Drug abuse and substance abuse is rampant around the world. Addictions and substance abuse are not limited to narcotics and alcohol, but can include prescription drug use, gambling, or any other type of behavior detrimental to physical and emotional well-being. Rehabilitation for such addictions utilizes various methods of treatment, depending on the severity of the addiction, the age of the individual, the duration of the addiction as well as the mental outlook and behaviors of the person experiencing the addiction.
Traditional treatments for substance abuse and drug addiction have involved detox programs where the body is weaned off alcohol, drugs, or the behavior, and include counseling, and in some cases, medications designed to help reduce symptoms of withdrawal.
Facilities in Serbia and Russia, such as those of Dr. Nikolay Vorobiev, native of Russia, with clinics in six international locations, offers treatments include painless detoxification, eliminating addiction, substance aversive therapies, psychotherapies, and a blend of complementary or nonmedical therapies that include but are not limited to acupuncture, massage, and a treatment called criotherapy.
Combining methodologies of physical and physiological approaches to deal with addictions, Dr. Vorobiev’s clinics offer detoxification, which generally lasts two to four days, psychotherapy, and aversion therapy designed to create an intense dislike or distaste of the specific addiction a person is suffering from.
