DUARTE, Cláudio Elias et al. A thinking games program for adolescents in a situation of psychoactive-substance dependence. SMAD, Rev. Eletrônica Saúde Mental Álcool Drog. (Ed. port.) [online]. 2021, vol.17, n.2, pp. 54-63. ISSN 1806-6976.

OBJECTIVE: to analyze the impacts of the application of a program using thinking games based on the Mind Lab methodology on the executive functions: attention, flexibility and planning in adolescents in a situation of psychoactive-substance dependence. METHOD: quasi-experimental quantitative study with the application of neuropsychological assessment tools before and after intervention. Thirty-five adolescents aged 12 to 17 years old, admitted to an Integrated Mental Health Care Center in the city of São Paulo, participated in this study. RESULTS: there was evidence of attention improvement after application of the games program. Regarding the planning and flexibility functions, improvements were observed, but they were not significant. CONCLUSION: it was possible to observe the importance of using thinking games as a playful resource in the treatment of substance-dependent adolescents, thus enabling the construction of strategies that assist in their recovery and rehabilitation process.
