Title Prognostic factors in the development of opioid addiction
Author Vasila Abdullaeva
Abstract 145 patients with opioid addiction were studied for prognostic factors influencing formation and development of medical and social consequences of opioid addiction. The examined patients had drug abuse duration from 1 year to 15 years. Analysis of studies showed that the most significant adverse prognostic factors, determining formation rate of medical and social consequences in opioid addiction, may include: perinatal pathology, personality deviation in the premorbid; early onset of drug abusing; hereditary addiction to drug and mental illness; condition of upbringing; alcohol abuse experience prior to narcotization; drug addiction duration.
