Substance Rehabiliation

Substance Rehabiliation

A) Addiction process. Definitions and general reflections.

• How does someone become a drug-addict?

William Burroughs states that someone becomes a drug-addict without planning it. You are left to make an initial contact with the substance and the everyday routine automatically manages the rest. Others become easily addicted, others quickly. He becomes addicted because he does not have powerful motives towards another direction.

No one becomes accidentally a drug addict. A lot of reasons and a lot of factors are intermixed to shape the thinking of why a particular person, at a particular moment is prompted to use the substances. The spectrum of forms of drug addiction but also types of drugs addict is broad. That is why each case should be examined in each particularity and her uniqueness.

According to Olivenstein, director of centre Marmotan in Paris, one of the primary centers in Europe to deal with the problem of addiction, the addiction process could be described succinctly as a triangle that is constituted by the particular environment of the patient, the particular substance that he uses and the particular personality that he has. The combination of these parameters (substance, environment, personality) forms the dependence.
Substantially the addiction constitutes a new balance to the mental machine of the individual, a “solution” that the individual seeks, around which his behaviour is organised, his personality but also his pathology.

B) Therapeutic framework and communication with the patient.

• Type of treatment and the theoretical roots of the specific therapeutic framework.

In Lyrakou Clinic we offer the psychiatric and psychological evaluation of the patient so the rehabiliation program and the bodily purgation of drug-addiction is individualised depending on the particular bodily and psychological needs of each patient.
Our objective is the patient to be involved in a framework of mobilisation so that he can continue the treatment when coming out of the clinic.
Important part of the treatment is not only the pharmaceutical treatment but the general supporting framework that the clinic provides. In particular, the isolation of the patient from his environment, his protection from the omnipotence of addiction, the regulation of his natural situation, his bodily hygiene, constitute the primary and essential conditions.
As for the therapeutic plan it includes ergotherapy, individual and group psychotherapy, movement therapy, theatrical games, art therapy etc... The therapeutic interventions follow the theoretical framework of the 12 steps of psychodynamic - psychoanalytical direction and the knowledge based - behavioural psychotherapy.
