Characteristic features: loss of control of behavior, conflicts in the close and distant circle of communication, material difficulties and as a result – theft, theft, debts.

The trouble at the state level
According to statistics for 2019, about a million drug addicts were recorded in Ukraine. Among them, almost 400,000 are injecting drugs. A report by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) indicates that 18% of adolescents in Ukraine have tried drugs (of which: 8.7% – marijuana, 9.2% – inhalers, 14.2% have tried 2 or more drugs). Moreover, the percentage of use by girls has increased 1.5 times over the past five years and amounted to 18.1%.
In Kiev and other large cities of Ukraine, over the past six months, the so-called online sales of drugs have increased by 40%. Thanks to various messengers and websites, the purchase became anonymous, and the payment became contactless. Analyzing the above, we consider an important advantage of our clinic to be its location and the compulsory treatment of drug addiction in a hospital.
