How to cope with alcohol addiction, how to get rid of this condition and eliminate its causes? How to prevent it? These are questions that can be answered by specialists of our Clinic in Moscow, specialists, practicing Doctor Jacob Hiller’s method.
There are a lot of myths and legends around alcoholism. For example, you have heard many times that
- Alcoholism may be treated, but cannot be cured,
- There are no ex-alcoholics,
- Women’s alcoholism cannot be cured
and other absurd statements about this disease.
Many people think so. But 20 years ago Dr.Jacob Hiller from Switzerland created the unique system for treatment of different addictions and he proved to all medical community that alcoholism treatment is not a myth but a reality confirmed by unchallengeable facts. Tens of thousands of seriously ill patients from many countries returned to active productive life. Doctor Hiller’s method is a treatment of alcohol addiction with principally new approach.
Dr.Hiller’s alcoholism treatment method is aimed at elimination of abstinence, desire to drink, craving for alcohol using medicines. Thus, our alcoholism treatment method normalizes patient’s mental condition and returns disturbed biochemical processes to norm.
For this purpose, first of all, we use the combination of two well-known preparations used during the first 1.5-2 hours. That is we apply medicamental alcoholism treatment method.
During this time the patient is completely free of withdrawal abstinence syndrome and there is no necessity to drink alcohol. Such need disappears completely.
After that the supporting therapy is administered. This is the next stage of our alcoholism treatmentmethod. It is aimed at normalization of all available biochemical disorders in the central nervous system.
Pharmaceutical drugs which we use in “Dr.Jacob Hiller’s Clinic” are produced by the best European pharmaceutical companies and they are certainly approved in Russia. Drugs are provided to patients who need alcoholism treatment in original packages with detailed administration instructions.
Dr.Hiller has worked out that the long alcohol abuse results in multiple biochemical disorders in the brain, accumulation of glutamate and N-methyl-D-aspartate in particular and quantitative imbalance of other most important neurotransmitters, substances required for your nervous system to transfer nerve impulse. These are the disorders that should be eliminated for effective alcoholism treatment.
The general background of biochemical disorders upon alcoholism is the following one: the level of neurotransmitters inhibiting impact on central nervous system is reduced, and the level of glutamate (N-methyl-aspartate) causing overstress of certain nerve centers, on the contrary, is steadily increased. This is expressed in anxiety, uneasiness, emotional instability, invariable behavior, aggression and so on.
The scheme below shows the disorders of neurotransmitters’ composition which correspond to the specific alcoholism symptoms.
The glutamate (N-methyl-aspartate) level which is steadily increased and at which our alcoholism treatment method is primarily aimed, drives the need in increasing alcohol doses as ethanol and some of its metabolism products have affinity (general peculiarities of molecular structure) to the same receptor sites as glutamate (N-methyl-aspartate).
Thus alcoholic beverage use becomes the only possible “physiologic” and unfortunately familiar way to reduce increasing psychic excitement. Such situation is defined by us as evident drug addiction, and accompanying personal changes are defined as alcoholic encephalopathy, convulsions, hallucinatory delirious disorders and so on.
Considering the above mentioned facts, it becomes clear that etiopatogenic treatment of alcohol addiction is impossible without elimination of neurotransmitter imbalance and normalization of their concentrations in the relevant sections of central nervous system.
That is why during the first two hours we remove glutamate (N-methyl-aspartate) causing most negative symptoms determining alcohol addiction. This helps our patients to return to normal lifestyle approximately from the second or the third day. After that we administer medicines restoring other biochemical disorders, some of them are shown on the scheme above (endorphine, dopamine, serotonin levels are regulated).
As a result, a person begins to feel as he or she was 10, 20, 30 years ago. As it had been before he or she became addicted to alcohol. He or she feels himself or herself perfectly healthy. And to be more precise he or she becomes absolutely healthy.
Modern science development does not allow the Clinic to examine the patient’s DNA and thereafter select medicamental treatment. Those who claim such knowledge show disrespect to dependent persons and their relatives. It cannot be 7, 27 or 47 “typical” brain biochemical disorders. Such and similar phrases indicate lack of knowledge in the brain biochemistry and physiology.
Obvious advantages of our treatment method are:
- AMBULATORY CARE TREATMENT: alcoholism treatment in our Сlinic is ambulatory care. The “withdrawal pains”, desire to drink and craving for alcohol are completely eliminated in two hours,
- QUICK TREATMENT: the patient returns to normal lifestyle within two-three days after a visit to our Dr.Hiller’s Clinic,
- HIGH EFFICIENCY of alcoholism treatment: people do not renew drinking alcohol (except for the patients with acute mental disorders),
- FIXING of stable positive effect for years is carried out within two-three months due to supporting therapy (separate stage in alcohol addiction treatment) that do not disturb the habitual lifestyle of the patient,
- SPECIAL PREPARATION IS NOT NEEDED: there is no need in preliminary days-long abstention, admittance of a patient to hospital for “purification” of blood and so on,
- CLEANNESS: we do not use neuroleptics and antidepressants,
- LACK OF TENSE AND ANXIETY: anxiety and fear are excluded as compared to other treatment methods,
- VOLUNTARINESS: any “aggressive” measures are excluded, for example, forced detention in patient care institution. Our alcoholism treatment is carried out using humane methods only,
- ANONYMITY: we carry out anonymous alcoholism treatment.
Jacob Hiller’s alcoholism treatment methods were successfully implemented in Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Austria, Germany and other countries.

Jacob Hiller’s Appeal
Effective alcoholism treatment exists. “Can it really be true that there is effective alcoholism treatment? How is it possible, Mr. Jacob?!” This is the question which Doctor Hiller has been answering to his colleagues for twenty years:
Jacob Hiller: “I am not a psychoanalyst, and I do not want to know why a person started drinking: this fact is of no practical importance for alcoholism treatment. Psychotherapy cannot correct the changed physiology.
“Purification” of blood, plasmapheresis or hemapheresis has no medical sense as they represent invasive, dangerous and unnecessary manipulation. I do not sew in “torpedos” because I believe that the fear of death is not a medicine but poison for soul and delay-action mine for life and health. It is a well-known fact that over 80% of “hypnotic alcoholics” begin to drink again, and even more intensively, and in those who abstain during this period the real psychosis can be developed. The circumstances when a person begins drinking, the time of addiction coming are of no importance as the problem is in disorder of the brain metabolism, neurotransmitter imbalance. Eliminate these delicate biochemical disorders, and you will be surprised at the alcoholism treatment effect!”
