Successful treatment is the biggest part of the job. However, post-treatment support is very important to keep things from returning to the previous level of functioning.
What is post-treatment support?
Post-treatment support is a continuous process of monitoring and encouraging former patients to maintain a healthy lifestyle and functioning.
What happens after treatment?
When the treatment process is finished, family members of addicts are happy but also worried at the same time. They tend to react to the smallest detail they can associate with the former life of the addict. Sometimes this is justified, but sometimes these are just false alarms.
This results in tense situations and conflicts. And the addict can turn back to substances as a way of escaping the problem.
The key is that the family provides support to the addict, and if not sure how, it can learn about it at our VIP Vorobjev Clinic.
Why is post-treatment support important?
Post-treatment support is important for several reasons.

We know how much reintegration into society can be stressful for a person who has just overcome an addictive disorder.
It is necessary to change the previous circle of people of the former addict. This requires the acquisition of new social skills and strengthening of self-confidence.
The illness handicaps a person for some period and takes away all his attention and time. Content is needed, and the content cannot be reached by the person himself; at least at the very beginning, the person needs guidance. That is why in our clinic post-treatment support takes a special place.
