TEO, Carla Rosane Paz Arruda; BALDISSERA, Luana  e  RECH, Francielle Rodrigues da Fonseca. Adequacy of nutrition to chemical dependents' profile in a therapeutic community: a case study. SMAD, Rev. Eletrônica Saúde Mental Álcool Drog. (Ed. port.) [online]. 2011, vol.7, n.3, pp. 119-125. ISSN 1806-6976.

The study aimed to evaluate the adequacy of nutrition to institutionalized dependents' profile in a therapeutic community. They (33) answered a semistructured questionnaire to identify the profile and had their weight and height measured. We evaluated 56 lunch menus. Low socioeconomic status (66.7%), low education level (42.4%), alcohol abuse (93.9%) and overweight (45.5%) were found. The menus were rich in leaves (75.0%) and other vegetables (57.0%), fruit (82.1%), and presented high levels of complex carbohydrates (44.6%) and fried foods (35.7 %). It was concluded that nutrition at the evaluated institution contributes to overweight, reinforcing the importance of nutritionists' insertion in the chemical addiction treatment team.
