In order to study and develop new drug-free methods of therapy, introduce them into practice, as well as provide medical and psychosocial assistance to patients with limited and functional disorders, since 1979 on the basis of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional Psychoneurological Hospital, an office was opened to provide them with assistance on an outpatient basis.
In 1986, on the basis of this office, a regional psychotherapeutic audiological center was created with an outpatient clinic and a 60-bed hospital. In 1989 he was awarded the status of the Republican Scientific and Practical Center of the Ministry of Health of the Ukrainian SSR (order of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine No. 77 dated 04/03/1989).
Since 2002, the Center has been renamed into the Ukrainian Center for Psychotherapeutic Rehabilitation in the structure of the KU DKPB (order No. 285 of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine) and, unfortunately, does not exist at the moment. Now, this is an ordinary department in the structure of the regional psychiatric hospital, department 42. Since May 2020, the hospital has been reformed and Professor Rakhmanov no longer works in it.
In 2012, in an abandoned kindergarten building on 17-A Stoletov st., the building was reconstructed and overhauled, and the Research Institute for Child and Family Psychiatry, Psychotherapy, Psychology, Medical, and Psychosocial Rehabilitation was established.
Today, the institute has combined all the experience of previous endeavors, medical research, and the unique practice of Professor Rakhmanov.
