This article reviews some important aspects of the “Brazilian Psychiatric Reform” (RPB) in order to intertwine its history - considering its political and social aspects - with the construction of Harm Reduction strategy in the “National Policy for the Comprehensive Care of Users of Alcohol and other Drugs”, in Brazil. Our intention is to present some of the experiences occurred in the state of Pernambuco and its capital Recife, such as the occasional services as “Programa Mais Vida” and the “Programa Atitude”, unique and successful local experiences in shift the care of people with drug problems. In addition, we sustain the need for services cross-linking in the care of this public, presented here as the “Health Care Network for Users of Alcohol and other Drugs” aiming problematize its effectiveness in the context of RPB.

Keywords : Psychiatric Reform; Drugs; Harm Reduction; Drug Policy; Health and Care Networks.
