Review about the treatment in the center


30 years old

Ukraine, Bucha, Kiev region

-    Good afternoon. Could you please, introduce yourself? Where are you from? Why are you here?
-    I’m from the city of Bucha, Kyiv region. I came here to get treatment of addiction - methadone and opiates.
-    How long have you used the drugs?
-    I have used the drugs for a long time. Since I was fifteen years old, I have started to sniff an amphetamine and tramadol. Five years ago, I  tried opiates. The last one and a half year I was on the system.
-    For how many years?
-    Well, I don’t know how to count. Since I was fifteen … I wouldn’t say that was an addiction, I realized it in this center.
-    Okay, how old are you?
-    I’m thirty years old.
-    Did you get treatment anywhere else?
-    Yes, I did. I was in psychiatry.
-    Psychiatry, drug and alcohol abuse?
-    Yes, it is.
-    Were there any results?
-    Not really. They removed a withdrawal; I have been there for one or two weeks.
-    It wasn’t effective. When did you discharge from our clinic?
-    Three months ago.
-    Three months it is a large term. Have you done anything during these months? Any progress?
-    Yes, I have managed. I didn’t like the job, and I changed it.  I started earning enough money. If things go like that, then everything will be fine.
-    Life unfolded in its entirety, didn’t it?
-    Yes, it is. I started to take what I want from life. When you look at life with sober eyes, it is simple to obtain.
-    Igor, could you please tell me, what is the reason of your visit? 
-    My wife died 6 days ago.
-    You got treated together, right?
-    Yes, we got treatment together.
-    Was she dependent too? For how long?
-    She had been using for two years.
-    Opiates?
-    Yes, and methadone.
-    If I’m not mistaken, she was coded from drugs and alcohol, and even made a provocation.
-    Yes.
-    What happened?
-    I don’t know what happened. Everything was fine.
-    Could you please describe that situation?
-    She was brought home and the person said that she had drunk too much. She breathed and I spoke to her. I thought that it could be an alcohol capsule. I thought, that wasn’t fatal and everything would be fine in the morning. I couldn’t imagine that she made an injection.
-    She was brought in some intoxicated condition. Moreover, you thought that it isn’t dangerous and deadly.
-    I thought that was because of alcohol. If I had known that she used drugs… I asked the person, who brought her: “Did she use drugs? She is coded. If she had made an injection, then it is necessary to take her to the hospital”. He said: «No, she didn’t. She just drank too much and fell asleep”.  I checked the pulse and her breath - everything was fine. She tried to answer my questions. She had signs of  a drunk person.
-    She acted like a drunk person.
-     Yes.
-    What happened then?
-    I fell asleep for an hour. When I woke up, she didn’t breathe. I tried to give a first aid, but nothing happened. There wasn’t a pulse.
-    Did you call an ambulance?
-    Yes, I did. I immediately called the ambulance. However,… I saw opened pupils… That a sad outcome.
-    I mean that would be a sad outcome if she didn’t use the drugs. It would be sad.
-    We can only guess what the reason was.
-    In the morning, I saw the punctures on her hands.
-    Therefore, she made the injection with drugs.
-    Yes.
-    Could you please tell me, you have an experience and can compare. You have visited different centers and drug treatment services. What is the difference between our center and others?
-    People could be treated and get rid of dependence and desire to use drugs. At the same time, I got rid of alcohol usage.
-    Do you mean that the reason is in a result?
-    Of course.
-    Igor, I have the last question for you. What would you like to say to the people who will be watching this video?
-    Stop using the drugs and love your life. I think, the main thing is to love your own life, and then everything will be great.

    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.
