EXPERIENCE IN THE TREATMENTS AGAINST DRUG ADDICTION IN CUBA.
The referral of treatment against drug addiction is based on the experience of mental health care in Cuba since the 80s. The treatments against drug addiction in Cuba are focused through a model of coexistence with other patients affected with this disease, where stories, affections, responsibilities and teamwork are shared, with participatory and natural therapeutic techniques.
With guidance and attention from a multidisciplinary team of professionals and technicians led by psychiatrists, based on a step-by-step program, the non-consumption of toxic substances (drugs, drugs, alcohol) is guaranteed with a high level of treatment of effectiveness, from the modification of the lifestyle, and from the application of techniques of control of the situation by the patient himself.
The humanitarian training of Cuban professionals and the fact that addiction is not a health problem in Cuba are factors that contribute significantly to the high effectiveness of Cuban treatment, since it will be very difficult during treatment to have contact with any type of drug.
