The treatment of patients with alcoholism has a long history in Kazan and refers to the experience of conducting hypnotherapy sessions by the great Russian scientist Vladimir Mikhailovich Bekhterev, which served as the basis for the creation of stress psychotherapy in modern narcology. The provision of narcological assistance in Tatarstan during the Soviet period is associated with the opening of the Republican Narcological Dispensary, which celebrated its 45th anniversary this year. There are three stages in the provision of drug abuse treatment: in the Soviet period (1975–1991), in the “post-Soviet space” (from 1991–2000), and in modern times (after 2000). Each stage is characterized by its own characteristics. The Republican Narcological Dispensary, which received the status of “clinical”, adequately copes with the task of treating patients with alcoholism and drug addiction, continuing the traditions of Russian narcology.
