INFLUENCE OF PSYCHOTHERAPEUTIC ALLIANCE ON EFFICIENCY OF TREATMENT OF PATIENTS WITH OPIOID ADDICTION

Abstract


The article discusses the study of relationship between therapeutic alliance and compliance of patients with opioid addiction: an increase in therapeutic alliance has been accompanied with an increase in compliance. The well-established therapeutic alliance as a therapeutic tool has been combined with a high level of the patients' willingness to comply with the treatment prescribed. The findings have validated the study's hypothesis regarding a positive influence of therapeutic alliance on compliance of patients with opioid addiction.
