A therapeutic program of already proved effectiveness is applied in this clinic by a competent team of professionals in sociology and psychiatry. It is supported by an administrative team and service personnel that guarantee a rehabilitating stay and a physical and spiritual welfare of patients.
The treatment is divided into two parts—including a week of evaluation, adaptation and of clinical and sociological tests. During this period the patient is enrolled into the activities of the program in accordance with the individual peculiarities of his/her behavior. Later, there comes a period of treatment for the fulfillment of the objectives designed in the program. Here, some variants may be applied such as going out of the clinic for social intercourse at the right moment.

The conception of the program starts from a system of socio-corrective influence such as individual therapy, didactic therapy, group therapy, physical culture, ergotherapy and up-grading courses in accordance with patients’ individual necessities.

The clinic has a daily schedule which is part of its by-law. It starts at 8.00 AM and ends at 5.00 PM in the evening. This by-law is divided into two sections: a morning one and an afternoon section. Time to sleep comes at 11.00 PM.

The period of rehabilitation depends on the peculiarities of the sick one. Time ranges from a minimum of 97 days to a maximum of 165 days. The visits from relatives are approved by the therapists; and, they may stay with the patient if they do not interfere in the treatment.

The pay must be done in advance. The first delivery of $ 1,985.00 USD goes for the week of evaluation and $ 13,500.00 USD for the medical treatment.

The following services are not included within the package; that is why, they must be paid separately before the patient is admitted:
