Overcome yourself

Overcome yourself

Only a desperate desire to live makes a person to make the only right step and returns it to the living.


This story is no different from many stories of young people who were not able to overcome the difficulties of routine life and decided to escape from problems with the help of drugs into the world of illusions, fear and pain.

While reading or hearing about drugs and drug abuse most of us do not accept a single thought that it can happen to us or our family. Andrew grew up in a family of teachers. Having a happy family, going to school, doing sports – nothing of this promised that he could become an addict. And who would have thought that a good person, an athlete that traveled about the entire Soviet Union since he was 15, suddenly could become an addict. At first everything seemed like a joke, but at some point he realized – there is no way back. Ten years of drug abuse put him on the brink, he thought then: “Whether you overcome yourself, or die”. At the time of those terrible days Andrew's wife took him to see Dr. Vitaly Vasylenko, who told him: "If you really want to get rid of this stuff, I'll help you. But if not, there is nothing and no one, who can help, you can just go and die, there is not much to wait." Andrew chose life.

  • To kill the insatiable beast

    The best proofs of the positive effect of the method of stress-shock therapy are the reviews of the patients, who have returned to life once and for all.

    You can tell about the unique method of treatment of drug abuse for a thousand times, but the patients, who had already been treated in other clinics, will hardly believe. They need proofs, real stories of cured patients.

    Dr. Vitaly Vasylenko has enough of such stories for many hours of telling, but instead of listening you can go and ask the patients: how they feel, if the treatment helps them or not. After a few minutes of conversation it becomes clear that all the stories are real: patients are afraid of their doctor, but trust him unconditionally and wait for every session with impatience and hope: "I went through a lot of clinics, including a very well-known one, but only after the psychotherapy of Vitaly Vasilenko, for the first time I felt that the drug is finally gone out of my head, out of the consciousness and subconsciousness..."
