TOP 15 alcohol coding methods

Trying to get rid of alcohol addiction, people come to the option of coding. Which alcohol coding method is best for a particular person? What is suitable, and what is better to refrain from? The following types of coding are distinguished: psychological effects, medication, neurolinguistic programming, options using folk methods and herbs, methods of mixing various components into food and drinks that cause an aversion to alcohol.

Dovzhenko coding method

Dovzhenko’s coding method for alcohol is widely used not only in Russia, but throughout the world. The success of this technique is approaching 75–80%. This indicator is very high. This method is rightly credited with qualification - the most effective. The essence of the technique is reduced to a hypnotic effect on the subconscious of a sick person. The doctor creates certain psychological attitudes, as a result of which the alcoholic ceases to feel a craving for alcohol.

Physical dependence is overcome in 2-3 months. This period is enough for the body, cells, organs and systems to reorganize into a healthy lifestyle. But psychological dependence in itself does not go away and does not disappear. That is why a person who has not drank a year or more, can again break. Treatment of alcoholism is fraught with relapse. This is feared by the relatives and close people of the alcoholic. After all, after the breakdown, the dependence grows stronger and becomes even more stable.

Dovzhenko’s method in this regard is the best option, since the method implies indifference to alcohol. An alcoholic does not have a craving for alcohol after applying the technique. He is indifferent to alcohol. It is very important for an alcoholic to be able to drink whenever he wants, but not to break into a binge.

Stages of applying the Dovzhenko method:

  • The positive attitude of the patient is very important. He himself must want to get rid of a bad habit. It is necessary not only his consent, but also a real desire to become a healthy person. To do this, you may need additional help and support from psychologists who are able to convince the patient of the need for treatment.
  • The period of sobriety. Coding by Dovzhenko is used only on a sober head. The required threshold is at least one week without alcohol. Better if there is more. The body needs to cleanse itself of alcohol as much as possible. The brain must be clean to maximize the effect. It is also therefore important that the consent and desire of the alcoholic to break free from addiction.
  • Several series of hypnosis are performed only by a specially trained and trained doctor. Self-medication, despite the presence of video tutorials on the Internet, is not worth it. Depending on the timing of alcoholism, the degree of dependence, the willpower of a particular person, the number of sessions that are necessary to obtain a satisfactory result is established. For someone, 5-7 sessions are enough. Others will need more than 12 doctor visits.
  • The pleasure center in the brain stops responding to alcohol irritation. The gag reflex is also absent. A person simply becomes indifferent to alcohol, craving disappears and the very reason why a person went into a binge. Over time, the correct functions of the brain are restored, and the body produces serotonin already, as a reaction, to tasty food or a pleasant company.

The Dovzhenko method is one of the coding methods for alcoholism, but it is very effective. Many couples have gained a second life thanks to this technique. The main criterion for the success of treatment is the desire of an alcoholic to get rid of harmful addiction.

Neuro-linguistic programming

NLP coding has become widespread around the world. A simple and affordable method of treatment can be used independently if you purchase a course of audio programs. You can apply this method without the knowledge of the patient, especially during periods of sleep. To encode a person from drinking is enough to change his view of alcohol. People who are addicted to alcohol cannot imagine their life without alcohol.

Over time, they themselves accustomed themselves to enjoy only the effects of alcohol. They are not interested in food or travel, the personality is gradually degrading to the state of animal reflexes. People lose their personality. The pleasure center produces serotonin - a hormone of joy only when irritating the receptors with ethanol.

As in the case of any other dependence, the dose increases over time, since the previous amount becomes small due to the habituation of the body and the adaptation of cells. Modern methods of treatment affect the brain, changing its settings. The human brain is susceptible to repetitive information. If a child often hears the same song on the radio when traveling in a car, he plays it unconsciously, even if he does not understand the word. This is how the brain and an adult work.

NLP encoding method for alcohol dependence:

  • Efficiency increases if a person is sober. Only a pure brain that is not fogged by narcotic effects can respond positively to external influences.
  • Periods of sleep. Audio programs include during sleep, even without the knowledge of the patient. In the phase of morning sleep, efficiency increases, since during this period the brain is maximally open and defenseless. Often this procedure is carried out in specialized clinics, where the dynamics of the waves of brain activity are monitored using sensors, determining the best period of time for psychological impact and the creation of blocks.
  • The method is good because you can create absolutely any installation: from a complete rejection of the use of alcoholic drinks to indifference to them, depending on the degree of alcoholism and the client’s desire.

In many countries, NLP is considered illegal when used in advertising and as a marketing move, which indicates the effectiveness of the methodology. For therapeutic purposes, neurolinguistic programming began to be used back in the 60s. In order not to violate the integrity of the psychological personality of a person, it is better to trust professionals. They are able to diagnose and identify weaknesses and strengths of a person.

The classic coding method for alcoholism is hypnosis. The widespread occurrence of hypnosis elements led to the fact that the military was deliberately trained to confront this technique. This option is so good. Not all people are hypnosed equally. Some are more sensitive, others not. Women due to hormonal background and features of the functioning of the brain are more susceptible to hypnotic effects than men. Therefore, this method is ideal for them.

Men are very sensitive to changes in physiology. Vomiting and disgust are a critical factor in deciding whether to drink or not to drink. Women suffer from toxicosis during pregnancy, discomfort during menstruation, pain during childbirth - their body is able to withstand the feeling of nausea when drinking ethanol-containing drinks. But men are unaccustomed to this, so hypnosis to create an aversion to alcohol is extremely effective for them.

What conditions are needed:

  • Again the state of sobriety of the patient. On a drunken head, hypnosis can break the connections in the brain. Therefore, a person must be sober. If we talk about violent methods of treatment, then plasmapheresis is used in hospitals to clean the blood of toxins and ethanol compounds. And only after that hypnosis is prescribed.
  • The predisposition of a person to hypnotic effects. Depending on this, the degree of success of the method will fluctuate.
  • Confidence in the doctor. The more a person trusts the one who conducts hypnosis, the more open his brain is for exposure. Therefore, it is recommended to choose a doctor who will satisfy the patient. It is better to initially conduct several series of meetings and discussions during which the alcoholic is convinced of his own safety and the best intentions of the attending physician.

The hypnotic effect is good because the body is not physically exposed to any medication that causes vomiting when ethanol is used together. The human brain tunes in to other ways of life. Often an alcoholic cannot imagine life without alcohol, as this is the only way to relax and have fun. The centrality of the life of the addicted person is fixated on the next dose of alcohol.

When a person goes to work or does housework, the only thing he thinks about is that it will all end and he will be able to get drunk in the evening. An alcoholic cannot stop. He has no stopper. Such people drink as long as consciousness is maintained. Hypnosis blocks nerve impulses in the brain that cause pleasure. Therefore, there is no point in drinking. Over time, the victim seeks other ways to enjoy life. And finds healthier alternatives such as sports or hobbies.

Drug coding

Almost 100% of the coding method for alcoholism is medication. A drug is sewn under the patient’s skin, which causes vomiting if the alcoholic tries to drink alcohol. Drinking is simply physically impossible. Even if a person drinks, then the entire portion of ethanol with vomiting will come back. Intoxication is physically impossible.

This technique is a violent method that is still used. There are injections, pills, droppers. After cases of delirium tremens, when patients enter the clinic, they are offered the Torpedo stitching method. The operation takes a little time. An incision is made on the skin and a tablet is sewn there. It is impossible to get it yourself at home.

The action can last up to a year. This time is enough for a person to realize the harmfulness of a habit and already consciously decide not to abuse alcohol anymore. One of the varieties of Disulfiram preparations. A simple and effective way to sober up an alcoholic and bring him to his senses. Disulfiram blocks the production of enzymes that break down ethanol.

Namely, enzymes allow you to experience intoxication. The liver produces enzymes that break down ethanol into water and other derivatives that can excrete the kidneys. These compounds enter the brain with blood flow, where they disrupt electrical impulses between neurons, affecting the pleasure center in the brain.

The combined use of ethanol and disulfiram:

  • Dizziness, headaches, fainting. Unpleasant conditions in which you want to lie down and fall asleep, and not continue the holiday.
  • Nausea and bouts of vomiting. The body, realizing that it is not able to cope with the breakdown of ethanol, sends a signal to the brain that poisoning and severe intoxication are occurring, and therefore vomiting occurs. Sometimes it is so strong that you have to seek help from a doctor to prevent dehydration.
  • Leaps in pressure and heart rate. An ambiguous reaction of the body leads to an unstable state.

Disulfiram is an effective coding method. With its use, an alcoholic simply cannot drink physically. One of the disadvantages of this method is the violent path. After the drug expires, the person again returns to a bad habit. Disulfiram causes vomiting, which is uncomfortable for humans. Therefore, when using this drug, the effectiveness is almost 100%.

Popular coding methods

The capital has a wide range of methods for treating alcohol dependence. But in the outback there is no such diversity, but there is a problem of drunkenness. Therefore, they fight it with the methods of the forefathers. Medicinal teas, fees, infusions and decoctions, honey and bee venom, mushrooms. All of these tools are similar to drug coding. They cause an aversion to alcohol. A person is not able to drink alcohol. Widespread mushroom dung beetle, which in its taste is no different from ordinary mushrooms.

Mushroom dung beetle

The mushroom grows in the forests. Very expressive appearance will not allow to confuse it with another look. Gather mushroom fresh and strong. Dried for future use, fried and boiled for consumption. The fungus contains enzymes that block the production of substances that break down alcohol.

That is why the alcoholic experiences vomiting. You can use it only when sober. The fungal enzymes are absorbed into the blood and remain in the body for up to a week. It is for this period that the mushroom guarantees the drunkard sobriety. After the period has expired, you can repeat the dishes with the use of the mushroom.

Teas, herbs and decoctions

Thyme, bearberry, hoof root, St. John's wort, fireweed - all these medicinal plants are rich in enzymes and nutrients that heals the body, helping to fight addiction. Cool broths and infusions are drunk according to a certain system as a cure for alcoholism. Efficiency is tested by time and depends on the susceptibility of the organism of a particular person. Infusions of herbs on vodka lead to a stable disgust of a person with respect to ethanol.

Honey and bees

Honey is a healthy food rich in vitamins. But the bees, injecting poison subcutaneously, are used as a medicine. Bee venom, in the absence of allergic reactions, can not kill a person, but can cause discomfort: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, increased heart rate.

In this state, the body tries to get rid of any toxins, including ethanol. Therefore, if 3-5 bees are planted on the skin, then drinking alcohol will become impossible for at least a week, which is successfully used by healers.

Coding from alcoholism is physiological and psychological. Hypnosis methods are widespread due to the longer and more stable effect. People learn to live anew. They have new hobbies and attitudes. The blocks in the brain work forever, so the person concerned has to fight and make efforts to maintain sobriety in the future.

Medication coding gives 100% effect immediately. But after the action of the drug ends, the percentage of relapses is very high. And few agree to a second treatment. Since the side effect of disulfiram in the form of nausea, vomiting, arrhythmias and shortness of breath is notably pleasant. Therefore, this method, although still used in medicine, does not consider it particularly successful and is used in extreme cases.

What is coding?

The coding for alcoholism is aimed, first of all, to ensure that the patient has lost the physical and psychological desire to drink, the elimination of the painful craving for alcohol.

In some cases, the patient is encouraged that he will die from alcohol - this affects only the most suggestible subjects. A few centuries ago, a kind of coding of alcoholics was used by clergy: a drunkard gave a vow that he would not drink, was afraid of God's anger.

There are many coding methods for alcoholism, which one is better - doctors have not come to a consensus. Every year there are more and more new ways of coding effectively against alcoholism.

Laser coding

Laser coding is one of the most effective treatment methods in recent years, for the rejection of any alcoholic beverages. Laser rays have beneficial effects on the bioactive points of the human body, reflexogenic places, block the centers responsible for alcohol, some other types of addictions.

Coding acts on the subconscious - gives a clear statement on the complete prohibition of alcoholic beverages. In parallel with this, there is a general recovery, the restoration of the patient's undermined health. The method can be used in parallel with drug therapy.

Magnetic laser blood therapy

With this coding technique from alcoholism, simultaneous exposure to laser and magnetic radiation is carried out. Strengthening the action of each other, they positively affect the patient’s body, normalizing all body functions. Craving for alcohol is almost disappearing. The strength of the effect depends on the severity of the disease, the method is almost safe.

Hypnosis encoding is a psychotherapeutic encoding method that has already become a “classic” coding for alcoholism, known since the nineteenth century. It is based on instilling into the patient disgust, indifference to alcohol. Absolute contraindications for such therapy are schizophrenia, severe mental disorders.

Such coding is carried out using:

  1. Neuro-linguistic programming - the human psyche is gradually introduced into a positive, joyful state. For the success of such therapy, several sessions are performed.
  2. Erickson’s hypnosis - the patient is introduced into a “borderline” state, the middle between wakefulness and sleep, and the doctor inspires him to refrain from drinking.
  3. Hypnosuggestive therapy - at first the patient talks with the doctor, they establish contact. Then comes a hypnosis session, the outcome of which depends on the general level of suggestibility of the patient.

Method Dovzhenko

Therapy by A.R. Dovzhenko is based on the suggestion with the help of hypnosis and the psychophysical effects of the negative regarding the use of alcoholic beverages. The installation code for a sober lifestyle. The coding "holds" from one year to fifteen, but to consolidate the effect, a second session is sometimes required.

Rozhnov Method

Treatment by B.E. Rozhnova is based on the concept of emotional stress. Here, emotional therapeutic suggestion, clarification is used, and after - a hypnosis session in which a negative reaction to alcohol is instilled, an aversion to its taste, smell. The method is extremely effective if carried out with the participation of specialists.

Torpedo Coding

Torpedo encoding - "prohibitive" method. The active substance is disulfiram. The essence of this method: treatment is carried out using intravenous injection or suturing of the most effective drug into the muscle.

At home, treatment with tablets is allowed. In parallel with the patient take a receipt that he is familiar with the consequences of alcohol intake, which may be in the process. They say to those who are especially suggestible: if you drink, you die. For clarity, the patient is immediately given about twenty grams of vodka to drink - symptoms of intolerance appear immediately.

Sewing Esperal

This coding for alcohol is called by many the most effective - a drug based on disulfiram gradually "dissolves" in the human body over one to five years. The tablets are sewn into the buttock area or under the scapula in a medical facility, taken at home, and the medicine is also used as injections.

The coding procedure by Esperal assumes that alcohol will not enter the body in any form - you can not even use sweets with liquor, alcohol pharmacy tinctures, kvass, fermented juices. Five days before the start of treatment, refusal of alcoholic and low alcohol drinks is necessary.


These are modern psychopharmacological methods with which the patient is able to give up alcohol for a period of several months to two to three years. Drugs are administered intravenously.

They are considered harmless, but drinking alcohol during their action gives a very “tough" reaction - not only nausea occurs, but also fainting, arrhythmia, and breathing problems. The patient understands: it is better not to take alcohol. Such treatment can be carried out a maximum of three times - then it becomes completely ineffective.

Delfison injections

The highest efficiency when using Delphison is observed in those who themselves want to quit addiction. The drug is administered intramuscularly by injection, it lasts up to six months, during which it is recommended to conduct psychotherapy aimed at suggesting to the patient that his life will be better without alcohol.

When using any amount of alcohol after encoding, suffocation occurs, accompanied by a fear of death.

This drug is recommended to be coded to young patients, middle-aged people. It is administered parenterally or intramuscularly. Before use, it is required to “clear” the body of alcohol by completely abandoning it or using special means. Aquilong Depot is valid for up to five years. Voluntary patient consent for coding is required.

The drug eliminates excessive craving for alcohol, helps to wean it quite easily. It is injected, intramuscularly, it lasts 20 days, after which the injection should be repeated. The medicine improves the psychological state of the patient, gently calms. Alcohol intoxication at the time of encoding is unacceptable.

The active substance - naltrexone, blocks the receptors responsible for the enjoyment of drinking alcohol. Intended for monthly administration, since it is valid for no more than four weeks. Intramuscularly or eaten in tablets. At the beginning of treatment it is forbidden to drink alcohol. Before use, consultation with your doctor is required.


In addition to coding, there are other, time-tested, methods of treating alcoholism. Acupuncture affects specific points on the body, in this case located on the auricles.

With the help of it, the pathological attraction to alcohol is suppressed, withdrawal symptoms are relieved, the general condition of the body, psyche improves. It can be combined with other methods of therapy for alcoholism, taking nootropics. Treatment is incompatible with certain medications; only a doctor can prescribe it after a preliminary examination.

Brain Electroneurostimulation

Many years ago, doctors believed that nerve cells do not recover at all, and that they are destroyed very intensively in an alcoholic, which negatively affects his condition. Transcranial electroneurostimulation, or TPP, helps to “dump” a negative program from the brain, inspire complete freedom from alcoholism, lay the foundation for the most sober lifestyle, and helps restore damaged neurons.

Psychotherapeutic methods are combined with a weak electromagnetic effect on certain points, relaxing music, programming the refusal of alcohol for a certain period - at least six months. Sometimes the patient is given a placebo at the same time - a normal saline solution, under the guise of a coding drug, which enhances the psychological coding.

Modern methods

Most varieties of new treatments are improved old ones. A universal tool that will completely help everyone, the best method, has not yet been invented.

The most commonly used in modern time:

  • chemical coding combined with hypnosis,
  • detoxification measures followed by social recovery,
  • hardware therapy, combined with the use of various traditional medicine,
  • group or individual therapy with a complete rejection of harmful interaction with the old (drinking) social circle,
  • various psychotherapeutic methods of coding for alcohol dependence.

Pros and cons of coding

The “instant” coding for alcoholism is quite dangerous in itself - the alcoholic’s body has adapted to alcohol for a long time, and it will take some time to rebuild.

Positive aspects of the encoding:

  • prolonged aversion to alcohol,
  • sober lifestyle at least for a while,
  • normalization of physical, mental state,
  • coding is much cheaper than fixing the consequences of drinking alcohol,
  • You can encode anonymously, all at once.

  • the strictest ban on drinking any alcohol-containing substances,
  • the coding will end sooner or later, the person will start drinking again,
  • in some cases, treatment has no effect,
  • almost every effective method has serious contraindications for health reasons,
  • depending on the chosen method, duration of therapy, the patient can be placed in a hospital in one of the drug treatment clinics,
  • negative side effects.

Possible consequences

Information on the consequences is contradictory. Depending on the coding method, they are different from the adversity. Severe consequences are due to:

  • drinking alcohol
  • incorrect treatment method,
  • excess dosage of a drug substance,
  • non-compliance with the rules for caring for the place where the drug was administered,
  • individual intolerance to a specific therapy,
  • ignoring concomitant mental and somatic diseases.

The consequences for the encoded can be all sorts of:

  • nausea, dizziness, increased pressure immediately after encoding,
  • indigestion, headache the first days after coding,
  • mental disorders,
  • brain problems
  • damage to the kidneys, liver,
  • abscess at the injection site or hem;
  • impaired memory, sleep.


Alcoholism is not completely treated, unless the alcoholic himself wants it. It is never too late to encode, but for many this is a “tough” problem in psychological terms. After applying the majority of treatment methods, a person’s desire to drink decreases, and it becomes possible to start a new sober life.

A non-alcoholic lifestyle should be maintained, excluding people who drink alcohol from the social circle. It is necessary to do sports, favorite work, interesting hobbies.

It is also recommended to eat right, spend more time in nature, with your family. What method of coding from alcoholism will turn out to be the best, most effective, no one knows - in the most difficult cases you will have to use several of them in turn.

Do you still think that it is impossible to cure alcoholism?

Judging by the fact that you are reading these lines now, the victory in the fight against alcoholism is not on your side yet.

And you already thought to be encoded? It is understandable, because alcoholism is a dangerous disease that leads to serious consequences: cirrhosis or even death. Pain in the liver, a hangover, health problems, work, personal life. All these problems are familiar to you firsthand.

What is alcohol coding?

To eliminate a socially significant problem, several coding methods have been developed. Their action is such that the alcoholic develops a conditioned reflex - a negative reaction to taking alcohol. After the encoding, the drinker at the psychological level is uncomfortable, because the craving for drink remains, but you can’t drink. In order to permanently get rid of alcohol dependence, it is necessary to find out the cause of the disease, therefore, after a physical refusal to drink, it is important to cure the psyche. Any kind of encoding prevents the use of alcohol, but does not eliminate it.


Elena Malysheva: “In our time, alcoholism, as a disease, has become very young. Often, it’s young people who are destroying their future and doing irreparable harm to their health. An effective remedy will help to cope with the problem.

Mechanism of action

What are the methods of coding for alcoholism and how they work, you need to tell every drinking person. Specialists who in one way or another block the craving for alcohol, are sure that each patient needs an individual approach. A method that eliminates the dependence of one is often completely ineffective for the other. Each technique has its own mechanism of action, but all of them are based on psychological suggestion, in which the craving for alcohol is suppressed.

During treatment, in one way or another, the doctor acts on the patient’s subconscious, after which he becomes immune to alcohol. Sometimes one session is enough for a person to stop drinking for a long time, but there is one caveat - you need to withstand from 3 to 20 days without alcohol, and not everyone can do this. After the procedure, the alcoholic does not enjoy drinking and the meaning of drinking disappears.


That's what 45-year-old Anna says in an interview for 7 magazine “Alcoholism is being treated! From a drunken drunk, my husband has finally turned into a golden man! »Reader recommendsseoh>

Types of alcohol coding

Before being encoded, you need to choose the right technique. You should know that any way to get rid of drunkenness is voluntary. Without the consent of the person, the doctor and relatives are not allowed to have a hypnotic effect, to sew in medications or add any medicine to the alcoholic’s food - this is prohibited by law. Today, there are three officially recognized methods:

  1. Drug treatment. Narcologists use drugs that cause either the lack of effect from the drunk alcohol or the complete intolerance of alcohol. Treatment involves taking tablets, suturing alkoblockers, injecting ethanol inhibitors.
  2. Hypnosis. For encoding, group or individual hypnotherapy is used. There are many techniques. All of them were developed by individual authors, so they are often kept secret. Two main types of hypnosis are performed in different variations: directive and hidden.
  3. Psychotherapy. Various systems of influence on the human mental perception are used. There are several ways: the author’s Malkin’s technique, Rozhnov’s psychotherapeutic method, Dovzhenko’s coding, and others, less well-known.
  4. Hardware coding. Physiotherapeutic methods are used to eliminate alcohol dependence. Among them: laser exposure, hyperthermic method, convulsive and electropulse therapy.

Drug coding for alcohol dependence

The most common treatment for chronic alcoholism is medication. It is used in state narcological dispensaries, private clinics and hospitals. The popularity of the technique lies in the ability to get rid of the addiction in the shortest possible time. The use of an alkoblocker gives a quick effect, and the effect lasts differently, depending on the method, dose and form of administration of the drug, as well as on the individual characteristics of the human body.

The disadvantages of the medical technique include the appearance of dangerous situations: if a person still takes alcohol in search of endorphins, then this may cost him his life. Pros of treatment:

  • suitable for the treatment of any stage of alcoholism,
  • the only way to treat an overdose of alcohol, poisoning with alcohol substitutes and delirium tremens (alcohol delirium),
  • effective for preventing relapse of the disease, with maintenance therapy,
  • the availability of drug administration techniques, the availability of drugs in a pharmacy,
  • high assortment of administration techniques and dosage forms.

Inhibitors of Opioid Receptors of the Brain

Opioid receptors of the brain are responsible for the formation of euphoria when intoxicated. They can release special substances if they are in a free state. Inhibitors (competitors) are able to bind to opioid receptors and protect them from the effects of ethyl alcohol. As a result of their use, a person does not receive the usual euphoria when taking the next dose of alcohol, which makes drinking completely pointless.

The active substance of these drugs is naltrexone. Inhibitors of opioid receptors of the brain are available in different dosage forms: prolonged capsules, tablets, injectable solutions. The most famous representatives of this pharmacological group are drugs:

  • Antaxon
  • Prodetoxone
  • Revia,
  • Naloxone
  • Narcanti
  • Narcan
  • Vivitrol.

Many modern pills and drops for alcohol addiction are recommended for over-the-counter holidays.


Drug coding techniques for alcoholism offer another way to stop drinking - taking drugs that give a strong toxic effect after taking alcohol-containing drinks. The mechanism of action of these drugs is similar to the symptoms of alcohol intoxication, which are manifested several times stronger. During toxicotherapy, the enzyme systems of the body are blocked, which neutralize the toxins of the metabolism of ethyl alcohol. Even with minimal consumption of ethanol-containing drinks, incompatibility mechanisms will be activated.

After drinking, a person will feel all the symptoms of poisoning the body, which will discourage the desire to take alcohol again. The method of drug administration is selected individually, which depends on the type and stage of alcoholism. In an acute state, Naltrexone tablets are prescribed, which allows you to maintain the desired dosage of the drug in the patient's blood. In the remission stage or to maintain the patient during treatment, subcutaneous suturing, intramuscular injection with gel-like substances or prolonged capsules of Disulfiram or its analogs is performed.


What drugs are used

Drug coding methods for alcoholism will not help to get rid of addiction forever. If a person wants to stop drinking, then during the duration of the drug he will have time to improve his health, regain his strength, regain the respect of relatives and colleagues, feel the difference between sober life and unbridled drunkenness. In the future, willpower will help him get rid of alcoholism.

In the usual form, drugs for alcoholism are harmless to humans. They cause severe poisoning, headache, arrhythmia and other negative reactions of the body only after interaction with ethanol. A prerequisite for any treatment is the patient’s full knowledge of the results of the procedure and the patient’s determination to take responsibility for the consequences. Below is a list of the most popular drugs that are used with the drug coding method for alcoholism.

Anna Gordeeva, 45 years old: “Alcoholism can be cured even with poor heredity. Convinced first hand! ”Seoh>

Torpedo and Esperal

The French drug, produced in the form of tablets for oral use and in ampoules for intravenous or subcutaneous administration of Esperal (Teturam) in the presence of alcohol, turns into poison. Symptoms of poisoning appear immediately after taking alcohol. A person begins a hangover syndrome in the form of tachycardia, blood pressure rises, vomiting begins, and nausea begins. The body's reaction is so strong that the drinker develops an aversion to the taste and smell of alcohol.

Torpedo - coding through subcutaneous suturing of drugs created on the basis of disulfiram (Esperal, Antinol, Aquilong Depot, Binostim, Stopetil and many others). Medicines are sutured into the muscle of the back, after which they serve as a permanent depot for disulfiram. The substance is released little by little, maintaining a constant concentration in the blood. From a sterile capsule, disulfiram enters the body from 6 to 12 months, after which, at the request of the patient, the torpedo is sewn again.

Aquilong and Vivitrol

Alcohol abuse is controlled with drugs such as Aquilong and Vivitrol. The first part includes the already mentioned disulfiram, which accumulates in the body. The advantage of the drug over analogues is high efficiency at low cost. The medicine is able to encode a drunkard for a long time - up to 5 years. Implantation of the drug - an intravenous injection of 3 or more days in a row.

Vivitrol eliminates alcohol dependence with the help of the active substance naltrexone, which is able to block the opioid receptors of the brain. This is a more humane method of coding alcoholism, but ineffective for drunkards with experience. The medicine is sewn under the skin in the buttock area. The course of treatment with Vivitrol is 6 months. A new drug has to be implanted 1 time / month.

Experts say that injections into the buttock with the Tetlong drug cause a persistent aversion to alcohol. The pharmacological effect of the drug is aimed at blocking the functions of the enzymatic system and the influence of ethanol metabolism. The active substance of Tetlong is disulfiram. An intramuscular injection of the drug acts like a binder - the patient cannot independently neutralize the drug. The duration of action of the active substance after the injection is 20 days. If desired, the injection can be repeated to consolidate the result.

The new generation of drugs act without harm to the patient. After application, there is no post-alcohol syndrome. Drops from alcohol dependence and pills can not only repel cravings for alcohol, but also improve the body.

Psychotherapeutic methods of coding for alcoholism

If drug treatment for dependence is contraindicated for a drinker for some reason, then doctors use psychotherapeutic methods of coding for alcoholism: hypnotic therapy, anchor hypnosis, Dovzhenko encoding, hypnotic effects according to Rozhnov, NLP and others. The task of the therapist with this encoding method is to create a trusting relationship with the patient, immerse him in a deep hypnotic sleep, and set him to refuse alcohol at an unconscious level.

Hypnotic effect according to A. R. Dovzhenko

The most famous method of getting rid of addiction is coding from alcoholism according to the Dovzhenko method. The essence of the technique is a phased installation for a certain period of sobriety with hypnosis. Stages of treatment:

  1. The first is designed to test the patient's readiness. It consists in a personal conversation between the doctor and the patient, in which the degree of individual suggestibility is ascertained.
  2. The second stage is carried out in a group. The duration of the lesson is 2 hours. The total number of participants is from 25 people. The specialist gives a lecture, setting up patients for the success of getting rid of alcoholism.
  3. The final stage is a hypnotic suggestion, which is fixed by physical manipulations. The procedure is carried out individually. The minimum coding term for Dovzhenko is 1 year.

Emotional stress hypnosis according to V. E. Rozhnov

Hypnotic methods are a good alternative to medical and more harmless ones. Recently, collective emotional-stress hypnotherapy according to Rozhnov is very popular. The technique was developed by the author in 1975. It combines team treatment, emotionally rich suggestion from condemnation and order to support and reassurance. Specialists use intragroup relationships of patients for mutual induction, reinforcing therapy with a potent stimulus.

Electroneurostimulation of certain areas of the brain

One of the easiest and safest treatments for alcoholism is transcranial electrical stimulation. Its action is aimed at regulating the functioning of the neuro-vegetative system and stimulating the production of endorphins by the brain. When exposed to weak currents that are supplied through the scalp using special equipment, the production of hormones of joy is stimulated in humans, and serotonin deficiency is eliminated. As a result, not only the psyche of the alcoholic is restored, but also the work of other systems and organs.

Where is it better to code for alcohol

The Internet and the media advertise many drug treatment clinics and private narcologists who are ready to offer coding services for alcoholism, but it is better to contact trusted specialists. Not only the cure for dependence, but also the patient’s health will depend on the qualifications of the doctor and the right method. There are government programs, but free treatment in a narcological clinic does not always give a positive result and has a significant minus - the lack of anonymity.

Private drug treatment centers approach the problem more thoroughly, but not every alcohol-dependent person can spend on treatment, because chronic alcoholics, as a rule, have no money. Rating of Moscow drug treatment clinics:

  1. Family. Clients are encoded in complete anonymity. Drug treatment is supplemented by psychotherapy and physiotherapy.
  2. Help. The clinic is staffed by licensed highly specialized professionals. Treatment is carried out both in the hospital and at home. Patients are provided with meals and different options for their stay. The most inexpensive option for the treatment of alcoholism and the intake of psychotropic substances. Before you go to the clinic, you do not need to collect tests and certificates.
  3. The rescue. Completely anonymous treatment, which is carried out from 3 to 7 months. Narcologists and psychologists work with the alcoholic. Encoding at home is possible, but it does not give a 100% guarantee of cure.
  4. Marshak. One of the oldest Moscow clinics. Patients undergo adequate diagnosis, receive personalized help. Experts use many advanced and long-existing methods of getting rid of alcoholism.

The price of coding services for alcoholism depends on the chosen method, qualifications and length of work of a narcologist, clinic status and other factors. The cost of treatment for alcohol dependence in different clinics in Moscow:

Types of coding for alcohol addiction

A negative reaction to alcohol is produced in two ways - the appearance of an emetic reaction and psychological rejection in response to the intake of alcohol. Both methods are aimed at developing a sustainable aversion to ethyl alcohol, which causes alcohol dependence. Encodings differ in the mechanism of action. Types of coding:

  • medication
  • psychotherapeutic
  • hypnotic setting
  • double blocking
  • hardware.

Encoding does not always solve the problem, so drug treatment specialists often use a combination of several methods. An effective combination of drug and psychotherapeutic coding.

Psychological methods

Psychotherapeutic coding methods are based on the introduction of a program for the rejection of alcohol. A mental effect on the subconscious is used to instill in the patient an aversion to alcohol. Effective authoring techniques:

  • Coding according to the Dovzhenko method - a hypnotic effect is used. Part of the program is carried out with a clear mind.
  • Conditionally reflex method. Formation of a conditioned gag reflex when ethyl alcohol enters the body.
  • Emotionally stressful hypnotherapy of Rozhnov. It includes, in addition to hypnosis, individual or group conversations.
  • Hypnotic encoding using Erickson hypnosis and hypnotic therapy. The anti-alcohol installation is given in a borderline state.
  • Anchor hypnosis method - a negative program for alcohol is formed after finding out the provoking points.
  • Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) helps to return to the previous normal life. Correct modeling of human behavior.

The method of psychocoding is selected individually after studying the patient and a detailed determination of the degree of addiction to alcohol. The cost of consulting a psychotherapist is within 3500 rubles.

Hardware coding

Encoding with electric current is used at the final stages of the treatment of alcoholism. It is a safe and effective method. It is prescribed after a psychotherapeutic course and 10 days of sobriety.

Types of hardware encoding:

  • Electroneurostimulation - TES therapy, the essence of which is the production of endomorphins.
  • Electroconvulsive therapy - electroshock, used to stop alcohol withdrawal.
  • Bioelectroblocking - coding effect lasts up to a year.

The action of weak impulses of electric current on certain parts of the brain reduces the attraction to alcohol. Electro coding is used in conjunction with other methods. Neurocoding is used in severe cases of alcoholism. It consists in the introduction into the patient's body of two drugs (intravenously and intramuscularly), which together suppress the pleasure center, thereby developing indifference to alcohol.

Laser method

According to WHO, laser coding is recognized as an effective and safe method for the treatment of alcohol dependence. Used as an independent method or in combination. It has several advantages:

  • Minimum contraindications.
  • Painless and safe
  • No unpleasant moments.
  • Reliable effect (for 10 sessions).

The essence of the method is the effect of magnetic and laser radiation on bioactive points on the body. Laser coding resembles reflexology, with the difference that the beam works. Laser coding is contraindicated in oncopathology and diabetes. The price of the procedure is in the range of 7000–10000 rubles.

What to choose

The most effective is the drug coding, provided that it is voluntary. Advantages of chemical protection:

  • Studied coding mechanism, security.
  • Long-lasting effect, convenient treatment.
  • Effectiveness at any stage of the disease.

Reflexology of alcoholism is also a fairly effective method with relative safety. URT is a popular encoding method.

If the choice between psychotherapeutic and medicinal encoding methods, you need to consider:

  • Psychotherapy is more suitable for patients who are determined to stop drinking. Its effect is longer (up to 1.5 years).
  • Drug coding is effective in the initial stage of alcoholism. It is relevant when the patient cannot independently give up alcohol.

Coding is a radical way to get rid of alcoholism and has its own nuances. The choice of the most suitable method for a particular patient is carried out by a narcologist.

What types of coding are there?

Having learned what encoding methods exist, many people are simply lost and cannot make a choice. Which method is suitable for a particular person can be determined by a qualified narcologist after collecting an anamnesis and a full examination. If in one case a session of psychotherapy is enough, then in the other it will be necessary to undergo a whole course of drug treatment, and in the third - to completely file.

Today there are such encoding methods:

  • medication
  • psychotherapeutic,
  • hardware.

Each of the methods has numerous encoding methods. For example, in drug coding, a drug can be taken orally (orally), administered parenterally (through the skin), sutured under the shoulder blade or into the gluteus maximus muscle. Injections from chronic alcoholism involve the administration of a drug intramuscularly or into a vein.

Before being encoded, you need to choose the right encoding method and method. Which one is better to use should be decided by the narcologist together with the patient. It should be noted that forced coding is prohibited by law, so the doctor does not have the right to sew a dash from alcoholism without the consent of a person. Also, narcologists and relatives do not have the right to have a hypnotic effect or add any drug to an alcoholic’s food without his knowledge and consent.

Oral means

Blockade of alcohol dependence using tablets is one of the simplest and most convenient encoding methods. Such treatment does not require hypnosis, minimally invasive surgery, or the administration of drugs into a vein. To successfully encode, you only need to take tablets daily and do disulfiram-ethanol samples on time.

Chemical protection obtained using disulfiram-containing drugs is quite effective. If during treatment a person drinks alcohol, his head will begin to hurt, nausea and vomiting will appear, and his heart rate will increase. Quite quickly, an alcoholic will develop an aversion to ethyl alcohol and he will stop drinking. It should be noted that chemical protection is only valid while the patient is taking pills.

In addition to drugs that cause an aversion to alcohol, there are pills that eliminate the pathological craving for alcohol. They have a different composition and mechanism of action, however, all these tablets are quite effective. Medications help a person overcome addiction and return to a normal lifestyle.

Anti-alcohol tablets:

Disulfiram- and naltrexone-containing tablets are sold only by prescription, and they must be taken under the supervision of a doctor. The first disulfiram-ethanol tests should be performed in a hospital, together with a narcologist. Self-medication in this case is extremely dangerous.

Psychological coding

There are various psychotherapeutic coding methods, however, the most famous and effective is the Dovzhenko method. It was invented in the mid-eighties of the last century by the famous Soviet narcologist and psychotherapist Dovzhenko Alexander Romanovich.

This technique is a cross between psychotherapy and hypnosis. During the session, which lasts about two hours, the patient sits with his eyes open, and the doctor conducts a suggestion. It should be noted that the Dovzhenko method is effective only if the person sincerely wants to recover from alcoholism.

Advantages of the Dovzhenko method:

  • simplicity, safety and reliability, time-tested,
  • high efficiency (Dovzhenko’s method helps about 90% of patients),
  • the absence of side effects that medication causes,
  • quick action (one session is enough to get the desired effect).

This method of psychotherapeutic intervention requires the informed consent of the patient. Forced coding is strictly prohibited in this case. Finding himself under hypnosis, a person can get a serious psychoemotional injury. For at least a week before coding, an alcoholic should refrain from drinking alcohol. To consolidate the result, the session can be repeated, but always with the same specialist.

What is the most efficient coding?

To date, the most effective, scientifically sound and proven medical coding. Naturally, it must be voluntary and fully conscious. Forced coding in our country is illegal. It can be done only in two cases:

  1. By the tribunal's decision. This requires the testimony of several witnesses. The court must obtain evidence that the alcoholic leads a lifestyle that is harmful to him and others. The doctor agrees to perform forced coding only having a court order in hand,
  2. When calling an ambulance. Forced treatment of alcoholism is indicated when an alcoholic develops delirium tremens or other alcoholic psychosis. In this case, the person is placed in a psychiatric clinic where he is treated by narcologists and psychiatrists.

There are situations when relatives of an alcoholic decide to encode it without his knowledge. As a rule, such attempts fail. Experts do not recommend secretly adding drops or tablets to the drinker's food, because this can lead to serious complications. You can treat an alcoholic only with his knowledge and consent.

Pills, binders or injections for chronic alcoholism affect all people equally. The use of the drug method minimizes the risk of becoming a victim of charlatans. Coding is performed by doctors in clinics and drug dispensaries that have the appropriate license.

Advantages of drug coding:

  • safety for physical and mental health,
  • scientifically proven efficiency and a fully understandable coding mechanism,
  • persistent effect that persists after the drug is completely eliminated from the body,
  • the ability to choose the most convenient encoding method (injection, taking pills, implant hemming),
  • effectiveness at any stage and form of alcoholism.

More effective is the double block technique. In the first phase, the doctor conducts a hypnosis session, during which he inspires a person with a feeling of disgust for alcohol. Hypnotic suggestion can be done only after a week of abstinence from drinking alcohol.

In the second phase, the alcoholic is injected with a disulfiram-containing drug and a provocative test is performed. A person develops a condition similar to severe poisoning. Against the background of preliminary suggestion, he forms a very strong aversion to alcohol. Due to this, the double block has a more pronounced and lasting effect.
