1. Diagnostic

Diagnostics is the first and very important stage in a process of recovery. The purpose of diagnostics is to assess physical and mental condition of the patient, to evaluate the extent of addiction, to identify the presence of short and long term effects of drug abuse, as well, to define the degree of motivation, criticism and preservation of volitional mechanisms.

The standard diagnostic screening at our clinic includes:

- hepatitis and HIV tests

- biochemical blood test  

- urine tests

 

In case of serious aberrations in laboratory tests and/or in case of the presence of the risk factors, we additionally invite specialists from other medical centers to take part in diagnostics and treatment progress. On the basis of our clinic or by the contract with our partner clinics  we  provide MRI, EEG, ultrasound, x-rays, endoscopy research, as well as we seek for complementary consultation of cardiologists, neurologists, endocrinologists and other specialists. We also provide some specific laboratory tests for drug detection in blood, urine and other bodily fluids. 
 

After completing the diagnostic, results are discussed in the team of doctors where they determine strategy and plan of treatment.

2. Detoxification

Detoxification is carried out in the first couple of days. Withdrawal symptoms are eliminated whilebenzodiazepines detoxification  patient body is getting clean from the substance. Patients get infusions and pharmacotherapy (psychostabilisators) daily and their urine is continually tested for the presence of benzodiazepines until it becomes negative.Certain standards must be met regarding detoxification: Detoxification must be fast -  Patient should not feel any pain - Normal sleep and appetite should return - Patient's mood should be stable - Depression and anxieties should be removed

 

 

3. Evaluation of treatment results

When urine tests become negative and physical and psychological condition becomes stable, the patient is discharged with instructions (to his relatives as well) on further rehabilitation and resocialization. After successful 10 day treatment, the patient should consider the next stage of rehabilitation - neurometabolic changes as a separate program of regeneration of receptors destroyed by benzodiazepines.
