MASCARENHAS, Amália Beatriz Dias  and  DIAS, Isadora. The criminalization of drug use and the criminalization for drug use - one proposal of work with chemical addicted in the context of a socioeducational center in Fortaleza, Ceará. Rev. NUFEN [online]. 2011, vol.3, n.1, pp.165-182. ISSN 2175-2591.

In this research we propose a kind of practical intervention, where the focus is the issue of drug addiction inside the house of privation of freedom to teenagers in conflict with the law, in the city of Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil. Although the socio-educational center doesn't work with this question, our proposal aims to consider this specific demand that related criminality and psychoactive drugs. By the way, we have considered the particularities of the workplace, including the probable limitations of the work. Thus, it is a project to abusive consumers of crack, created jointly by two psychologists that work in the psychological sector. One of them uses humanistic approach such as reference to her practice. The other one uses behavior analysis. This proposal was based on notions of harm reduction, enhancement of life and the pursuit of human dignity. We propose, as practical methods, questionnaires applied, individual interviews, group meetings, family guidance and creation of external networks of support.

Keywords : Drug addiction; Criminality; Harm Reduction; Privation of Freedom; Adolescence.
