The main criterion of scoping of the market of medical services is the statistics. In the last two years, the number of the inquiries connected with treatment of drug addiction and alcoholism considerably increased in the Russian Internet. Frequency of search of the narcological help with various directions, increased from 20 to 100%. Such statistics is not for us surprising. During crisis the level of depressive frustration among a wide part of the population always increases that in the Russian tradition means increase alcohol consumption, often to that stage when medical care is necessary. Though official data speak to us about decrease in sales of alcohol, it is necessary to understand that it is only about excise alcohol. The Russian market is still full counterfeit alcohol and the volume of illegal production of alcoholic substitutes does not give in to statistics. The correct conclusions need to be drawn not on the basis of the accounting of amount of the drunk excise alcohol on one person a year, and being guided by real statistics of addresses of patients for the narcological help. Here we see a steady tendency of growth of direct addresses to doctors of narcological clinics, and growth of information requests connected with narcology in general.
Frequency of inquiries in Yandex|Google of the keyword "narcologist" for the last 2 years May, 2014 by May, 2016 grew by 1,5 times from 90 000 inquiries to 170 000 inquiries a month.
Increases in frequency of requests of drug addicts for medical care, confirms effective measures for fight against drug trafficking. Difficulties of acquisition and the cost of narcotic substances in the black market, fortunately, forces many dependent people to see doctors, but not to look for the next portion of the absolute evil. However, treatment of patients with drug addiction often comes down to knocking over of an abstinence syndrome (withdrawal pains), and not enough attention is paid to social rehabilitation. In our country there are obviously not enough specialized centers of complex treatment and social rehabilitation of patients with drug addiction and alcoholism.
