VASCONCELOS, Michele de Freitas Faria de et al. Psychosocial care and primary care: life as territory in the field. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2018, vol.8, n.1, pp. 212-231. ISSN 2238-152X.

From discussions developed within research, training, practice and intervention processes with public policies in the State of Sergipe, this article aims to analyse, discuss and vitalise various concepts and notions within public health practices related to issues of alcohol and drug care: health, drugs, vulnerability, inclusion/exclusion, harm reduction, citizenship, territory and human rights. The intention behind examining and problematising these concepts is informed, firstly, by a questioning and sidetracking of the prevalent ways of planning and thinking about delivery of alcohol and drug care, and, secondly, to vitalise the field, to the extent that these problematisations can bring out the force of wider meaning and qualification to modes of intervention, rather than directly translating them into discursive and non-discursive practices of adaptation, disenfranchisement and homogenisation of the social.

Keywords : Public Policy; Public Health; Conceptual Policy; Alcohol and Drugs.
