Welcome to Dr Vorobiev's The Rehab Clinic
In 1992 psychiatrist and psychotherapist Dr. Nicholay Vorobiev began treating patients suffering from drug and alcohol addiction. Following all of the traditionally accepted methods of treatment he soon came to realize that the results obtained were quite unsatisfactory, and often very unreliable.
Dr. Vorobiev felt the need for something new and revolutionary in the treatment of heroin, cocaine, marijuana, alcohol, tablet addictions, for something that could offer real results. Thus began the search for new methods, the psychotherapeutic experiment, the unorthodox solutions, and the first victories. Over time Dr. Vorobiev's method - which seeks to establish in the patient a negative relationship with the substance of addiction, by developing a psychological as well as physiological aversion to the substance in question - began to take shape. News of the doctor and his effective new methodology spread quickly.
Why Choose Rehab Clinic - Dr Vorobiev?
Since their founding, our clinics have treated over 10,000 patients suffering from alcohol and drug addiction. Our special medical treatment program is a unique mix of international methodology combined with our own expertise. The result is a successful remission rate many times higher than those found in traditional rehabilitation centers.
A study conducted between May 2007 and May 2008 measured the longer-term outcomes of our patients? recoveries from narcotics addiction. The results were striking: 75% of patients were in excellent remission; 19% were in satisfactory remission. Just 11% of patients were in unsatisfactory remission.
Six more reasons for choosing Dr Vorobiev Clinic:
People from all over the world are treated in our clinic in Belgrade. Within 30 minutes of being greeted at the airport by a member of our staff, the patient is introduced to his or her doctor. Within another 30 minutes the patient is in his or her room undergoing the first diagnostic tests. Should the patient be suffering from withdrawal he or she is provided with aid from the outset. No pains are spared to ensure the patient's comfort. Food is prepared four times a day, and in accordance with the patient's religious beliefs or possible food allergies. All rooms, single and double, come equipped with air-conditioning, private bathrooms and cable television. Table-tennis, billiards, and video game systems can also be found for the patient's enjoyment. During the second stage of the treatment patients are taken to the movies, museums, the zoo and the botanical gardens. Parts of the treatment take place outside of the clinic's walls.
The clinic is open to patients from all countries, suffering from every addiction imaginable, from drugs, to alcohol, to gambling, benzodiazepines and barbiturates etc. Moreover, patients can also be treated for neuroses, depression, even stuttering. A complete examination along with the treatment of any underlying mental disorders or other accompanying illnesses is something the doctors consider a matter of professional duty and ethics.
The team of doctors functioning under Dr. Vorobiev's guidance includes psychiatrists, neurologists, psychotherapists, anaesthesiologists, doctors specialising in resuscitation, and doctors specializing in internal medicine. The doctors of all kinds of specialties are being enlisted if necessary.?
The number of patients seeking treating of heroin, alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, tablet addictions grew, and along with the demand grew the clinic. Doctors were chosen with great care, trained and developed, until a team of the highest quality had been created, a team which could constantly work on refining the clinic's treatment methods, seeking to bring even better results than those already achieved.
What Makes Us Different?
ALL CONSULTATIONS WITH THE CLINIC SPECIALISTS ARE FREE OF CHARGE
The Narcology Clinic of Doctor Vorobiev started? working in May 2007. The work of the hospital is approved by the local authorities, the Ministry of Health. The inspection of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Serbia approved the work of the hospital, as they found that all necessary conditions for opening the hospital are fulfilled (rooms, equipment, well trained personal etc).
Structure of Nosologic Forms Hospitalizing Patients
The Variants of Treatments:
Based on catamnestic observation of the patients which undergone the treatment programs, the results are listed below. Informations about condition of patients have been gathered on the regular monthly talks with the doctors in the hospital (during the out-patient program), filled electronic forms on the internet, telephone consultations with the patients and their families.
Duration of Patient Treatments in the Programs in June 2008
Conclusion: it is well known that addictions are chronic progressive disease with periodical recidives with the hard consequences on psychical, psychological and social condition of the patient. The analysis of the clinic's effectiveness during the period from May 2007 till May 2008 showed high number of patients who are not using the narcotics for a long period of time, 79 % of remission with duration of 12 months, high percent of the patients who are satisfied with their condition (75 % of excellent quality remission).
Clinics now exist in the following Russian cities:Moscow, Rostov-on-Don, Krasnodar, Pyatigorsk, and Georgievsk. As well the clinic based in Belgrade, Serbia has now been treating patients from Europe for two years.??
The Doctor Vorobiev's Method
The basis of the method lies in the treatment of the brain through a unique combination of medicine, equipment, and a special informational psychotherapy. Medications chosen on an individual basis insure that the patient retains his or her ability to sleep comfortably, and that the overall mood of the patient remains positive.
Special equipment is used to stimulate the brain with the intention of reducing the asymmetry between the processes of excitement and inhibition in the right and left hand sides of the brain. This serves to relax the patient, to improve the patient?s overall mood and most importantly, to reduce the attraction of intoxication.
Informational influence to the patient's psyche by transmitting open as well as hidden messages to the patient in states of wakefulness, trance and sleep allows for new, positive ideas (approved by patient) to be inculcated. It bans drugs and alcohol. It opens the images of desired future, improves self-confidence and lays the foundations of new and healthy behaviour.?????
Aversion therapy aids in the development of strong negative physiological as well emotional responses against the previously desired substances, which can completely transform the patient?s relationship to his or her former way of life.
Heroin, cocaine, marijuana, tablet and? alcohol addictions are treatable diseases and drug abuse can be stopped!
The clinic's laboratories take care of such procedures as:
These also include citological, gistological and serological analysis, which allows us to determine all "by - diseases".
Experienced doctors and laboratory assistants changes in patients for the whole process of treatment and rehabilitation.
The team of doctors functioning under Dr. Vorobyov's guidance includes psychiatrists, neurologists, psychotherapists, anaesthesiologists, doctors specialising in resuscitation, and doctors specializing in internal medicine. The doctors of all kinds of specialties are being enlisted if necessary.?
Opiate drugs are very dangerous to withdraw from unsupervised because they are designed so that the body becomes so dependent on them to function that the individual can have seizures, heart attacks and other very acute medical emergencies while simply trying to free themselves of the drugs. Therefore, a medical detox is? necessary, depending on the person?s usage and drug of choice, to ensure medical safety while withdrawing from the drugs.
In 2-4 days (depending on the seriousness of withdrawal symptoms), the physical addiction is painlessly removed using highlyeffective methods of deintoxication, through the use of various types of therapy together with the newest medicines.
The intensive therapy section is equipped in accordance to all modern standards for reanimation and monitoring the most important functions of the human body.
The patient does not feel any physical pain as this intensive therapy is conducted with narcosis by experienced anesthesiologists and reanimatologists
Eliminating the pathological attraction to addictive substances
This is modern narcology's most difficult task, and our greatest achievement. 16 years of research and hard work have refined Dr. Vorobiev?s method to such a point where patients become indifferent to drugs, alcohol, to the substances that formerly held them prisoner. The desire to get high, or drunk, disappears completely.
How Does This Happen?
Our method of brain treatment effects the psychological side of dependence in three different ways:
Medication is chosen for each patient in accordance with his or her physical and mental state, as well as the specifics of his or her character and personality. This type of individual approach to psycho-pharmacology allows for the elimination and prevention of depression and other mental disorders, for the provision of undisturbed sleep, for the harmonizing of the patient?s natural biorhythms, and for the regulation of the processes of excitement and inhibition. The medication also serves to prepare the patient?s brain for the next stages of treatment.
Other devices decrease worry and anxiety beta-rhythms in the patient's brain while increasing pleasure and comfort alpha-rhythms, helping in the cultivation of positive brain activity.
As well devices are used to stimulate the production of endorphins ? the hormones of pleasure and bliss.
All of this helps to considerably improve the mental state of the patient, in turn allowing us to reduce the size of doses of medication.
Information is transmitted to the conscious and unconscious parts of the patient?s brain, carrying varying messages and formulas, which continue throughout the entire treatment process. In part these messages are pictures of horror, pictures of the suffering and death that result from drugs. They serve to create a firm feeling of aversion for all things related to drug addiction. But they also serve to affirm positive, healthy images related to a sober future ? family life, friends, and other normal pleasures. A new life, with new goals gradually takes the place of the old negative memories and feelings of guilt that can weigh a person down.
The combination of these different types of treatment brings us to our goal ? a cold indifference towards a substance that formerly held one captive. Thoughts that formerly ran constantly through one's mind ? disappear. Many patients even forget what it felt like to take drugs.
The End Result
People take drugs and drink not because it is good for them, or because it helps make them richer. On the contrary, gradually losing control over their own lives, alone with their broken bodies, they come to understand that not all is as it should be.
So Just Why Do They Do It Then?
They have to, they have no choice, because they have developed the habit of relaxing in this way, and in this way finding joy. It is then that they come to associate the substance with pleasure, with a pleasant high.
Aversion therapy transforms indifference into horror and disgust. This gives our patients more certainty in the future, protecting them from possible relapses.
Therapy of Birth
This method results in a renewal of internal resources; movingthrough all stages of development up to ontogenesis, the changing of emotional state, and overcoming of internal barriers.
On the physical level, yoga postures, called asanas, are designed to tone, strengthen, and align the body. These postures are performed to make the spine supple and healthy and to promote blood flow to all the organs, glands, and tissues, keeping all the bodily systems healthy. On the mental level, yoga uses breathing techniques (pranayama) and meditation (dyana) to quiet, clarify, and discipline the mind. Yoga is a way of living with health and peace of mind as its aims.
Hellinger's Family Positions Method
In the process of this psychotherapy family relations are normalized, patients come to understand theirown position in their family and change their attitude towards other family members.
This method involves full body relaxation; transpersonal experience; it offers an opportunity to escape fear, and concentrate on the level of muscular? tension.
This method is aimed at creating a favourable psychological atmosphere of supportfor all feelings and sensations without intellectual correction of their content by means of empirical self - research. Moreover, work on psychosomatic symptoms is used.
Transpersonal session is an approach to self-exploration and healing that integrates insights from modern consciousness research, anthropology, various depth psychologies, transpersonal psychology, Eastern spiritual practices, and mystical traditions of the world.
The method comprises five elements: group process, intensified breathing, evocative music, focused body work, and expressive drawing. The method's general effect is a non-specific amplification of a person's psychic process, which facilitates the psyche's natural capacity for healing.
Integrator of Eye Movement
The goal of psychotherapy sessions is to ensure unconscious access of a patient to resource conditions with the help of specially organized eye movement. The psychological basis of this procedure lies in the liquidation of emotional reactivity of a personality and its safeguarding from adrenaline splashes. In return, it creates new independent state of reminiscences.
One of the unique methods used in the Vorobiev Clinics, is the latest achievement in the sphere of practical psychology and psychotherapy called "Integrator of eye movement". The psychological basis of this program is the conception of Ernst Rossi and David Krik about condition dependent memory. Condition dependent memory is active on unconscious levels and creates the basis for psychological breaches and is the source for psychological and psychosomatic problems.
This apparatus is earmarked for transcranial electrical treatment. Current from the apparatus penetrates through skin and head and affects antinociceptive structures of the brain, what entails an intensification of forming of opioid peptids. The cellular immunity is being essentially improved and acute chronic pain syndromes areweakened and limited.
This apparatus accelerates the circulation of blood; increases blood volume in the brain, liver, kidneys; enriches with oxygen; intensifies removal of the toxins from the liver; regulates internal secretion; decreases cholesterol levels and the quantity of adipose cells, making vessel sides more elastic.
In the fifties the method of electro - encepholography has been developed. This method allows to fix and to study electrical potencials of the brain. It was determined that the brain is able to follow different rhythm stimula, for example, impulses of the hyper - low - tension current, light flash and acoustic flicks, if the frequency of such stimula is in the natural diapason of the frequencies of electrical potencials of the brain (0,5 - 42 Hz).
The brain follows stimula in the frequency interval 10 - 25 Hz very well, but under conditions of the special training this interval can be expanded up to the whole diapason of the natural frequencies of the brain. This discovery allowed to create effective training system for the brain for achievment of necessary conditions. Nowadays four types of electrical oscillations of the human brain are considered to be main. Every type of such electrical oscilattions has its own frequency diapason and dominates under respective state of consciousness.
This unique methodology of correction of central nervous system: a doctor influences on sub - ordinant structures and levels phatological asymmetry of brain hemispheres.
It changes excitability of brain neurons, stimulets synthesis of different biologically active substance combinations. Efficiency of acupuncture while treating neuropsychiatric diseases is connected with restoration of dynamic equilibrium between process of excitement and braking in structures of central nervous system.
Different massage methods are applied dependent on genesis and stage of the disease. Massage favourably influences on emotional sphere, psychical health, nervous system, renewing mechanism of self - regulation in organismus.
Criotherapy is very effective in the case of any abstinence syndroms and breach of gomeostasis. This method is applied in the case of depressive state, hard somatic diseases. Craving for drugs and psychoactive substances immensly decreases.
The clinic has unique possibilities for long - standing rehabilitation in Caucasus mineral water resorts. Patients receive balneo - and physical medical treatment in the best sanatoriums of Pyatigorsk, Kislovodsk, Essentuki.
Special psychotherapy programs are conducted in the North Caucasus and on the Black Sea coast. These programs are earmarked both for patients and their relatives. After finishing rehabilitation patients are assisted in finding a job, solving legal questions, and reinstatement of professional skills.
As a result patients completely socially adapt themselves and restore their lost personality.
Making the Results Stick
For 12 months following the intensive treatment received in the clinic the patient continues treatment as an out-patient at home. Small doses of medication serve to ward off stress, depression, and insomnia, insuring a painless transition to sobriety. At least once a month the patient talks to the psychiatrist to ensure the treatment is being effectively and properly preserved. All consultations with the doctor or medical assistance are provided free of charge at any time for whatever problems may arise, whether they be related to a downswing in mood, a loss of appetite, negative thoughts or doubts, etc?. By the time a year has passed sobriety becomes the natural state for the patient. The brain once again begins to produce a sufficient amount of endorphins, which offer one the pleasure that comes from a clean and healthy life. After this the patient switches to elective treatment, should the need for further treatment arise.
Doctor Vorobiev's clinic does everything to achieve and retain the results of sobriety. Prevention of relapse is attained by offering long term contact and support to patients, by being prepared for and seeking early symptoms of relapse, and by acting swiftly, not giving problems the opportunity to develop.
Addiction is not the only problem we solve.? Using every possibility generously given to us by the nature of the Caucasus, we improve the physical and psychological condition of our patients.? Our clinic is located in right in the center of the resort zone, so our patients have access to all types of water, mud, and climate treatment.? We have a tour guide on staff who accompanies patients on walks around the city.?
The clinic is equipped with everything necessary for diagnostics, treatment (including emergency care), and psychological rehabilitation, and our rooms are very comfortably equipped.? Our unique cable television system allows us to broadcast special programs to our patients, influencing their subconscious and creating an aversion to drugs and alcohol.? This also helps patients create a healthy lifestyle.? Our clinic in the Caucasus is one of the first created by Dr. Vorobiev.? Over the years, the clinic has made its mark on a new generation of leaders who have spread Dr. Vorobiev's ideas and unique methods throughout the world.?
About Dr. Vorobiev
Dr. Nikolay Vorobiev began treating people suffering from drug, alcohol, depression and behavioral addictions. He quickly observed that popular addiction treatment methods were only minimally successful. Most positive outcomes, he realized, were not sustainable over a lifetime.
Dr. Vorobiev came to an important conclusion: to rid themselves of addiction, patients must rid themselves of the desire and cravings that drive them. Developing a hardwired aversion ? indifference and repulsion ? to the devastating drugs or behaviors is the key to a patient?s success. Centered on this idea, Dr. Vorobiev began his quest for a new methodology of addiction treatment that eliminates drugs and alcohol cravings.
Dr. Vorobiev?s treatments were effective, and word spread quickly. The number of patients seeking his care grew. The Dr. Vorobiev Rehabilitation Clinic expanded and a larger team of healthcare professionals was assembled ? doctors were carefully selected and then specially trained in Vorobiev?s methodology. The team was founded on the ideal of constant education, improvement, and forward-thinking research.
Since their founding, Dr. Vorobiev Rehab Clinics have treated more than 10,000 patients suffering from alcohol and drug addiction.
Dr. Vorobiev?s acclaimed treatment is available at our seven clinics, located worldwide (Serbia, Russia, Mexico).
The number of patients seeking treating of heroin, alcohol, marihuana, cocaine, tablet addictions grew, and along with the demand grew the clinic. Doctors were chosen with great care, trained and developed, until a team of the highest quality had been created, a team which could constantly work on refining the clinic's treatment methods, seeking to bring even better results than those already achieved.
Dr. Med Nikolay Vorobiev is a Specialist in psychiatry and a well-known expert in narcomania, resuscitation and toxicology. He studied in the Military Medical Academy named after S.M. Kirov, Leningrad, USSR in 1986, and also holds a certificate for medical method of treatment using mesenchymal stromal cells.
Dr. Med Vorobiev is a member of the Academy of Medical & Technical Science of Russian Federation, and also a full member of American Association of Anti-aging Medicine and International Consortium for Cell Therapy and Immunotherapy.
Dr. Nikolay Vorobiev is a permanent attendee of international medical exhibitions dedicated to anti ? aging and alternative medicine and an active participant of international medical conferences and forums. He also has made several scientific publications such as: Clinical ? pathogenetic features of acute poisoning? in 2003 and a Manual for Doctors ?Clinical interpretation of laboratorial researches? in 2006.
Through the years Dr. Nikolay Vorobiev has developed his own therapy, a brain impact therapy, for treating different kinds of addictions; such methods will help the patient forget that took drugs and that once he was addicted to them.
In addition, since 2002 Dr. Vorobiev has created an anti-aging therapy that focuses on restoration of damaged organs and systems, as well as rejuvenation; he has also continuously took part in various international conferences, forums and symposiums around the world, cooperating with many medical companies and practitioners from many countries generating the most effective treatment using mesenchymal stromal cells.
As a result of the his experience, Swiss Medica XXI Century S.A., has been created, this is an international medical holding company,? with several privately owned clinics, in which more than 300 patients has been successfully treated.
I was with one leg in hell, I was also skeptic regarding the drug addiction treatment.The doctors and personnel of Dr. Vorobiev's clinic created a new man out of me, one that thinks sanely. They gave me back a life force which I unfortunately started to lose. In half an hour I am going home and I'm laughing, I'm filled with self confidence and I'm ready to begin my fight for life. Honestly and from the bottom of my heart I give my thanks to the professional team of Dr. Vorobiev's clinic.
I am glad to have met people like you! You have returned my hope and faith in BETTER!!!
I came here with a decision to get rid of a vice, equally hard as a drug addiction, and that is GAMBLING!!!
I've been consuming alcohol for almost seven years (with short breaks). When I didn't have alcohol I would become irritated and get the shakes. I decided to go for treatment and with the help of personnel from Yoga House (the rehabilitation center in Belgrade) and other patients I achieved positive results very quickly and I'll do my best to leave it that way because life without alcohol or other substances can be extremely beautiful. I'm leaving today with hope in a better tomorrow. You will be always with me in my prayers and memories.
And now me hahahaha!!! I don't know where to start since everything is great. I?m extremely grateful to the clinic and Yoga House (the rehabilitation center in Belgrade) for giving me new life, self-confidence, hope, belief, love and all that without which a person can?t live. Thank you a lot! You can succeed if you want! Keep your head up and walk through life with your mind clear! D. loves you very much. KISS!
World Medical Tourism & Global Health Congress in San Francisco 2008
In September 2008, the delegation of the specialists of the Rehabilitation Clinic Dr Vorobiev attended the World Medical Tourism & Global Health Congress in San Francisco. There was given a presentation on the subject of the clinic?s methods of addiction treatments. Important network meetings took place and good business contacts with the future partners were made. Please find the text of the presentation below:
The Treatment of Addiction and Medical Tourism
Ladies, Gentlemen, respected Colleagues.
A few figures, very few indeed, will suffice to show you just why the treatment of addiction has, if you will forgive the expression, a bright future.
Firstly, we find an enormous number of patients suffering from addiction, a number that increases annually.
Secondly, the fact that a large number of patients are financially capable of seeking medical help.
According to various official sources in the United States, no less than 1 million Americans regularly use so called ?heavy? drugs.? They consume over 13 tonnes of heroin a year, which can cost between 500 ? 800 US dollars for a single gram. A heroin addict spends an average of 150 ? 200 dollars a day for his drugs.
Roughly 14 million Americans have a drinking problem. Approximately 100 000 people die each year as a result of alcohol consumption. Students alone spend 5.5 billion dollars on alcohol annually. The amount of money lost to gambling addiction is almost impossible to estimate.
And then there is motivation, which includes a depressing admission of one's own impotence, of one?s inability to break free from a substance on his own. An understanding of the deadly risk of an overdose, of the many accompanying diseases affecting the liver, heart, nervous system, and so on and so forth. Finally, a growing sense of physical, social, and spiritual individuality. Many of our patients are respectable citizens, businessmen, politicians ? people who were trying to relieve the emotional stress of difficult professions in a dangerous way. And these people are prepared to pay for high quality, confidential medical treatment.
Thirdly, there is the desire of many patients to seek qualified treatment far away from the prying eyes of neighbours. This can be found in foreign country. A foreign country can also offer new types of treatment for those who have become disappointed with doctors in their own country.
And a new type of treatment is exactly what we are here to bring to your attention today. For over 16 years a team of doctors under the leadership and guidance of Dr. Nikolay Vorobyov has been applying, practising, and constantly refining a method of treatment which has met with great success in the country of its origin, Russia, and neighbouring Serbia. In the Russian and Serbian clinics were/are being treated people from USA, Norway, Greece, South African Republic, Germany, Sweden etc.
The key to Dr. Vorobyov's methodology lies within the examination and treatment of the patient?s mind, bringing the patient to a feeling of indifference towards the addictive substance, ultimately leading to a complete aversion or loathing.
Let's take a look at what this means in relation to a heroin addiction. An initial examination allows us to choose from a wide variety of methods the method of detox most suited to the given patient. At this stage the main goal of treatment is met, namely, the patient is freed from his addiction without pain, without depression ? without the terrifying withdrawal syndrome that usually accompany a break from such addiction. Neither appetite nor sleep, nor mood in general are affected due to the treatment. A fact which cannot fail to draw attention to itself and attract those seeking treatment.
As soon as tests show that the patient's organism is completely free of substances, work begins on the brain.? Especially as at this point in treatment the substance craving intensifies.
