Addiction treatment in Turkey and the stages that the treatment process goes through
Treatment of addiction in Turkey, first of all, addiction is a behavioral strike and a disease related to the brain, where the addicted person gets used to using a specific substance or persevering in a certain habit that he cannot then get rid of voluntarily, despite his conviction before starting to use the substance that he can leave it whenever he wants. Usually, addiction begins as a result of the patient’s curiosity, since at a stage before using the substance, the patient experiences two feelings, namely curiosity and fear (curiosity that gives rise to the patient’s desire to try this substance and the fear that this person feels the danger and harm of this substance). If the person passed the stage of fear and decided to try the material, the curiosity motive would have overwhelmed fear. And a person, before he begins to use the substance, deludes himself that he can leave it whenever he decides to do so. In fact, this conviction begins to diminish little by little with the person’s use of that substance until the person finds himself at a stage where he cannot leave the narcotic substance alone.

Addiction treatment in Turkey
The cases of treatment for addicted people depend on many factors, including: the type of substance used, the dose that the person uses, the time period he began using this substance, and others. And the treatment mechanism may differ for people who agree to use a specific substance in the same amount and for the same period of time as well. Because addiction is a disease related to the person himself, and indirect use motives are important in determining the treatment mechanism, as well as the person’s will in the stages of addiction treatment is very important in getting rid of the disease. Add to that the person’s influence with the surrounding environment and the ability of the surrounding environment (family, friends and neighbors) to accommodate the person in the stages of addiction treatment. It is very important for the success of addiction treatment in Turkey and the person getting rid of addiction. In conclusion, the methods and methods of addiction treatment in Turkey and the stages that the addiction treatment process in Turkey passes through may differ from one person to another, even if the two use the same addictive substance.
Although the stages of addiction treatment in Turkey are going through, in general, patients agree in these following stages:
Deprivation period: This period is considered the most difficult period for an addicted person, but it is the basis for treatment. And where a patient is exposed to many physical and spiritual problems. Also, the patient’s feelings during that period are unbalanced between rise and fall and a positive and negative impact. It usually begins and continues until the end of the first month. Its importance lies in the fact that it helps reduce the patient’s desire to abuse the substance to a minimum, after which it is easy to get rid of addiction. And this period must take place under the supervision and follow-up of the medical staff. The patient needs to be under the eye and supervision of the medical staff 24 hours. Therefore, the patient’s presence in the hospital and his stay at this stage is very important.
The period of enthusiasm and euphoria in the patient: The patient feels much better, especially after his lack of desire is at the minimum that he can control himself. The physical and psychological problems begin to disappear, so the patient feels that he has improved and is completely and completely rid of addiction. This period lasts from the first month to the third. The patient can practice his hobby or activity, go to work and organize in his life.
The period of despair and boredom: the patient feels hopeless, tired, bored, and depressed, as well as feels poor order and gets used to the regularity of his life as if life has become an unbearable routine. The patient may have a longing to return to a life of addiction. Understanding the patient and the support provided to him at this stage is very basic and important. In this stage, psychological support from the family, relatives and friends is the most important component of the diagnosis’s recovery and assistance in its exit from this state and its non-return to its first state. And it is necessary at this stage to maintain communication with the medical staff who carried out the treatment process and follow the instructions given by them. This phase starts from the third month and ends around the sixth month.
The beginning of a new life period: the patient begins to recover from his illness and form a new life, and he can go about his life and its system smoothly. This stage is characterized by regularity of feeling and senses for the sick person. Where the patient begins to get rid of the irregularity of feelings that accompanied it in varying proportions in all previous periods. This stage usually begins after the first six months.
It should be noted that the durations given may differ from one person to another, as we have shown previously, but in general the stages that the addiction treatment process passes through in Turkey are the same. Therefore, the signs and symptoms associated with these stages must be paid more attention to than the specified time periods.
Medical and scientific approaches used in treating addiction in Turkey (medical addiction treatment methods):
Since ancient times, doctors have been interested in addiction and its treatment methods, and there are many ways and means used by medicine in treatment. With the development of medicine, methods of diagnosing diseases and knowledge of the real causes of diseases, methods of treatment for these diseases have evolved. Due to the multiplicity and overlap of the causes that lead to addiction, some medical and scientific approaches that are internationally approved and based on evidence and have proven successful in treating a very large segment of patients are applied. There are various approaches, including:
Individual psychotherapy: As a result of face-to-face personal interviews by psychiatrists and psychiatrists with the patient, a set of examinations are determined to help develop the correct treatment plan for the patient and identify some of the causes of addiction related to the addicted person himself. In all cases, it must be noted that these medical examinations alone are not sufficient. Rather, the person who recommended them must be a specialist in the field and have sufficient experience and experience to give such examinations.
These tests vary, including:
Computerized tests: COG, SPM, DAUF, NVLT, TOVA, MOXO
Projective examinations: Rorschach, Tat-Cat
Intelligence tests: Wisc-r, Wais, Cas
Other checks: MMPI, TCI, SCID 2, NPT, ASİ
Addiction group psychotherapy: The idea of group psychotherapy depends on the participation of several similar people in the same problem and their interaction with each other in one session instead of the patient’s participation in a single psychological treatment session. Doctors and psychotherapists will also participate in this session.
Interactive therapy group: In these group sessions, topics related to communication skills, recognizing anger and ways to deal with it, defining stress and ways to confront it, controlling impulses, developing emotional skills, and other topics are covered.
Drug treatment: The patient is given some treatments that reduce or reduce his desire to use the narcotic. And treatment is given after the addictive substance is known and the necessary tests are done. It should be noted that often drug therapy alone is not sufficient for the patient to recover from addiction, so other treatment methods must be used based on a treatment plan based on an accurate diagnosis of each patient’s condition.

Family training: Addiction is a disease that is not related to the addicted person alone, but affects his family as well. Therefore, the family must know the true cause of addiction and other indirect causes, because the family plays an important and essential role in the patient’s recovery and support in getting rid of the drug. In this program prepared for the family, they are informed of what to do with the patient, and discuss and discuss solutions that can contribute to treating the patient and getting rid of addiction.
