Therapy for addicts
We treat addiction to psychoactive substances (alcohol, drugs) as a chronic, progressive and fatal disease, which is caused by a number of factors. We consider it as a disease of involuntary. We treat with respect and understanding people who suffer from the disease and their loved ones.
In our center it is being implemented basic and deepened psychotherapeutic program aimed at people addicted to alcohol, drugs and gambling. The therapeutic program takes account of the so-called Minnesota model, uses the experiences of people in recovery basing on the philosophy of Alcoholics Anonymous Community and the 12-step program. It is the integration of various trends in psychotherapy. Most often we use cognitive- behavioral and humanistic approach, group process and concepts of personal schemes.
