The use of narcotic substances causes intoxication and the strongest physical addiction, while their discontinuation, in turn, leads to a painful condition, called ‘withdrawal’. Our specialists will help you to end this deadlock.

What is withdrawal syndrome

To figure it out, let us define it. Thus, withdrawal syndrome (cold turkey, cessation of a substance dependence) is a sharp physiological and mental deterioration of a drug addict in case of discontinuation of psychoactive substances. The used chemicals penetrate into the vital metabolic processes (metabolism) and, once withdrawn, the body responses to their lack as to a threatening condition, causing specific symptoms and malfunctions.

Withdrawal symptoms

Withdrawal syndrome may cause the following mental and physiological symptoms:

 

  • Hallucinations, anxiety;
  • Discoordination of movements, disbalance;
  • Dilated pupils;
  • Nausea, vomiting, gastrointestinal disturbances;
  • Depression / overexcitation;
  • Somatic joint / muscle pain;
  • Convulsions, tremors of the limbs;
  • Chills, sweating;
  • Failures of the heart rhythm;
  • Insomnia, obsessive thoughts.

 

 

In case you note any of the listed withdrawal symptoms, please do not hesitate to contact specialists. Severe withdrawal can cause cardiac arrest and death.

 


Urgent ELIMINATION OF DRUG WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS can save lives!

Methods we apply

Elimination of withdrawal symptoms (cold turkey) proceeds in several stages, in an integrated manner:

 

  • Detoxification: elimination of psychoactive substances from the patient’s blood.
  • Pain-relieving therapy: elimination of withdrawal symptoms with antispasmodics, anticonvulsants, pain relievers.
  • Sedation therapy: elimination of anxiety states with sedatives and psychotropic drugs (low dosage), psychotherapeutic motivational sessions.
  • Infusion therapy: restoration of the balance of essential vitamins and substances in the body by intravenous injections, support of internal organs with cardio- and hepatoprotectors.
  • Medically (pharmacologically) induced coma: a longer but safer method of relieving drug withdrawal during medication sleep of the patient, when all the necessary processes and functions are controlled by specialists.
  • Ultrarapid opioid detoxification (UROD) involves administration of opiate receptor blockers (naloxone, naltrexone) in the intensive care unit under anesthesia (1-3 days) under the supervision of an anesthesiologist. (Has contraindications).

Treatment of methadone withdrawal

Methadone withdrawal has its specifics and is harder and longer even than heroin one. It lasts up to 2 months and needs long-term cleansing and restorative therapy. After the acute phase of methadone withdrawal is relieved, the main stage follows: a rehabilitation therapy, which requires a simultaneous comprehensive approach.

 


Our doctors are highly-skilled and successfully experienced in the treatment of methadone withdrawal symptoms.

Teen alcohol abuse and its treatment is a serious medical and social problem tough for both young patients and their parents. The task of our clinic, MedicoMente, is help quickly, safely, and painlessly in such a serious problem, cure a teenager and support his family in distress.

What is teenage alcohol abuse?

Teen (child) alcohol abuse is a severe mental addiction with the transition to a chronic stage (a type of substance abuse), characterized by an addiction to the use of alcoholic beverages by adolescents. A type of alcoholism, difficult to identify and treat, dangerous for the quick development of physical and mental components of addiction, with severe medical-social and medical-biological consequences.

Causes of alcohol addiction

Causes of teen (child) alcohol abuse are as follows:

 

  • psychological (depression, feelings of loneliness and misunderstanding in the family, interest, influence of peers, impossibility of refusal, alcohol advertising, imitation of elders and the desire to grow up faster, alcohol-addicted relatives);
  • physiological (low resistance of the growing organism, rapid addiction and growing tolerance to alcohol);
  • social (accessibility, popularity, constant and ubiquitous advertising of alcohol, social environment)
  • family (alcohol-addicted parents; often low alcohol drinks are misconsidered as non-dangerous for a child)

 

 

As many organs and systems are just being formed, alcohol addiction in teenagers develops faster than in adults, which is the main problem in the treatment and recovery of the body.

 


Treatment of teen alcohol addiction requires doctors to be particularly delicate and highly skilled.

Stages of alcohol addiction

A teenager can start drinking just for the fun of it, “to join the crowd”. Here, the task of parents, teachers and the close environment is to catch the moment, immediately seek professional help in a specialized medical clinic.

 


Stage 0: casual or situational use of small amounts of alcohol (for example: beer, low alcohol drinks, alcoholic cocktails) with mild psychological addiction. Risk of losing control over the use and the transition to the next stage of addiction.

 


Stage 1: mental alcohol addiction. Characteristics: an obsessive desire to drink alcohol, increasing doses and choosing stronger drinks, loss of body response (nausea, vomiting) to an excess of alcohol, change in tolerance and reactivity to alcohol.

 


Stage 2: physical and mental alcohol addiction. Characteristics: systematic alcohol use due to the somatic status and hormonal disorders, hangover syndrome, binge drinking, alcoholic psychosis, delirium.

 


Stage 3: physiological changes – extreme addiction. Characteristics: zero alcohol tolerance, indiscriminate use of alcohol, complete physical addiction, psychosomatic disorders (personality degradation, irreversible damage to the central nervous system, brain, gastrointestinal tract, circulatory system, and other organs).

 


Treatment of alcohol addiction can be started at any of these stages, but ensures easier and faster stable results if started early.

Symptoms of alcohol addiction

Signs of alcohol use in teenagers:

 

  • characteristic smell of alcohol;
  • discoordination;
  • aggression;
  • change of environment (dubious friends);
  • problems with study, conflicts at an educational institution;
  • asocial lifestyle;
  • change of habits and needs;
  • denial of the problem, attempts to justify themselves;
  • untidiness;
  • missing things and valuables from home.

 


Any of these symptoms should make alert, in case of any suspicions, do not hesitate to contact a narcologist. Our specialists will help to find the truth, diagnose the problem, and motivate the teenager to treatment.

Consequences of alcohol addiction

Any alcohol is detrimental to a growing body!

 


It gives no chance to grow up mentally and physically healthy!

 


All organs and systems degrade, and functional deformation of the immature body starts:

 

  • Gastrointestinal tract (gastritis, dystrophy and cirrhosis of the liver);
  • Hormonal regulation (diabetes mellitus, pancreatitis)
  • Cardiovascular system (myocardial dystrophy – non-inflammatory damage to the heart muscle, varicose veins);
  • Psyche (severe mental disorders);
  • Higher nervous activity (decreased brain activity, memory impairment, addiction to alcohol);
  • Behavioral degradation (early sexual activity, pregnancy, concomitant diseases such as AIDS, venereal and infectious diseases).

Treatment of alcohol addiction is effective when provided comprehensively. The comprehensive program includes psychological motivation, detoxification, complete laboratory and diagnostic examination of organs and systems, stabilization and restoration of body functions, drug and physiotherapy recovery, supportive therapy, adaptation and socialization of the patient.
To make the treatment of addiction as easy as possible and exclude relapses, it should proceed in a hospital. The doctors of MedicoMente treat patients with alcohol addiction as comfortable and safe as possible; modern methods of treatment, the experience of medical personnel, and round-the-clock monitoring will help to cope with such a delicate problem and get rid of addiction.

Methods used

Alcohol addiction treatment methods:

 

  • Detoxification – cleansing the body of alcohol and related toxins, getting rid of acute conditions, stabilizing the body, helping and preventing the development of withdrawal symptoms.
  • Psychotherapy – psychiatric, psychotherapeutic support at all stages of alcoholism treatment (psychocorrection, classical methods, hypnosis, including pharmacological).
  • Medication (ibogaine therapy, aversive therapy, implants);
  • Instrumental therapy – recovery of the body with the help of modern specialized medical and physiotherapeutic equipment.
  • Additional therapy – treatment of concomitant diseases, physiotherapy, various types of massage, therapeutic exercises etc.

 

 

Let’s consider the main methods.

Detoxification in the treatment of alcoholism

Detoxification plays an important role in the most rapid cleansing and the beginning of recovery processes in the body.

 


The clinic effectively uses the following techniques:

 


Mitigation of acute alcohol disorders:

 

  • Infusion therapy with the mandatory introduction of anticonvulsant, anti-anxiety, sedative, sleep-inducing, and symptomatic agents, is carried out to reduce anxiety;
  • To eliminate the consequences of dehydration, drugs are prescribed that enrich the body with magnesium, potassium, liquid, and other microelements;
  • To restore vitamin balance and normalize sleep, vitamins are prescribed;
  • To restore and protect liver function, hepatoprotectors are prescribed;
  • Neurometabolic therapy – prevention and treatment of encephalopathy, concomitant pathologies.

 

 

Combination detoxification is performed with the use of antipsychotics, antispasmodics, anticonvulsants, sedatives, painkillers, and psychotropic drugs (in a small dosage), considering the patient’s condition, the presence of concomitant diseases, and the degree of damage to internal organs.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is the most important method of alcohol addiction treatment. It is a starting point for the effective treatment. The first free initial consultation gives the patient internal motivation, reveals important factors and internal problems of addiction.

 


A psychotherapist assists the patient from the first visit until the end of the therapy. At all stages of treatment, tasks are set and solved related to the analysis of the causes of alcohol addiction, a return to a sober life, support in ending the result.

 


Psychological support is also provided to the patient’s family, close relatives and friends.

 


The doctor selects the individual psychotherapeutic method to ensure the most effective result.

 

 

Methods used:

 

  • psychocorrection;
  • classical technique;
  • hypnosis (including pharmacological);
  • cognitive behavioral therapy;
  • emotional imagery therapy;
  • relaxing techniques.

 

 

Working with a psychotherapist is just as important as detoxification and physical recovery. Drugs are not always enough to ensure the desired effect without psychological help. Psychotherapy makes it easier for a person to get rid of alcohol addiction and fix the result.

 


After the end of the main course of therapy, psychological support of the patient, prevention of relapses, monitoring of consciousness, adaptation of the patient to a sober lifestyle, and family sessions are conducted.

 


The patients are prescribed psychotherapy in combination with medical gymnastics, various types of massage, physiotherapy.

Medication therapy for alcoholism

Medication programs applied:

 

  • Ibogaine therapy – the use of a natural alkaloid to “reboot” the brain, destroy the subconscious causes of alcohol addiction, relieve withdrawal symptoms;
  • Aversive therapy – helps developing aversion to alcohol at the subconscious level due to the formation of a negative reflex to taste, smell, and alcohol-containing products in general. Often, drugs based on disulfiram, esperal, which cause alcohol intolerance at the physical level, are used for treatment. Treatment is carried out only under the supervision of a physician to prevent possible complications to exclude all contraindications.
  • Implants – the use of prolonged action of disulfiram or esperal (analog) drugs – blockers of the effects of alcohol at the biochemical level (cause a response to alcohol in the form of nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath, dizziness, flushing and burning of the skin, and other somatic symptoms). Treatment is carried out only under the supervision of a doctor to avoid complications, as there are contraindications.

Instrumental therapy

The restoration of the body with the help of modern equipment is carried out using extracorporeal methods:

 

  • plasmapheresis (microfiltration and partial removal of plasma containing toxins, allergens, residues of medical and narcotic substances),
  • hemosorption (extrarenal cleansing of blood from toxins using sorbents),
  • laser and ultraviolet blood irradiation,
  • electro-neuro-craniostimulation and electro-neuro modulation,
  • lymphatic drainage and pressure therapy.

 


All prescribed methods and procedures are carried out by experienced doctors. The patient is under round-the-clock medical supervision.

 


Monitoring continues after discharge too. During the year, if necessary, and longer, the health status is monitored, support and assistance is provided to overcome the arising difficulties.

We know how to help you!

The history of drinking beer has long and tangled roots. The low alcohol content of beer gives an imaginary sense of security, and obtrusive advertising, price, and culture of drinking this drink (meetings over a bottle of “beer”, picnics, watching TV programs) aggravate the problem, driving a person to beer alcoholism.

Beer addiction specificity

Beer alcoholism is the most common type of alcohol addiction. Beer addiction can develop over several years with the transition to stronger drinks, turning into severe alcoholism.

Causes and factors

Beer addiction is dangerous due to the specific attitude of society towards beer drinking. Financial companies that brightly and interestingly represent beer on the market do their best to hinder to perceive this as a problem requiring treatment, as a risk to human health and life. The beer is offered as a thirst-quenching drink, omitting that each bottle contains 50-100 grams(!) of pure alcohol. A person from a commercial with a misted glass in his hand is not perceived as a potential alcoholic. While the danger is real.

 


Reasons for drinking beer:

 

  • Popularity
  • Low price
  • Hereditary alcoholism
  • Relaxation, stress release
  • Quenching thirst
  • Companies with a beer ‘bias’.

Stages of alcohol addiction

Stage 0: casual or situational use of small amounts of beer (max, 1 liter) with mild psychological addiction. Risk of losing control over the use and the transition to the next stage of addiction.

 


Stage 1: mental alcohol addiction (an obsessive desire to drink beer, an increase in the dose (more than a liter), the loss of the body’s reaction to an excess of alcohol).

 


Stage 2: physical and mental alcohol addiction (systematic beer use due to hormonal disorders, switching to stronger drinks, hangover syndrome, binge drinking, alcoholic psychosis.

 


Stage 3: physiological changes – extreme addiction, zero alcohol tolerance, indiscriminate use of alcohol, complete physical addiction, psychosomatic disorders).

 


Treatment of beer alcohol addiction can be started at any of these stages but ensures easier and faster long-lasting and positive results if started early.

Symptoms

The following factors can be signs of beer alcoholism:

 

  • physiological (“beer” stomach, headaches, swelling);
  • behavioral (aggression, conflict, desocialization);
  • psychological (denial of the problem, apathy, depressions).

 


If you notice the systematic hard drinking of beer or any of these symptoms, do not hesitate to contact a narcologist. The clinic’s specialists will help motivate a person, facilitate and accelerate the treatment of beer alcohol addiction.

Consequences

Beer alcoholism affects all internal organs:

 

  • cardiovascular disorders (thickened walls of the heart, a dilated heart cavity – the so-called “beer heart”, necrosis of the heart muscle, heart attacks);
  • gastrointestinal disorders (gastritis, pancreatitis, hepatitis, cirrhosis of the liver, renal dysfunction);
  • brain disorders (death of brain cells, epilepsy, damage to vision and hearing);
  • hormonal and reproductive disorders (obesity, in men – an increase in the breast, pelvis, gynecoid-type obesity, in women – coarsening of the voice, growing of beard and mustache);
  • nervous system disorders (neuropathy, headache).

A person with alcohol addiction can often lose control over alcohol drinking, which can lead to a state of binge drinking (systematic daily drinking of high doses of alcohol).

  • Real binge (cyclical periods of intense craving for alcohol, which arise and are accompanied by changes in the somatic and mental nature);
