The federation has a short residential treatment of 15 to 30 days max of internship. We simultanially detox and start the recovery process of indicviduals that have alcohol or drugaddiction problems. The 12 steps are used as the treatment protocol in out terapeutic environment with also the aid of sico - visual group and individual terapies for the residents at the center. Living in a group terapeutic environment helps the practice of principles and values of all the residents . The treatment based on the 12 step program of recovery has 4 main objectives:
1) To make sure the resident understands what the disease of addiction is and what are the consequences it brings to the addcit. (The progressive nature of the disease)
2) To help the detox period by also looking at the diferent phases of the motivation , self analisys , help , friendship, knowledge and how to live with other people in recovery.
3) To take a close look at what disease of addiction has done to other people and emphasized the need to make a decision.
4) Show the importance of attending the AA groups so that recovering addicts can fill the void left when they decide not to use anymore.
The federation beliefs that is of the atmost importance that the residents who finish their short term residential treatment can have the ability of choosing which AA groups they will like to attend. AA by many is consider the best alternative to stay sober.
