Take a look at our most important releases. 

 


Most of them were published by order of government agencies. 

 

Our team carried out tasks including: obtaining licenses and sub-licenses allowing for non-commercial publication in Poland, translations, proofreading, factual editorials (psychological, clinical), language editorials, printing and distribution of several dozen copies of books.

 

The books have been distributed to doctors, addiction counselors, psychotherapists and psychologists employed in hospitals, mental health centres and university libraries throughout the country.

The World Health Organisation's guidelines on pharmacotherapy and psychosocial treatment for opioid addicts are based on systematic reviews of available literature and consultations with experts from different regions of the world. To date, no publications on this subject have been published in Poland. Therefore, their preparation is extremely important for specialists in Poland.

 

 

 

The guidelines are intended for people involved in the provision of opioid dependence pharmacotherapy at every level and are an important element used in national and regional treatment programmes. In addition, they are an important link for the groups that create guidelines for the therapeutic treatment of opioid addicts.

 

Guidelines for the Psychosocially Assisted Pharmacological Treatment of Opioid Dependence

The book is a publication of The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) from the United States Department of Health and Welfare, as part of the "Addiction Treatment Handbooks" series. The manuals present clear, helpful information to assist therapists, providing the best possible support that science currently has to offer. They describe scientifically supported therapeutic methods for the treatment of addiction and provide specific guidance on the content of sessions and how to use these methods. Cognitive behavioural skills training is a short-term, targeted approach to helping cocaine addicts to refrain from using cocaine and other stimulants.

The therapeutic model presented in the publication helps to identify situations where clients are likely to use cocaine, teaches to avoid using it when needed and implements more effective methods of dealing with a range of problems or problematic behaviour associated with substance abuse.

It is a practical, step-by-step guide to help you notice and understand excessive work and start working more effectively while enjoying a stress-free life every day.Dr Robinson's book is based on hundreds of cases of people working and addicted to work based on his own clinical practice and years of research.

This is the first book to bring out the essence of the experience of the pioneers of this emerging area. Focusing on individual patient groups, the book is also a useful tool for solving problems. Clear, concise and filled with useful interventions, it contains a key text that every clinician working in the area of sexholism therapy must familiarize himself with.
