OBJECTIVE: the objective of this study was to describe the adolescents’ perception about adherence to the chemical dependency treatment. METHOD: descriptive, exploratory study with a qualitative approach. Eleven adolescents attended the Psychosocial Care Center for Alcohol and Drugs (CAPS ad) in the interior of Minas Gerais. Data were collected through interviews, using a semi-structured instrument and then analyzed through the content analysis technique. RESULTS: it was found that the established links, the activities developed, the family support facilitates the adherence to the treatment and the court order assists in the frequency of service. CONCLUSION: it is concluded that the identification and understanding of the factors that interfere in the process of adherence to treatment allow the elaboration of adequate and effective therapeutic programs and approaches, based on the needs of adolescents.
