Drug addiction is a very complex disease, accompanied by an active pathological thirst of the addict to take psychoactive substances (drugs). This disease has become very widespread not only in Odessa and Ukraine, but throughout the world. According to official WHO data, more than 75% of deaths are directly or indirectly related to drug use.
Drug addiction is a chronic disease that affects people of all genders, ages and social groups. If your loved one becomes a drug addict, immediately seek drug treatment – this will help save his life and return him to normal life.
Drug addiction is accompanied by a gradual development in several phases with the formation of a number of syndromes. The prescribed regimen, as well as the cost of treatment, directly depends on the stage of development of the disease.

Let’s consider them in more detail:
Fact. Today, information about the dangers of drug addiction is available to everyone, but more than 90% of people close to drug addicts are not ready to directly discuss this problem with them. The main reason for this attitude is the low awareness of the inhabitants of Odessa and Ukraine, who do not attach significant importance to this problem.
Symptoms of drug use directly depend on various reasons, including: the type of psychoactive substance, the length of time of use and the physiological characteristics of the body of a particular person. In narcology, symptoms of drug addiction are divided into four main groups:
The most pronounced indicator that can indicate that a person is addicted to drugs is the marks of injections on the body. Keep in mind that the longer the experience of using psychoactive substances, the more pronounced the symptoms.
Addiction is not always formed after the first use of a psychoactive substance, but the thirst to get an imaginary feeling of bliss and euphoria again psychologically pushes the patient to repeated and further use.
Pay attention! During his life, the average drug addict in Odessa encourages about 13-15 people to take drugs. Most become addicted and do not live long.
There is a whole complex of reasons and factors that can provoke the development of drug addiction in humans. Narcologists classify these reasons into two main categories, according to the age groups of drug addicts:
Fact. Practicing narcologists believe that about 30% of students of elite Odessa universities have a “chemical addiction”. This suggests that a sufficiently high material and social status does not protect against this disease.
A very important factor provoking adolescents to use drugs is the lack of attention, care and love on the part of their parents. A child in the period of growing up and gaining independence requires to be heard and understood by loved ones.
Another reason is the teenager’s desire to express a protest formed by his internal conflict – the teenager makes this step out of his own selfishness or in spite of his family. It should be borne in mind that drug addiction is a collective problem that instantly spreads in questionable companies.
The use of drugs, allows you to “plunge into drug dreams”, adults get imaginary calmness and bliss. During the period of action of the substance, stress and worries remain in the background. A significant rise in drug addiction among adults is observed during periods of economic crises or social upheavals, when material and moral challenges fall on people.
The use of psychoactive substances poses a serious threat not only to the physical, but also to the mental health of the addict. Even a single drug use can lead to reversible or irreversible consequences.
The severity of the consequences depends on the type of drug used, the dose, the physical characteristics of the body and the length of time of use. The higher the length of service, the greater the risk of getting irreversible consequences, such as: bipolar disorder, neuroses, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and depression.
According to the official data of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, there are about 500 thousand active drug addicts in the country, 300 thousand of whom are “on the needle”. The number of HIV positive injecting drug users is in the range of 42-76%. This problem affects every 10 families in Odessa.
Drug addiction in Ukraine has a pronounced sexual predisposition. In percentage terms, 80% of men and 20% of women suffer from addiction. About 8-26% of schoolchildren aged 13-16 years had experience of drug use.
Almost all addicts do not acknowledge their problem and do not agree to drug addiction treatment. The question of compulsory treatment of drug addiction raised by relatives is often ineffective – it allows you to eliminate only the physical side of the problem, therefore, in 95% of cases, a relapse is observed already in the first year after completing the course. Compulsory treatment today is possible only by a court decision, which significantly complicates this procedure.
The only correct step towards effective therapy is the addict’s psychological rethinking of their problem. It is important that he gets the right motivation, which can be achieved through the method of psychological intervention.
This method provides for a very close psychological work of a specialist with a patient. The doctor penetrates the addict’s personal space and introduces positive changes in his thinking – this helps the addict make the right decision and undergo treatment.
The key element of the method is a competent consultation of a psychiatrist, during which a very subtle change in a person’s thinking is performed to obtain a positive response to further therapy.
The applied method of psychological intervention requires an extremely comprehensive approach from the doctor. Even a minor factor can cause a relapse. Such specialists work in the specialized drug clinic “MEDLUX”. The center is accredited by a medical institution of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine.
