Alcoholism treatment in Zhitomir


Alcohol addiction is a serious condition that destroys life, mental and physical health of a person, injures his loved ones. And although most people associate craving for alcohol with promiscuity, alcoholism is a serious illness, during which the human personality is destroyed. Only a few can find the strength to fight alcohol addiction alone. Therefore, if an alcoholic has realized the severity of his condition, it is necessary to support him and try to convince him to undergo treatment for alcoholism in Zhitomir.

Why is alcoholism a disease and should be treated?

Chemical addiction paralyzes the patient's will, makes it virtually impossible to resist the temptation to drink. Female alcoholism takes especially severe forms, because:

  •   Alcohol dependence develops much faster in women than in men.
  •   The female body copes worse with the elimination of alcohol due to the peculiarities of enzymes.
  •   An alcohol-addicted woman becomes a real outcast of society, so it is more difficult to treat.

Otherwise, excessive drinking is harmful to both sexes. Alcohol addiction impairs memory, cognitive abilities, and causes sudden mood swings. Also, alcohol negatively affects the state of the cardiovascular system, liver, kidneys. The patient's appearance deteriorates significantly, the process of premature aging begins, especially clearly it appears on the skin. Help is needed?

Why alcoholism is so bad: 3 stages

When to start alcoholism treatment in Zhitomir? Ideally, the sooner the better. The main problem is that at an early stage, the patient himself and his relatives rarely recognize the addiction and turn to a specialist for help. At first, alcoholism seems like a desire to have fun, to unwind, and an alcoholic seems to be the soul of the company and a cheerful person.

In the first stage of addiction, alcohol is consistently associated with pleasure. While drinking, a person relaxes, is distracted from sad and anxious thoughts, and enjoys life. He starts drinking rather large doses of alcohol almost every day. The main symptom of the disease is mental dependence on alcohol. But most people believe they can stop at any time, and do not consider drinking a serious problem. Also an alarming symptom is the loss of the protective gag reflex.

The second stage is characterized by the appearance of a plateau of tolerance and a hangover syndrome:

  • Plateau of tolerance - an increase in the dose of alcohol, after which intoxication occurs.
  • A hangover is an uncontrollable desire to get drunk, accompanied by weakness, nausea, restless sleep, and poor health.

The third stage is associated with increased personality degradation, loss of life guidelines. The person begins to drink heavily or constantly. His problems are becoming more obvious to those around him. Due to the inability of the body to perceive large doses of alcohol, the alcoholic drinks in small doses, but constantly.

Treatment of alcoholism in Zhytomyr: goals and basic principles

To get rid of alcoholism, the patient must himself want to be cured. As a rule, the awareness of addiction does not come immediately, most often - at the second or third stage of the disease. Experienced psychologists and narcologists work in the transformation rehabilitation center who will draw up an individual treatment program and help the alcoholic return to normal life.

Three basic aspects of successful treatment:

  •   Voluntary decision of the patient himself to end alcohol dependence.
  •   Correctly selected treatment regimen, taking into account the patient's psychosomatic diseases, provoking factors, forms of alcoholism and drinking experience.
  •   Support for family and friends.

Treatment of alcohol addiction in Zhitomir is aimed at achieving the following goals:

  •   Formation of moral values, attitudes, life goals that prevent the return to addiction.
  •   Return to work and school.
  •   Normalization of relations with family members.
  •   Understanding the root causes of addiction, awareness of the harmfulness of this lifestyle.

Individual and group work with a psychologist, art therapy, meetings with people who have undergone rehabilitation and overcome alcoholism help our patients well. Do not try to cure a loved one from alcohol addiction on your own - this way you can only push him to further degradation. The best way to help is to contact specialists with extensive experience in the rehabilitation of alcoholics.

The 12 Steps - An Effective Alcohol Addiction Treatment Program

To get rid of alcoholism in "Transformation" the program "12 steps" or the Minnesota model is used. It is non-drug and is aimed at the psycho-social rehabilitation of the patient. If a person successfully completes the program, he will stop drinking alcoholic beverages and will again become a full-fledged member of society.

During rehabilitation, the following actions are carried out with each patient:

  •   Informing about the negative consequences of alcohol consumption.
  •   Group and individual meetings with a psychologist.
  •   Art therapy sessions.
  •   Independent work on the Minnesota model.

Key messages of the "12 steps":

  •   Addiction is not the patient's fault, but a consequence of spiritual dissatisfaction.
  •   To get rid of alcoholism, you need to understand the problem and seek help from other people.
  •   Recovery is possible when a person himself wants to live a normal life, sets the right goals and achieves them.
  •   Constant introspection, compensation for moral damage to loved ones, harmony with oneself are the best ways to get rid of alcoholism.

Craving for strong drinks is not a sentence at any stage of the disease. The main thing is to lend a helping hand to your loved one and convince him to undergo a rehabilitation course.

The course is divided into three stages:

  •   Drug treatment. At this stage, the doctor develops an individual program for cleansing the body. Further treatment involves the relief of various withdrawal disorders, relief of the patient's mental state.
  •   Rehabilitation. This is the main and most difficult part of the rehabilitation program. It is during the rehabilitation period that a real transformation takes place - the program participant works on himself, changes the deep-rooted wrong worldview and learns to live anew and cope with difficulties without additional stimulation. She works with psychologists and psychotherapists, attends classes on spiritual and moral development, goes in for sports, gets involved in art and acquires new goals in life.
  •   Resocialization. After the main stage of the program, which lasts up to 6 months, addicts have the opportunity to return to their usual social environment, to find a job they like. At this stage, addicts are still under the constant supervision of psychologists and rehabilitation therapists. Former alcoholics attend sports and therapeutic motivational camps, which are held twice a year in summer and winter on the basis of the International Anti-Drug Association, where they maintain friendly relations with the same former and current program participants, receive encouragement and support from cultural figures, show business, athletes of Ukraine and are affirmed in the intention to lead a healthy lifestyle.

Step one

Acknowledging Our Powerlessness: The first step in the program for the addict is to admit that he is no longer in control of his own life. Understanding that we cannot save our lives on our own is the first step to our recovery.

Step two

In his struggle with the disease, the patient can enlist the help of God, such as he sees him.

Step three

The patient learns to trust the power that leads him to recovery; he completely delegates control of his life to this power.

Step four

The stage of careful introspection: the patient reveals his hidden fears and negative experiences to the group in order to understand the root cause of the development of the disease.

Step five

The patient accepts himself and his negative experience; he admits his mistakes not only to himself, but also to his loved ones and to God leading him.

Step six

The patient prepares for active actions aimed at getting rid of the disease. He understands that alcohol or drugs is not the cause of addiction. The reason lies in himself. You can defeat addiction only by changing yourself.

Step seven

Based on the experience of other members of the group, patients begin to correct their own behavioral patterns, correcting their shortcomings.

Step eight

The patient makes a list of the people he has harmed during his illness and prepares himself to apologize for the pain and make amends.

Step nine

The patient apologizes and compensates for the damage to all people offended by him. Thus, he gets rid of remorse and forgives himself.

Step ten

The patient develops the habit of constantly analyzing his actions and immediately admitting his mistakes. This is learning self-control and responsibility for his life

Step eleven

The patient continues his path of reflection. This allows him to develop the spiritual essence of the addict, his moral sphere.

Step twelve

The patient uses the knowledge gained during the course to help himself and other victims of addiction. He uses these skills in all areas of his life, thus achieving inner harmony and happiness.

Hello everyone. He started using drugs by injection at 15, alcohol and grass were even earlier. During the time of use, problems with the police, health and the loss of all relationships with people close to me became the norm.

I am from the Luhansk region, at the moment I have been in complete sobriety for 4 years. Before the rehabilitation center "Transformation" I did not even dream of the life I have now: my beloved wife, work, sober friends, wonderful relationships with relatives, etc. For 11 years I have been using alcohol and drugs, have lost the meaning of life and have tried all possible treatments that have not worked. I am grateful that the rehabilitation center "Transformation" provided me with qualified assistance and helped me to believe in myself.

My name is Aleksey. I am 30 years old and I am an addict. At the moment I am in stable remission thanks to the "Transformation" rehabilitation center for 5 years. I entered the program at the age of 25. I have been using drugs and alcohol since I was 12. From the age of 20 I realized that I had problems, and probably the most difficult time began when I unsuccessfully tried to quit, for 5 years there were many addiction treatments, it is difficult to say the exact number of exactly more than ten. There were fortune-tellers)) encodings, I left for other cities, got married, had children in the hope that it would settle me down, but everything only got worse, more and more people were suffering around me, and I myself was in a terrible state - desperate, embittered, lost every taste for life is a "man" (if I could already be called that). Yes, and I came here to the center without much enthusiasm, I did not believe that something could help me, I came for my loved ones. Completed a rehabilitation course. Now I am happy and clean, I want to shout about this to the whole world, so that every addict can find sobriety. And more recently I got married! I have a wonderful wife, we understand each other ... and this is just the beginning))) !!!!!

Hello everybody. I have been in trouble since 93 and have been using everything. The last seven years have been a dense heroin system. Nothing helped, neither detoxification, nor grandmothers, nor sorcerers. At the next detoxification in narcology, he met with an employee of the rehabilitation center "Transformation" Sergey Makarov and decided to undergo rehabilitation. I am very grateful to him and the entire organization of the city of Dnepropetrovsk, thanks to God and you, I have remained in sobriety for 3 years.

Hello friends! I want to share my story and tell you about how the "Transformation" rehabilitation center together with my parents helped me change my life !!!! On April 27, 2011, I arrived in Kiev at the center, after almost continuous 13-year use of drugs, alcohol, etc. I was exhausted, life lost all meaning, there was no desire to live like this ... But by some miracle I learned from my friend's mother about the rehabilitation center "Transformation" ... She told her parents, otherwise she said that I would die. no conditions or manipulations just the last 7 months, desomorphine, or the train is simply unbearable. A small child and a husband stopped, but I decided for the sake of my daughter, let her have at least one good mother. The husband also used and tried to send him to the center too, but he was convinced that he could quit himself and did not need anyone. We couldn't throw together. The first step has been taken. But it was not without falls .... On 4 months of rehabilitation, dad took me home, said that enough, you need to bring up my daughter. I arrived, but in less than a week I found myself back in this swamp. Husband, former friends, as if in a fog and everything spun with even greater force. It was very hard, I could not understand why ???? After all, there are guys who want to help and they do not understand in every possible way trying to leave, run away, by hook or by crook. But I wanted and I liked it at the center - the attitude, communication, unity, and the fact that no one uses, I thought that it was impossible to live like this and that "only the grave will fix the hunchback." The second time I went to Voronezh, to my region, went through rehabilitation until the end, went to school in Ukraine, and from there to St. Petersburg. During this time, she became a widow, almost deprived of parental rights, but a strong desire to be sober, it motivated to go forward. I stayed in St. Petersburg. Profile resocialization for girls was opened. Training in a fitness club is just a dream. She successfully underwent re-socialization, got a new interesting profession, which is very harmoniously combined with my healthy lifestyle - a circuit training instructor, and, at the same time, gained experience and the ability to communicate like a professional who knows his job perfectly. Later she became the head, together with the team of the fitness club, 38 graduates were released. Happy confident girls. In one of the therapy camps I met my husband. We built our relationship at a distance of 2000 kilometers. On July 19, 2014, the wedding took place. Now I am a happy wife and mother. A wonderful husband and a beautiful daughter - this is real female happiness !!!!! Many thanks to everyone who took part in my recovery. Thank you to your family for your support. Thank you to the rehabilitation center "Transformation" for a sober look into a new life !!!!!!!!

I have been using drugs for 15 years. I will not tell the story, because I am already very far from that life and I do not want to delve into it. When I got to the "Transformation" rehabilitation center, I changed so much that I can't find words to describe it. Here life stopped, I saw it, I saw myself in it, my mistakes, here the dirt that was in me was revealed, but I did not see it. During rehabilitation, I was given information about the disease of drug addiction. They gave keys that helped me change myself, change my thinking. I learned to dream, set goals, achieve them, develop myself. I saw my life from a completely different angle. I believed in myself, in my sober life, in happiness. I know that I will succeed ... I have a long and happy life ahead of me. Now I am going through IT-re-socialization ... I got the necessary knowledge on the repair and maintenance of PCs, local area networks, site building. In two weeks, I finish my studies and go to work. EVERYTHING IS A NEW SOLE LIFE. Good luck to all …. P.S. …. And EVERYTHING is also possible in this life. Thanks to the rehabilitation center "Transformation".

I don't like to think about it, but what happened was it!) I used drugs for 12 years, there were breaks, but I never stayed sober for a long time, from drugs to alcohol, from alcohol to drugs! During the period of use, I lost everything! She started using drugs at about 22 years old, it all started beautifully, easy and fun. At that time I studied at the institute, worked, had a friend with whom I lived in a "civil marriage", at that time I considered it the only form of living with a man, there could be no question of marriage, why do we need obligations, responsibility? The priority was mainly financial, earning money, walking, living for your own pleasure! The drug was at that time a simple entertainment! I came to my senses three years later, when I realized that I could not even get out of bed without using heroin! I tried to quit, it didn't work! I grew up without a father, with my stepfather and mother, my father lived in another city, was a successful businessman and always offered to go to him, work and continue my studies, this time I took advantage of the invitation, it was the illusion that I could escape from the drug. I will work with my dad in the office, study normally and forget about the use) of course this did not happen! Of course I found a thrill, I deceived my father for a long time, sometimes I worked, sometimes I didn't ... I met a drug addict like myself and without a twinge of conscience went to live with him, I even stopped seeing my father! After a year of recovery in the rehabilitation center "Transformation" I plucked up courage, I wanted to go to ask my dad for forgiveness and found out that he died even then, at the time when I exchanged Him for a drug! With my "civilian" husband, we stopped using for a long time, started again ... Until, during the next, so to speak, remission, he injected himself and drowned, but I, heartbroken, began to use again, believing that there was a reason! I returned to my city and again from drug to alcohol, from alcohol to drug, my mother found out that I was a drug addict, but she could not help me, she just did not know how! The last three years of my use have been a real nightmare !! I dropped out of college. I was already known everywhere: ordinary operatives who catch drug addicts at points, I became one of the regular customers, police officers, because I began to steal and get caught with stolen goods, the FSKN dreamed of putting me in jail faster ... From morning to evening I stole, sold, bought drugs! I went to narcology many times ... My next boyfriend left narcology before me and died of an overdose! The doctor didn't take me to addiction treatment anymore, she said it was useless! Mom put me in another clinic, she tried to help me to the last, thanks to her too, I'm alive now! The doctor suggested the Transformation rehabilitation center, said that there were results, she saw her patients sober and happy. I went to rehab, it was not easy! The first months I was constantly going home, it was hard to quit smoking and change values ​​and priorities: finances, high, selfishness. Today I am getting a second higher education, doing what I love, I have a permanent job that brings joy not only to me, but also to others people who have lost hope that their lives can change for the better! For the first time I officially got married, I love my husband, I took upon myself the responsibility to be a faithful and loving wife to one man for the rest of my life! Thanks to the spiritual and moral principles that are laid down for rehabilitation, long-term work with specialists on personal change, I have entered civil society with dignity and with great pleasure I live and work, I abide by the Law! I love my homeland and people! Thank God and the people who helped me understand what it means to live with dignity!
