If necessary, a family member would accompany him to participate in the process of socio-family reintegration.
- After recycling, a recycling program is established that reduces visits to the center and extends their stay in the country of origin.
This variant of the exit allows to continue the individual and family work with the total reinsertion in the social environment from the new attitudes towards life that during the treatment have incorporated and that are of vital importance to facilitate the confrontation to new challenges and overcome the drug-dependence.
Sometimes, depending on individual particularities and at the request of the family, he is accompanied to his home country by a therapist with the aim of facilitating his social reintegration.
Once the patient is discharged, individual and family follow-up is not interrupted; This can be coordinated through visits from the therapist to the place of origin, visits that favor the evaluation of their own socio-professional-teaching environment, expand the participation of other members of the family and allow interaction with other therapists (who referred the patient or Support groups)
