FERRARI, Ilka Franco  and  JANUZZI, Mônica Eulália da Silva. Teenage drug users and "social disinsertion". Rev. Subj. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.3, pp. 1-13. ISSN 2359-0769.

The text in question sought to answer how the difficulties of adherence to treatment, presented by adolescent drug users, can benefit the work carried out in the Psychosocial Care Centers of Children-Juvenile (CAPSi) of the state of Minas Gerais. It highlights, among others, the difficulty that has been called "social disinsertion." The theoretical/practical field of psychoanalysis guided the work through the unique case method, which allows universalized results respecting the singularities, that is, a universal achieved from the singular. Fragments of the semi-structured interviews conducted with the five youths studied, indicated by the service teams because they are considered paradigmatic of those who had difficulties with adherence, and with the professionals who accompanied them are used to support the considerations presented, considering the cartography of their lives involved in the process. It was found that the effects of symbolic dismissals of the Other, in the contemporary, have favored the establishment of subjective modes of social disconnection, such as drug addiction, and that the way disinsertion appears, in the uniqueness of each case, in the context of adolescence, indicates the presence of a social symptom of the time. Young people's disbelief in their relationship with the Other Social appears in their relationship with CAPSi, an Institutional Other. But when this Other becomes an exception and presents itself as a place of care, presence, and interest for the subject, changes occur between disinsertion and possible insertion, leading the subject to find a place in the Other, not disappearing in the collective of public politics.

Keywords : adolescence; deinsertion"; drugs; psychoanalysis.
