SILVEIRA, Pollyanna Santos da et al. Feasibility of acceptance and commitment therapy for drug addicts. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.1, pp. 1-20. ISSN 1983-8220.

Substance dependence is one of the most stigmatized health conditions in the world, contributing to its worsening, social exclusion and discrimination. Aware of society's negative perception of their condition, these people can internalize stigma from negative beliefs, feelings and behaviors about themselves. One of the interventions with positive initial evidence to reduce internalized stigma is the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). This study evaluated the feasibility of an ACT-based intervention to reduce internalized stigma among substance addicts. The participants received the conventional treatment of the service, in addition to the intervention consisting of six weekly sessions, conducted by a pair of previously trained therapists. Implementing strategies to reduce internalized stigma can contribute to maintaining the benefits obtained over time, increasing adherence to treatment and the quality of care provided.
