WHAT FOR WE DO THIS?

The majority of people using drugs and alcohol are between 18 and 39 years old. This is the age of population able to work and of reproductive age. Alcoholism and drug addiction is a disease. We think that we should help those who are ready to accept their addiction and work on oneself to cope with it.

HOW DOES THIS WORK?

Project participants live in a separate house. Each of them has a possibility to change destructive behavioral model, fully concentrate on their problem and truly start to solve it. Residence conditions are arranged in such a way that patients can always share their feelings with someone, to communicate or vice a versa seek solitude.

The suggested program of rehabilitation is based on the method of therapeutic society. There is no clear division into patents and consultants – it is becoming more important to be open in communications between patient and personnel and between the members of staff itself. There appears the feeling of unity thanks to such a methods as daily meetings of society, group therapy, informational lessons, self analysis, written tasks, art therapy lessons, sports games, etc. The working atmosphere is created by the process participants themselves. With such an approach patient starts to play not passive but active role as a participant of therapy process.
