GUERRA, Marcella Regina Silva Rieiro  and  VANDENBERGHE, Luc. Approach to abusive behavior of psychoactive substances in Brazil: the state of the art. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2017, vol.12, n.3, pp. 1-22. ISSN 1809-8908.

The complex problem of treating the abusive use of psychoactive substance puts the scientific community before its social responsibility. The goal of the present article was to know the Brazilian scientific production regarding the rehabilitation of the user. An integrative literature study was undertaken, covering the last 5 years. From the 60 articles obtained through Google Scholar and the CAPES journal gate, 32 focused on treatment of dependency, as the main theme. They were subdivided into: models and programs (09 articles); and specific aspects of treatment (23 articles). Empirical research on treatment is strongly concentrated in the South of the country. The literature shows a proliferation of techniques and treatment programs, accompanied by the goal to approach the person as a whole and to adapt the treatment to the individual needs of each person.

Keywords : Treatment of substance dependence; Treatment of psychoactive substance dependency; Rehabilitation of chemical dependence.
