Types of addiction that we treat

heading

Our team of experts at LORIJEN ADDICTION CENTER has been successfully treating addiction from heroin, cocaine, marijuana, ecstasy and other psychoactive substances, for over two decades.

In the past few years, highly efficient treatments for behavioral dependencies, such as problem gambling and internet, sex and video game addiction, have been developed.

By using a wide variety of methods (SMART RECOVERY program and other) we are able to adapt the treatment to individual needs of every patient, as well as to make personalized treatment plans that enable achieving long-term recovery.

signature treatment is the

The program is based on the
INTEGRATIVE APPROACH TO TREATING ADDICTION
We don’t treat just the single aspect of the disease,
we address the problem as a whole,
through 4 PHASES

I phase
DETOX

The first step in treating addiction is overcoming physical addiction. This phase can last 7 days and more, depending on the patient’s condition and type of addiction treated. We offer hospital and ambulantory detoxification. The first phase is concluded by introducing blockers and other medication that maintain abstinence.

II phase
CHANGING HABITS

Second phase is based on adoption of a healthy lifestyle and methods to prevent relapse: this phase is meant to provide psychological support to patients during the periods of psychological crisis i.e. right after physical detoxification.

III phase
RECONNECTING

3rd phase  consists of a long-term treatment during which the patients maintain abstinence with the support of key individuals. The patients are taught how to build healthy relationships with friends and people in their surroundings. The methodology is based on group therapy conducted between patients and assistants in treatment, over a period of 6 months, 2x per week.

IV phase
PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT

Aside from establishing the achieved progress, personal development is incredibly important for continuing the interrupted emotional, social and intellectual development. The aim of the IV phase of the program is prevention of relapse, psychological maturity, as well as growth and development of one’s personality.
