Life Before – During – After Treatment
To better understand how our intervention model, try to picture the Before – During – After in which relies the premises of our treatment program:
1. BEFORE the program in Therapeutic Community
> Disconnection with the Other. Drug use as the usual solution to overwhelming feelings. Or an escape of family or friends’ expectations. Use to solve problems of regulation of conduct, identity or integration.
2. DURING treatment in Therapeutic Community
>Upon entering the TC and begin to live with the peer group according to the rules of the program, the inpatients begin their reconnection with the Other. They initiate to manage their feelings and emotions, the resolution of problems of conduct regulation, the feeling of recognition of who I am. And the overcoming of the usual forms of interaction.
3. AFTER treatment in Therapeutic Community
>”I have changed 100%”. Through the structured narrative obtained on who they are and what they have gone through, inpatients become able to deal with experiences in a positive way. The regulation of change behaviour highlights the importance of speaking on a truly way about relapse prevention. Change of perception of Self and in relation to others. Desire to live: to have an apartment, to start work, to pay the bills, to return to school …
Briefly: Critical Success Factors of Treatment
For this, we focus on:

> Behavioural analysis: based on the assumption that each behaviour has specific consequences and has underlying cognitive and social expectations.
> Pedagogy of daily life: by engaging in occupational activities, daily tasks and healthy management of leisure. We seek to promote personal structure and organization, as well as discovering other sort of activities that boost personal motivation and satisfaction
>Psychological support: engaging on psychotherapeutic groups and individual psychotherapy to promote cognitive, emotional and relational development and relapse prevention strategies
