The experience accumulated over the past years, the rapidly changing reality drug (the type of substances consumed, the contexts of consumption and the characteristics of consumers), the ongoing the development of concepts and treatment modalities make the treatment area a test-space to RTD capacity, while structure, to relax for adapt permanently, not a model solely focused on abstinence, but rather a comprehensive model of the addict, a trajectory that goes from the first request for help to when substance use it ceases to be the central aim of his life, and that undergoes a number of important steps that are therapeutic in itself.
The treatment is thus understood as a dynamic and complex process that aims not only to stop consumption.

Psychosocial changes(improvement of it’s relations with the surrounding, re-investment studies or work, break with antisocial behavior patterns).
Psychological changes(ability to engage with more stability and continuity in affective relationships perceived as rewarding, greater autonomy and self knowledge capacity).
Changes in physical health(ability to identify early symptoms or the manifestation of a given disease and hence to seek help from health professionals, prevented it from degradation of the individual and the risk of spread of infectious diseases, especially AIDS, hepatitis and tuberculosis).
Only an intervention that consider different areas of life of the individual, the psychological aspects of life history, family, social and labor, can lead to successful treatment.
