WHY IS RASKRŠĆE DIFFERENT FROM ALL THE OTHER PROGRAMS
Beside Raskršće which has a full therapeutically structured rehabilitation program, with curriculum, psychotherapy, support groups and other ways of therapy (sport and work therapy), there are only shelters or so – called communes for addicts in our country. They are free since they do not require specialized staff, and therefore the addicts in the program do not go through essential transformation, but the whole “program” is based on isolation where the inmates work all day long believing that “time will do its own”, what is simply not true when it comes to addiction decease. In the communes/shelters like this there is no structured environment with necessary curriculum, group and individual work with inmates, personal psychotherapeutic work, support group “TURNING POINT” etc. all of which are led by specialized, trained and certified staff with 5 – 12 years experience in this field!
Every morning in Raskršće program there are group and personal lessons, designed to change a person’s way of thinking in order to give up on the drug. In the afternoon a team of psychologists and psychotherapists work with an individual to remove the real cause of the addiction problem. Psychotherapy groups teach the inmates how to change personal traits and develop decent relationships, while work therapy makes a former addict a person who learn how to acquire good working habits, and sport therapy teach them principles of a team work.
There is a big difference between a therapeutic – rehabilitation community and a commune/shelter. Parents should always inform themselves first to realize that isolation itself and physical work have NEVER been the solution for the problem of addiction and therefore they cannot remove the real causes of addiction. In order to expect a person never get back on drugs it is necessary to cover all the aspects through a single holistic rehabilitation program. The percentage of cured addicts in rehabilitation – therapeutic center Raskršće is the highest in the region, and this is because we met all the above differences.
Why loose and throw another several years of life to unsuccessful efforts! With a minimum of participation, there are much more chance for you to get your child back, cured forever!
