Abstract

Combined and staged treatment is a new clinical methodology for the orientation of drug addiction cases within families. This methodology resorts to several techniques in a combined way, such as: family therapy and counselling; the use of psychopharmacology and opioide antagonists; as well as individual and group psycho-therapeutics. These are all linked to a personal psycho-social rehabilitation program. This treatment is based on family accessibility and therapeutic community programs. The authors review different contributions and the evolution of different therapeutic modalities. Finally they propose a list for inductions and another for the formal contra-indications for this kind of treatment.
