BRITO, Rafaella Medeiros de Mattos  e  SOUSA, Tiago Monteiro. Drug addiction and person centered approach: contributions and challenges in a therapeutic community. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.1, pp. 77-85. ISSN 1809-6867.

Given the debates about the possibilities of treatment for chemical dependency in Brazil, we expose in this article some of our experience in the psychology department of a Therapeutic Community. With the Person-Centered Approach, of Carl Rogers, as our theoretical reference, we faced questions that appeared from our practice and reflection on our professional proceeding: the novelty of psychotherapy for the participants; the challenges of being in a therapeutic setting other than the one in which we were trained for; the multidisciplinary work; and the focal characteristic of our services. Therefore, we propose some possible paths that helped us achieving positive results regarding personal development of those who were in treatment for chemical dependency.
