Chemical Dependency Nucleus

CEFI Integration

Work with the participation of all members involved in the daily life of the drug addict, promoting their resocialization, personal, emotional, family and bonding through the following therapeutic modalities:

1) Psychiatric assessment and follow-up and individual therapy:
Chemical dependence is a chronic disease that brings suffering, psychic disharmony, interfering with the adaptive functioning and social participation of the individual. When diagnosing it, one should also pay attention to the simultaneous occurrence of other symptoms and / or psychic disorders, such as mood disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, cognitive impairment, impulsive disorders and withdrawal syndromes, as they occur. largely from drug addicts. Treating these comorbidities is important as it significantly reduces relapses and assists the recovery process.

2) Couple and Family Therapy:
The family constitutes as a source of primary socialization, influencing the formation of the identity of the subjects. We can say that, besides being affected by drug addiction, the family can stimulate, facilitate and even perpetuate it. Even more, experts understand that addicts' behaviors also make their families sick. Therefore, it is necessary to seek healing relationships in the closest people. We highlight the mechanism of codependency, which is a kind of family obsession about behavior and welfare of the dependent, becoming the axis of family organization. This needs to be redefined to prevent the family from unconsciously promoting relapse of the drug addict. Family treatment provides cohesion and support to the addict, decreases the possibility of denial mechanism, promotes better adherence to treatment, and the family learns about addiction and revises their own behaviors to encourage use.

3) Follow-up on the Chemical Dependency Consultant:
It is a work of significant impact on the rehabilitation of drug addicts with regard to helping to improve the quality of life, both in the social area. as well as health, helping in the effectiveness of treatment programs. The Consultant conducts individual and group approaches that focus on treatment and change motivation, relapse prevention, strengthening self-efficacy, and building short, medium and long term functional goals.

4) Group therapy:
Group work provides identification among participants, exchange of experiences, reflections, hopes. Groups are offered to drug addicts and their families. Through relationships with other people with the same problem in the therapeutic space, there is the exchange of difficulties and problem solving, in a true network effect.
