Short description:
The Institution assists the parents and/or legal guardians of adolescents facing special situations of drug abuse. This approach consists in receiving each family initially at its premises and then holding interviews and counseling sessions with them. After this intervention, the parents are referred to a therapeutic group led by professionals trained in facilitating this kind of activity. No specific deadline is set for discharging families from this Group and each family has a chance, in their own time, to overcome their difficulties and improve family relations, and many of them remain in the group for longer periods and become multipliers of this service in other locations.
