THERAPEUTIC ALCOHOLISM PROGRAM

The general objectives of the Program are:
To get the user, removed from their normal environment, to direct their motivation towards treatment in order to recognize their problem and stay clean.
This is done through a restructuring of habits and behaviors affected by alcoholism, as well as a training for their eventual social reintegration, work and family.

Description of Program:
The length of stay in the center of the Association Egueiro varies depending on the progress of each user, ranging from a minimum of 6 months to a maximum of 12 months.
The program of 6 months is suggested for those users whose environment is structured, who maintain family relationships and hold the possibility of re-employment.
The full 9-12 month program involves the support of the referral centers so that reintegration is as complete and satisfactory as possible, offering the user an outpatient follow-up.
