Caps in the admissions are voluntary and patients are not required to remain in place

The first Centre for Psychosocial care for alcohol users, crack and other drugs (Caps-AD), which operate 24 hours, was inaugurated on Friday (8) in the state capital. The site is ready to receive patients in crisis and has eight beds for detoxification treatment up to 15 days duration.

Beside the Caps-AD, was inaugurated a Unit of Home Adult (UAA), with 30 beds for treatments longer than three months. Both properties are in the neighborhood of the studied area, within the area of ​​the former colony Juliano Moreira, where they were segregated people with mental health problems or drug and alcohol users.

The coordinator of the county Mental Health, Karen Aquino said the admissions are voluntary and patients are not required to remain in place. Even after the period of high, they can continue attending the center to continue treatment.

The Caps-AD is directed to ailing patients with mild to moderate poisoning, they need a spot to host up to 15 days to restore and re-do the treatment. At UAA, it is a situation in which the patient needs a clearance of where he is or the location of drug use for a longer period in order to re-establish social ties and kinship, explained.

Treatment is individualized, case by case, and involves various professionals, including general practitioners, psychiatrists, nurses, nursing technicians, psychologists, music therapists and occupational therapists. According Karen, most of the attention in the municipal area is dedicated to users of alcohol, and the use of crack accounts for a minor part of 20%.

The Municipal Secretary of Health, Hans Dohmann, attended the inauguration and stressed the need to build more units devoted to the treatment of alcohol and drug users. It is a new model for the city, within the policy of the Ministry of Health, which is a step in the great effort that the city will do in the coming years, to advance in psychosocial care. Our plan is to have such equipment in each program area of ​​the city, to account for the needs of each region, said.
