Rehabilitation Centre for Women
Psychosocial rehabilitation for women and mothers with children is a program created for women addicted to psychoactive substances. The therapeutic community provides necessary help in the process of healing, helps to change the habits of addicted women and encourages development of sobering skills.
We provide consultation on admission to our rehabilitation centre for women with children. For more information on the services provided, email or call.
With the help of our psychologists and social workers, clients learn to recognize their problems and look for solutions, to pursue a personal recovery and individual development. We put high emphasis on the importance of personal changes such as ability to control feelings and express them in a healthy manner, acquisition of personality development and self-esteem problems. Motivation for further rehabilitation is formed and strengthened.
Assessment of the client’s psychological condition, individual counseling, strengthening of motivation, relapse and crisis prevention classes, change in thinking and behavior, counseling of family members.
In group sessions, community members learn to identify with the disease, monitor their own and others’ condition, thinking, behavior and feelings, express them, express themselves and ask for help and support.
Development of work and social skills that help to live independently, integrate into society and encourage to look for a job.
Community members develop self-analytical skills: during the program of rehabilitation they are required to journal about changes in their thinking, behavior, emotional state, relationships with themselves, and others.
During these sessions, community members get acquainted with addictive diseases and their patterns, learn to recognize the signs of relapse and ways to avoid it.
Each client is assisted in maintaining or re-establishing social ties with his or her family members or close relatives, provided that it does not go against one’s interest for living a healthier, addiction free life. Family members also receive counseling on dealing with one’s addiction.
Social skills are developed, learning to resist the need to use psychoactive substances, managing feelings and expressing them, promoting personal development and self-esteem, as well as problem awareness, rebuilding family relationships and resolving conflicts and problems in the family.
The primary aim of such classes is to change the negative attitude of the addict to labor, which was formed during the period of psychoactive substance use, to help him to develop work skills and get used to daily work and job responsibilities.
A daily schedule helps the recovering person to get used to an orderly and healthy lifestyle, to develop punctuality and a sense of responsibility.
Admission & Rehabilitation
Learn about our male rehabilitation centre admission process and the process of rehabilitation in our centre.
A person wishing to enter the rehabilitation community must be sufficiently motivated to stop using any intoxicants, preferably after a course of detoxification. Clients for rehabilitation are accepted by the decision of the community.
Mandatory requirement for admission:
Vacancy (we currently have vacancies).
Motivation for rehabilitation (voluntary and reasonable decision of the applicant to stop using psychoactive substances).
Sobriety (the person must have stopped taking any psychoactive substances).
Medical certificate on the state of health (form No.27) that he is not suffering from active tuberculosis, acute infectious, somatic and other diseases that may pose a threat to the health of other people living in the institution.
Medical certificate with records of addiction.
Community voting (a new person is admitted by a mutual decision of the current community residents in a process of voting).
Each person admitted to the centre needs to have the following items upon the day of starting rehabilitation: documents confirming identity, employment book or unemployment certificate; thick journaling notebook and writing supplies; sports and work clothes; bedding set; personal hygiene products.
One of the goals of the rehabilitation community is to teach addicted people to take responsibility for their own behavior. The whole rehabilitation process is divided into certain phases, which provides an increasing responsibility of the healing person for his own behavior.
First phase (2 - 3 months) - first adaptation process into the community (non-contact phase), during which the client must refuse contact with relatives and friends, does not use the phone, does not go outside of the community (except in special cases of illness, under the supervision of senior clients or centre workers). During this phase, a person who has just started rehabilitation is unable to control his impulses and cravings for drugs and therefore cannot be responsible for many of his actions. All of these restrictions are intended to protect the client from dangerous contacts that may provoke his desire to re-use psychoactive substances. When a person begins to understand and adapt to the principles and values of community, learns to use specific methods of help and self-help offered by the community, and when analyzing his “drug” past, the community meeting considers his request for more responsibility and transfer to the second phase of the rehabilitation.
Second phase (4 months) includes limited contact, during which the client is allowed to leave the community for a short time and to communicate with relatives, but only under supervision of senior community members or staff and after discussing this with the community in advance. Since the beginning of phase two, the community resident has to take on more responsibilities - these are the responsibilities of the head community, as well as specific responsibilities that oblige him to be responsible for some parts of the household. In this way, community provides the greatest possible opportunities for work activities. During this phase, a person performs the main part of self-analysis - the analysis of his life, in which he examines in writing down all the factors that have made him vulnerable to psychoactive substances.
Third phase (4 months) provides the responsibility that allows you to leave the community on your own. With the consent of the community, it is possible to go home every other weekend. In this phase, a person has mastered the basic ways of self-help, knows how to avoid a relapse and can therefore be responsible for himself. He can supervise and train other members of the community, accompany them outside the community, as well as hold the position of a community elder and be responsible for the entire community.
Fourth phase is the contact phase (socialization and integration into society). This is the final stage during which an addicted person needs to acquire work skills that help him to find his place in society, to take responsibility for himself and his lives.
