The methodology used is based on the recognized model of American treatment, the Minnesota Model. This model is by far the most widely used treatment model and offers the best results, although in Portugal it is still not very widespread. This Model combines the Medical Model (since it advocates the concept of disease without cure but with recovery, also defended by the WHO), the Philosophy of the 12 Steps Recovery Program from Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous, that proves to be possible to always recover when you follow the program's proposals, together with the latest medical, psychological and psychiatric advances.
The problem is thus understood as a Primary, Chronic, Progressive, and Fatal Disease; which affects the individual in physical, emotional, psychological, existential and social terms, this is why the treatment is individualized and is based on a bio-psycho-social and spiritual approach that addresses the problem in all its dimensions and supports for the individual throughout his life.
It is a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach, markedly humanistic, oriented into two long-term goals: abstinence from all types of drugs and the achievement of a life of quality with physical, psychological and emotional health.
