The importance of information :

The success of a treatment programme will always depend on the quality of the information and knowledge we are able to pass on to patients about their condition. Addiction is a disease recognised by the WHO and should be seen as such: chronic and progressive. As with any disease, it is important to know its causes, effects and how it affects them, so during treatment patients will have to demonstrate what they have studied and learnt about their addiction.

The importance of changing:

Any treatment works not because of its duration but above all because of what is done during treatment. For change to happen, more important than the length of treatment is the creation of conditions for change: the learning and action that is put in place. You get out of recovery what you put in: a lot or a little. The results of inner change are the result of the work done by the patient and the entire therapeutic team, together with the development of an integration and post-treatment plan. Those who don’t change stay the same, those who stay the same will repeat the same things.

Our programme is based on models of change and reality therapy, behaviour change, with total abstinence as the fundamental requirement for this transformation, following the Cognitive Behavioural model.

The programme takes place in an in-patient setting, in a peaceful environment. Once this process is over, treatment will continue whenever necessary, with post-treatment groups and individual sessions.

The family, which is so often affected by the patient’s behaviour, is an important part of the treatment process, and their involvement in the therapeutic plan is beneficial. Whenever possible, the family is invited to take part in family sessions with the aim of learning how to deal with the consequences and issues that arise from these problematic experiences. This programme is structured around various themes and operates in a virtual format to make it easier to attend.
