Outpatient treatment takes place in Day Centers, and is aimed at adults with substance use problems. It begins with the request for information or help from the affected people or their relatives/partner/environment through a phone call, social networks, email, in person.

In this first phase of the UAD (Drug Addiction Care Units), the information and needs presented by the person are collected, and they are admitted to outpatient treatment, to continue with the exploration and diagnosis of the case: age, substances consumed, path toxicology, personal and family situation, employment, criminal and health situation.

The outpatient program has four phases of treatment:

PHASE C: PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE.  It is the phase where self-concept and self-esteem, social and family relationships and behavior patterns, past experiences and traumas are worked on, in order to generate new strategies for life.

PHASE D: SOCIAL INSERTION.  During this phase, work begins on disassociating the person from treatment, personal autonomy, medium- and long-term programming, relapse prevention, alcohol use, . .. In addition, work incorporation and the search for accommodation are worked on.
