Psychoactive substance consumption constitutes a complex problem experienced in contemporary societies. Thus, this research aimed to analyze users' perception about the care offered at the Psychosocial Care Center for Alcohol and Drugs. The methodology used was the Collective Subject Discourse. Ten users accompanied by the service were interviewed, located in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. The users acknowledge the care offered as humanized and they consider that the treatment strategy influences their consumption and the reduction of the harm drugs abuse causes.

Keywords : User Embracement; Mental Health; Drug Users.
