzhankoy

- Hello, my name is Dima. I came from the Crimea. At  the age of sixteen, I tried an amphetamine and a heroin. Since that time I couldn’t stop. I tried to recover and visited different clinics, but there was no sense.  I was in Genichesk in the center "Salvation". I looked for salvation in God, but there was only disappointing. I don’t advice anyone that institution. Later I found information about the center of Dr. Vasilenko on the Internet. I came here and people treated me as an ill person (not as a drug addict). I got a high level of help.

- Dima, could you please tell me, what were the feelings when you came here?

- I went with the hope, that I will get help here. I had a desire to quit. If you don’t want to quit then this treatment will be useless. The most important thing – it is your personal desire to get off the drugs, because with drugs there is no life, only death. When I came here, I had a very deep depression, which devoured me from the inside. Gradually, thanks to doctors and the entire staff, I’ve got better. I realized that I could live without drugs. There are so much interesting things around me. Seventeen years of my life passed like one day. Because of drug use, I couldn’t create a family, as because of long-term use of amphetamine and all sorts of different drugs...but I believe in good, I hope that after this treatment I will have a family.

- What changes did you get here? How long have you been here? For four weeks?

- For 6 weeks.

- Did you get any changes here?

- Of course. You know, when you are using drugs some feelings, such as love, compassion, are disappearing. I didn’t feel  sorrow,  shame, I was so selfish. I didn’t sorrow for my parents, wife and other people… I didn’t consider them as people. During  four weeks I have been waking up. For the first time, on the sessions I was crying. My parents and wife didn’t know about my addiction, but I think they felt that something was wrong with me. Thanks to the sessions I am back in my life, I can smile and communicate with people. Before this, I was self-contained.

- How have your relationship with wife changed?

- I have  her confidence again. Before this, I was constantly lying. Now she sees a sober man. When I’m sober I’m a different person. I pay attention to my wife and parents. I’m alive, but before I was in a dream.

- Dima, you are leaving this center. Could you please tell me, what is your opinion about the drugs?

- It is negative. Now I have only a negative reference. I don’t remember a high condition. Thanks to the shock therapy, I don’t have memories about drugs. Nevertheless, it is very simple to think, live and get pleasure without it. Before I had only waked up and thoughts about one thing – where I need to find the dose, money and etc.. Because of this I lost everything – I had my car crashed ; I quarreled with my parents, I had a problem with police. To cut the long story short, I had only devastation and negative. I have  lived like this for seventeen years.

- Dima, could you please describe your feelings before you go home?

- I have a minor uneasiness. A sober life is much more different. First, I have to find a job, because I need to be busy. I need to make  money and support my family. Yes, I have  uneasiness, but it is an agreeable uneasiness. I don’t have a fear of withdrawal and depression. I had a very difficult depression; I even didn’t want to live. I had suicidal moment; I had thoughts that I was lonely and no one needed me; I didn't have any friends; I had only disappointment. Now I have goals and interest in life. I want to travel; I want myself and my loved ones to be happy.

- Dima, you are leaving this place, but before you go, what would you tell to other people who start the treatment?

- People, the main thing is  patience and desire to quit with drugs. Quit it, because there is no life with drugs – only fear and hell. If you want to live in paradise, then you should be strong and keep off all the thoughts about the drugs. It is possible and necessary to live without drugs. The essential points are patience and your desire to quit. Good luck to you!

    I’m the one of those mothers who have gone through the most terrible tragedy - the junkie son. I have lost hope of recovery and got only emptiness, sadness and longing because of despair. Nevertheless, who believes and wants to pull out own child from the deep pool of drug, will find a way out from the difficult situation. In our case, we saw that way, when read an article “Drug addiction is curable” in the “Komsomolka” newspaper. Immediately we went to the Zaporizhzhya city, hospital №1, to the Dr. Vasilenko, who was mentioned in that article.

    My name is Ivan Ivanovich, I was addicted to drugs one and a half year ago. I was treated in many institutions, but nothing could help me. I found out about this unique method from a friend of mine, he underwent the treatment by Vitaliy Ivanovich. I immediately called to the center. My wife and I arrived to the institution and I was struck by the attitude of medical staff, they were like sisters, and I got so much sympathy to my illness. I believe that addiction is a disease, but only here I convinced that it could be cured. Thanks to Vitaliy Ivanovich I lost carving and I don’t want to hear anything about drugs and alcohol.

    With gratitude. I would like to mention a few points, such as strong energy which is emanating from Vitaliy Ivanovich - it is initially gives a confidence and disposes for a positive result; the harmonious work of the entire staff - in my opinion, is a very important moment, as your own attitude. It looks like I get back to the state when I don’t know what the drug is, but at the same time I clearly have an understanding that it is evil. It gives the confidence and makes me think positively. Conclusion: I’ve got a REAL result. Thank you. Maksim.

    My name is Sergey. I came to the clinic of Dr. Vasilenko with the aim to stop using drugs. I was in a bad condition. I thought I fell to the bottom. I had disgust for drugs, but I continued to use at home, because I was afraid of physical withdrawal. I couldn’t solve any common deals without drugs, I was ashamed to look into people's eyes, I had lots of other complexes. The main thing is that I treated badly to my mother, I realized it only here. The first week was hard, in a moral and in a physical ways, but it was easier than it was at home.
