2. Detoxification

Depending on the results of diagnostics, an appropriate method of detoxification or a complex set of methods is chosen for each patient, in order to obtain the best results for each specific case.

It is applied when the diagnosis establishes that there are no contraindications for this type of detoxification. During the ultrafast detoxifying the patient is under anesthesia for 6-8 hours a day. Opiate antagonists, usually naloxone or naltrexone, are gradually introduced, releasing the receptors from opiates. The essence of ultra rapid detoxification is that patients should over most of the crisis symptoms when they sleep and feel no pain. When they wake up, the worst part of the crisis has already passed. Even if some minimal symptoms remain after waking up, their intensity is significantly reduced and they can be easily treated by means of traditional non-opioid analgesics. During the process of detoxification, the patient will undergo this procedure 2 or 3 times.  comparing with other detoxification practices. Ultra rapid detox has a high success rate and is the best method for patients addicted on opioids  for which physical withdrawall lasts no less then a month.

  • Information therapy is aimed at eliminating the desire for narcotics on a subconscious level. TheInformation therapy - anti drug craving treatment patient spends a couple of hours in a medically induced sleep under audio-visual stimulation coming from a computer, with the help of special headphones and glasses, which transmit high-frequency signals, because if the patient is conscious, we may encounter mental blocking (such as: "I am not an addict"; "I do not need that"; "That does not help me"; "It has no effect on me" etc). By applying these techniques, it is possible to handle the information, so as to improve the value and quality of perceptions. Information is divided into groups of short striking images on a subconscious level. The result of this therapy is the emergence of indifference and a negative attitude towards drugs.

Our habits depend on the neuronal pathways, through which electrochemical processes take place in the brain and the nervous system. Meditation creates many new neural pathways and psychic energy is distributed otherwise, leading to the closure of harmful neural pathways. Thus, the patient may easily quit smoking, consuming alcohol and drugs.

Transactional analysis is effective in solving problems such as phobias and dependence. It helps people to change, to become normal Children again, to strengthen their position as Parents, who are tired of fighting, to learn and solve their problems from the standpoint of Adults and to regain confidence in themselves and their forces.

  • Training s for the development of communicative skills - Patients in the group are trained for adaptive behavior.

Thoughts and memories of the narcotics, alcohol or other addictive substances disappear completely. The longing for drugs no longer exists.

Massage contributes to the detoxification process by accelerating blood circulation and lymph flow, accelerating thus the elimination process of toxic substances in the body. One session of physiotherapy is included in the price of the treatment package. The cost of each next session is 30 Euros per session.

5. Pharmacological protection - Naltrexone implant

Naltrexone implantAt the end of the treatment,  a pharmacological blockade will be carried out in the form of an implant (Naltrexone). The purpose of this procedure is to block the opiate receptors of the patient through the effect of Naltrexone. In that way, the patient will not achieve euphoria or similar sensations in case of using heroin, Tramal or methadone and therefore there will be no relapse and return to drugs. Naltrexone therapy is applied to patients, who have undergone detoxification from opiates. Our patients are advised to use the protection of implants for at least 12 months after release from hospital. A two-month Naltrexone implant or two depot injections per month are included in the price of this treatment.
