Outpatient drug treatment -

Drug problems?

Does your loved one or do you use drugs or other psychoactive substances?

“I can always quit…”, “it’s so little”, “I’ll quit myself…”

And what's next?

Family problems? Aggression? Scandals? Insomnia? Anxiety?

Low mood?

How can I help myself or a loved one?

With any of these questions, as well as any other questions related to the use of drugs and other psychoactive substances, you can contact qualified doctors of the outpatient departments of St. Petersburg State Budgetary Health Institution "GNB" and get both an answer and the necessary assistance. Outpatient departments are located in every district of the city and state-certified doctors receive both free of charge, with the establishment (if necessary) of dispensary observation, and anonymously (for a fee).

Who can apply? Do you have to be a drug addict to convert?

Absolutely different people come to us, of different age categories and wealth, but they all have one thing in common - these are problems of a different nature that have arisen as a result of the use of psychoactive substances. Assistance can be completely anonymous. To receive all the necessary assistance, it is not necessary to be registered in St. Petersburg or in the area where the unit is located, since treatment can be provided for a fee.

Is it better to contact a public institution than a private one?

Turning to us, you will not have to doubt the profile and qualifications of our specialists. In each of our divisions, qualified, state-certified doctors and psychologists, who have received a specialization in narcology, systematically improve their knowledge at advanced training courses and conferences, conduct appointments. Only modern and certified medicines and methods with proven effectiveness are used for treatment. Only specialists will explain what needs to be done to the patient or his relatives in order to ensure the best result of treatment, explain the causes and consequences of the formation of addictions. And without eliminating the causes of the disease, it is impossible to eliminate the disease.

If you apply to the district dispensary, will they immediately register you?

Establishment of dispensary observation, i.e. “registration” occurs only with the consent of the patient himself for treatment with the execution of “voluntary informed consent”. It is possible to refuse dispensary observation by issuing a refusal of medical intervention.

Is it better to be treated in an inpatient or outpatient setting?

In the case of drug addiction, it is often not only outpatient or only inpatient treatment. Treatment is carried out in 2 stages. On the first one (removal of "withdrawal") - inpatient treatment is often preferable, on the second one (aftercare and rehabilitation) - outpatient. Outpatient treatment allows you to undergo treatment as comfortably as possible without changing your usual way of life, including without interruption from work and daily activities. For many of our patients, this is the determining factor. In cases of indications (severe course of the disease, severe state of health, malignant course of addiction, the need for round-the-clock medical supervision, etc.), inpatient treatment is necessary. Inpatient treatment is indicated for severe withdrawal syndrome (pronounced "breaking"), concomitant diseases, low socialization of the patient and weak patient motivation for treatment and refusal of PAS. To simplify, completely outpatient treatment is possible with the so-called "soft drugs", with a mild course of the disease.

How do I get help and how is the treatment going?

All you have to do to call for help is come to our office during office hours. To do this, on the site you can choose the nearest unit to you and it is advisable to make an appointment with a doctor by phone. At the appointment of our specialist, after a short examination and the establishment of a preliminary diagnosis, you will learn the recommendations of the doctor in order to eliminate the causes of the problems that brought you to us as quickly and efficiently as possible. The doctor will explain the features of providing assistance, ways to receive assistance in our institution. You can receive treatment either at the expense of the budget (in the case of registration in St. Petersburg and in the area where the unit is located) or for a fee. The doctor, taking into account exactly your health characteristics, will draw up an individual plan for examination and treatment using modern methods and medicines with proven effectiveness. If indications for inpatient treatment are identified, they will be referred to a hospital, which is also part of the structure of our institution. If necessary, he will refer you to specialists of various profiles so that your treatment with us is as effective as possible.

Principles of drug addiction treatment

But what if the patient himself does not realize the need for treatment?

Addiction treatment is purely voluntary. Those. The consent of the patient is required for the provision of medical care.
Psychotherapists and psychologists have developed and are putting into practice, based on modern ideas about the causes of the development and maintenance of the disease, a program to help families where patients do not realize the need for treatment. In the process of passing it by relatives, indirectly, patients are motivated for treatment and refusal to take drugs.

Drug addiction treatment: drug addiction treatment in Moscow

I tried spice and got hooked. When the parents found out, they immediately sent him for treatment. The clinic treated me very kindly. They quickly and clearly explained how quickly I could lose my health. Now I understand how careless and stupid I was. I am very grateful to the doctors and my family.


This spring, a tragedy happened in my family. For a long time and constantly drinking, her husband began to become an inveterate drunkard catastrophically quickly. This threatened the loss of a job, the loss of everything that was earned by a long and successful service - authority, respect from colleagues, friends, family, and most importantly, physical and mental health. We turned to the Unika+ clinic to get him out of the binge. They put the spouse in the clinic and prescribed a course of treatment. He has not been drinking for three months, he is in a good mood, he fulfills all the prescriptions of our doctor. Many thanks to the specialists of the clinic!


A close friend suffered from drinking bouts for quite a long time - several years. There was no one closer to me. His wife left a long time ago, he did not communicate with the children. Barely managed to persuade to be treated. They called a doctor to the house, who advised to go to the clinic. I had to be transported to the clinic by hospital transport, accompanied by a narcologist. Thanks to the staff. Treatment has not yet been completed, but strong progress is visible.


I am very grateful to the Lord God, my family and the clinic staff. It happened - I became a different person. But already at work they threatened with dismissal, and my wife endured my drinking with the last of her strength. They brought me here in a semi-conscious state. He left as a cheerful and self-confident person.


My niece is addicted to spice. Parents didn't notice right away. Were in shock. She persuaded me to go to the clinic. The doctors persuaded me to lie down, clean myself, and a psychologist, Safarov Rustam (a specialist and just a good sympathetic person), joined in the process. After discharge, she herself asked to be like an outpatient monthly program. Everyone is happy. The girl was cured, thank you!


For a long time I did not want to admit to myself that I was addicted to alcohol. We often celebrate birthdays at work. I did not want to break away from the team. And rolled down the slope. Schoolchildren began to be ashamed of me. The wife signed up for a family consultation at the clinic. Finally, I came to my senses and realized: this should not continue. He stayed in the clinic for 5 days, and went on an outpatient basis for 3 days. Many thanks to the staff - Natalya Aleksandrovna Koshel, Rustam Zelemkhanovich and all the junior staff for their professionalism and goodwill. The conditions are excellent.


Wonderful clinic, attentive, pleasant staff, very helpful to people who find themselves in a difficult situation. The conditions in the clinic are comfortable. I express my gratitude to Mikhail Vasilievich, he is a doctor from God, I recommend!


I would like to express my gratitude for the warm attitude of the doctors and staff to our patients, I am very grateful for the comfort and good care of my brother, whom we sent to you for treatment. Many thanks to his doctor Natalya Anatolyevna, for saving me, you give a second life. Thank you!


Thank you very much to the clinic for the individual approach to my son and professional treatment. I also want to thank the doctor Krasilnikov Dmitry Sergeevich. The son entered the clinic in poor condition, drinking alcohol for about 2 months somewhere. We received urgent professional and psychological assistance. We are 100% satisfied with the clinic. We will recommend you to our friends.


I want to thank the doctors of the Unika+ clinic! Now that I'm all right, I want to leave a good review. In short: the first days I wondered why there is such a kind, homely attitude, it even surprised me. But the doctors really penetrate our problems, help, talk, I did not feel flawed, there was a desire to live. I completed the full course - 21 days. The days passed not so painfully, because you go for walks without any problems, talk with psychologists, get treatment and already start making plans. In general, undergo treatment and restore your life!


I am an alcoholic, yes I abused alcohol. Thanks to my relatives for getting me here on time, I would not have been able to stop it all myself. I have not regretted a single day that I went here for treatment. The experts were very helpful. Special thanks to psychiatrist Dadashev R.Kh. The doctor became like a family to me, as a person she is just wonderful, it was a pleasure to talk with her. She listened to me, asked questions, gave advice. If you want 100% results, then go see her!


Thank you very much Dr. Saakov! I visited Alexander Arsenievich for the third time. His professionalism is visible, a very competent doctor, he always listens and gives competent recommendations, I am pleased to communicate with him! I trust my doctor, not for a second doubting the recommendations and prescribed medications, thank you!


I was treated at this clinic because I had problems with alcohol. There were problems with my husband, he cheated on me and only alcohol helped me. I thought so then. As a result, my husband brought me to the clinic. When I entered the clinic, it was scary. But the doctor was very kind and told me everything and reassured me. They put me on drips, the medical staff here is excellent. The psychologist Anatoly Maletsky came to me, I am very grateful to him for the psychological support. Many thanks to the clinic and the doctor.


I want to say a huge thank you to all the medical staff, everyone treated our situation with understanding.
