Addiction is a reality many of us do not understand or choose to ignore. Addiction can hit anyone without even knowing it, because addiction does not imply only drugs or alcohol as many believe.
Millions of people around the world are addicts, many of them are killed by their addictions, many choose to be ignorant and refuse help, and only few seek help and get a fresh start.
Addiction is considered a condition which results when an individual ingests a substance, such as alcohol, nicotine or drugs, or engages in an activity, such as gambling, that can be pleasurable to the extent of becoming compulsive and interfering with the individual's life responsibilities and health. Addicts do not have control over their behavior, many time causing problems for themselves and those around them.
Although addiction dates back hundreds of years, it is still not certain whether it is a disease or a mental illness. Whatever it is, the truth is that anyone can become an addict without even knowing it. Leaving drugs aside, any normal daily activity or harmless habit can become addiction when mental or physical conditions become involved. You cannot stop playing video games, you lose days and nights at work or cannot quit smoking? You are an addict.
There are two main types of addictions: substance related and behavioral or process related.
1. drug addiction
2. behavioral addiction
According to World Health Organization, alcohol kills 2.5 million people annually, drugs kill 250,000 people annually, tobacco (lung cancer) kills 6 million people annually. It is not only addictions that kill, but also depression and anxiety which come hand in hand with dependence, but also ignorance and not asking for help.
The first step in treating addiction is to recognize that an individual needs help. Many times is not the addicts who seek help, but their friends and family and parents, as the biggest category of addicts is represented by teenagers. There are various types of treatments and each one has to be chosen according to the multiple needs of the individual, not just to treat addiction.
Dr. Vorobiev is a renowned psychiatrist, expert in narcomania, resuscitation specialist and toxicologist, not only in Russia, but all over Europe. With an experience of more than 20 years, Dr. Vorobiev has managed to develop his own unique methods to help addicts from all the world regain their healthy and happy pre-addiction lives. At the core of his methods, stands the concept of brain impact therapy, which helps the patients forget that he was an addict and that he needed drugs on a daily basis.
The Naltrexone implant therapy is among the methods used by Dr. Vororbiev at his anti-addiction clinics. Although Naltrexone can be administered under the form of tablets, injections or implant, the most efficient is the later, with the highest success score. Naltrexone is an opioid antagonist which helps the patients get back to a drug free life.
The first step is detoxification, cleanse the body out of the drugs and let the patient pass through the withdrawal stage. Naltrexone will be implanted if the patient will manage to stay drug free for at least 10 days. The implant is placed under the skin in the lower abdominal area, and therefore a continuous level of Naltrexone is released regularly in the body. Naltrexone keeps opioid receptors blocked, affects the main mechanism of dependence, helping the patient get rid of his addiction.
The Naltrexone implant can last for 2, 3, 6 or 12 months, depending on each patient's needs. But in order to be efficient, Dr. Vorobiev advises patients to have the implant for at least 12 months, for long-term results. Currently, Naltrexone is the best pharmacological protection against drugs, as it is able to interfere into underlying mechanisms that are common to all types of addiction.
"The implants are manufactured in the US, China, Japan, Holland, Australia and the UK, being FDA approved. Naltrexone program works best if it is used in connection with an overall treatment regime, such as anti drug craving therapy, psychological therapy, counseling and support group therapy. Unfortunately drug cravings are not cured using this method, therefore the patient has to be 100% convinced that he wants this, and do his part in the process," says Dr. Vorobiev.
The price for the Naltrexone implant varies from 400 euro for a 2-month treatment to 2,500 euro for a 12-month treatment. A person may have repeated Naltrexone implantations if it is necessary. The duration of the treatment and the number of implants are determined by the doctor.
"Dr. Vorobiev's unique ways for treating addictions and compulsive behaviors like gambling., as well as depression, panic attacks, social phobia and stuttering are known all over the world. Combining his unique detoxification methods with the Naltrexone Implant helps the patient win 80% the battle with addiction. The other 20% is up to him. Nevertheless, hundreds of former addicts treated by Dr. Vorobiev have managed to win the fight and regain what was once theirs: a happy and healthy life next to their dear ones, " added Pramod Goel, CEO and Founder of PlacidWay Medical Tourism Company.
