TRINCA, Ricardo Trape et al. Anthropophagi and sustainability: bonds in women with substance abusedisorders?. Vínculo [online]. 2013, vol.10, n.1, pp. 14-21. ISSN 1806-2490.

Different authors have described addiction among clinical casescharacterized byimpairments on the basis of constitution of subjectivity, as an expression of lack of symbolic capacity. This lack of symbolization appears in the form of acting-outs, in which anthropophagicincorporations replace the elaboration process. In this sense, the great challenge of treating people with substance use disorders is giving them the possibility of formation of a discourse that may mediate, through symbolization, the relationship between the person and heranthropophagi. Thus, it is essential to create conditions for building sustainable bonds, enabling the emergence of anguish to the work of psychic elaboration. The aim of this paper is to discuss the possibilities and limits found by a multidisciplinary team in an outpatient women-only substance abuse treatment working to build bonds that promote psychic elaboration. From the analysis of the transference, the question is the nature of the bonds and the actual direction of the therapeutic process.

Keywords : substance use disorder; treatment; bonds and team.
