The bases and indications for the staged combined treatment of heroin addicts as outpatients.

M David, D Neto


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.
