Survey produced by the Mental Rehabilitation Clinic Taipas State Hospital, a unit of Ministry of Health of São Paulo, points out that family presence is essential for the recovery of alcohol and other drugs. The service, which noted 171 cases between May 2009 and May 2010, also found that alcohol dependence accounts for 45% of patients admitted for detoxification.

Of these cases, 92% had the support of family members during hospitalization. However, the 8% who did not obtain follow-up had a history of broken family ties and impoverishment of social interaction, leading to difficulty with hospital treatment.

Besides the psychiatric and psychotherapeutic accompaniments, family members play an important role in the detoxification process. They participate in support groups and relatives of patients with more complex cases still participate in individual sessions.

Families are involved in order to redefine the symptom, to redeem the mutual responsibility of each member by operation of inpatient and help expand the network after the hospital, said the caseworker's Rehabilitation Clinic Mental Hospital, Fatima Madalena Marques .

According to Vera Lucia Gomes, a psychiatrist at the service, alcoholics are more susceptible to a relapse. Sometimes, seeing the patient in better condition, the family itself stimulates drinking alcohol rehabilitation period, during social gatherings like parties and happy hour, says the expert. This is extremely misleading.

The Rehabilitation Clinic Mental Taipas General Hospital provides care to patients referred referenced by the Centers for Psychosocial Care (CAPS) in the municipalities of São Paulo and the metropolitan area. With an average stay about 20 days, patients have the support of a multidisciplinary team comprised of psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker, nurse, occupational therapists and support staff.
