The Moscow Research and Practical Centre for Narcology started its history as Moscow
Research and Practical Centre for Prevention of Drug Addictions that was set up in
1998 in accordance with decision of the Moscow government and the order of the
Moscow Department of Public Health. Later, for the purposes of improvement of
organization and provision of narcological care and in accordance with decision of the
Moscow government of 2004 and the order of the Department of Public Health of 2005,
the Moscow Research and Practical Centre for Prevention of Drug Addictions was

the Moscow Department of Public Health.

The principal direction of the Centre’s work is development of unified and continuous
system of prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of narcological disorders as well as

of prevention, treatment and rehabilitation within framework of successive stages that
formed one single process. This technology happens to be the leading one in modern
narcology and it is implemented in the clinic of the Centre.

The Centre has a research block, which is busy with development of treatment and
rehabilitation programs and technologies for the purposes of improvement of treatment
and rehabilitation in the field of narcology, and introduction of results of research in

Centre runs a number of programs aimed at prevention of alcohol and drug addiction
at workplace and in educational facilities, which has been approved by the Moscow
government.

drug addiction, gambling, with the purpose to find optimal pharmacological and
psychotherapeutic treatments. The Centre had developed the first in the Russian
Federation rehabilitation program for narcological patients, and it is used in the clinic of
the Centre.
