Opiates have been known to mankind for a long time. They are used as sedatives and anesthetics. But, due to complications and rapid addiction, this group of drugs has been classified as hard drugs, and their use in medicine is under strict indications and control.
Our center successfully and promptly provides the treatment of opioid addiction of various stages and methods of use.
Opioid addiction: what is it?
Opiates are a group of narcotic substances of plant (opium), semi-synthetic (heroin), and synthetic (methadone) origin, acting on the opioid receptors of the central nervous system (CNS) and the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) of the human body.
Opiates have strong analgesic and sedative effects on the body, inhibiting respiratory and intestinal functions.
Opioid addiction develops quickly enough, and in the case of heroin – instantly.
Ways of drug use
Drugs are used in several ways:
- intravenously (carries special risks of infection with concomitant diseases: hepatitis, HIV, AIDS).
- inhaling smoke (by smoking);
- inhaling powdered drug fractions.

Consequences of opioid addiction
Drugs destroy the body by acting on organs and systems, sometimes irreversiblly:
- respiratory dysfunction;
- digestive dysfunction;
- cardiovascular disorders;
- mental disorders;
- concomitant diseases.
We would like to note the particular danger of opioid withdrawal. These are physical and mental sensations that causes difficult and dangerous conditions of the body of the addict. Help during withdrawal symptoms should be provided as soon as possible. To remove physical sensations, the body requires higher doses each time, which can lead to an overdose, respiratory arrest, and the death of the addict.
Our center provides comprehensive, quick, professional, and individual treatment of opioid addiction.
The treatment starts with a consultation, examination, tests and imaging studies (if necessary).
After collecting all the data, the doctor prescribes the following courses of treatment:

- implants (with unique medicines that block the effect of the drug);
- psychotherapy as a special type of treatment at all other stages of therapy;
- rehabilitation therapy;
