SAE (Serviços de Aconselhamento de Espinho) is a Therapeutic Unit specialized in the treatment of a wide variety of underlying Psychological Addictions- chemical and/or behaviorial dependencies and underlying psycological problems.


Our purpose has been to develop rehabilitation programs for alcoholism, drugs and other addictions, adapted to the Portuguese reality. By treating the whole person and approaching the issue of addiction from multiple angles, our patients have the opportunity to achieve an effective and lasting recovery.
At SAE you will find a peaceful and comfortable environment, where you can organize your thoughts and concentrate on finding the joy of living and physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual well-being. Our common goal for all patients is to help them get their lives back by offering the necessary professional support and guidance in an environment of acceptance, respect and dignity.




For more than 20 years, we have offered a unique haven for families and their loved ones who have suffered the impact of addiction and mental health problems. Our name has stood the test of time. Every day we dive in a clinically sophisticated treatment in a place where our clients are proud to call home. We have seen unique individuals, each with his own story, struggling not only with addiction, but also with underlying issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, shame, guilt, chronic pain, and compulsive behaviors that have frustrated all previous attempts to free themselves from addiction and to recover. But we have also seen true "miracles".
