Resident in narcology
Practicing in the specialty of narcology, it is important to go into the causes of addiction, paying attention to their treatment. Such a model of therapy is not always so self-evident. Stigmatization of mental illness, including addiction, is a major barrier to free client communication not only with physicians but also with friends and family. Due to prejudice and insecurity, a large part of the population avoids receiving medical help in the field of mental health. Therefore, there is an emphasis on trust, understanding and openness in the treatment process, as well as evidence-based therapies.
