  8. 8. Commitment| Solidarity| Tolerance| Internacionality… Inspiring Change! Dianova Portugal© 8 Coordination Prof.ª Doutora Susana Henriques, CIES-ISCTE-IUL Main Goal • To capture Social regularities and singularities present on social reintegration of individuals associated with social, family and individual patterns to acquired skills during the therapeutic process on on individuals who have completed treatment between 1999-2009 the program at Dianova Therapeutic Community Quinta das Lapas (Management Quality System ISO 9001:2008 implemented since 2005, with empirical control over quality indicators).
  9. 9. Commitment| Solidarity| Tolerance| Internacionality… Inspiring Change! Dianova Portugal© 9 • Main questions to be addressed: – Which are the reinforcement and vulnerability factors associated with the reintegration trajectories? – Which changes occurred in the life style after the therapeutic process (regarding relationship towards drugs, life project, social networks, activities…)? – Which were the agents of support to the reintegration process (family, friends, therapeutic team, other social support structures…)? Coordination Prof.ª Doutora Susana Henriques, CIES-ISCTE-IUL Main Goal
  10. 10. Commitment| Solidarity| Tolerance| Internacionality… Inspiring Change! Dianova Portugal© 10 Methodology • 3 Main Phases (developed between 2010 and 2013) 1. Analysis of administrative processes (n=178) of the Therapeutic Community users that have completed treatment between 1999- 2009, including individual records filled regarding life history, criminal records and medical examinations, in order to characterize the socioeconomic demographic and drug consumptions 2. Phone interviews (n=63) in order to follow-up and identify changes on life trajectories of individuals such as the stop of drug use, to know the social trajectories, identify obstacles and facilitators of family, professional and social reintegration 3. In-depth interviews (n=17) – partial life stories through life grid, ethnographic notes and auto-photographic studies – to a specific group identified as relevant to the problem of the study according to its reintegration trajectories’ characteristics Note: As almost scientific longitudinal Follow-up Studies demonstrate there is a difficulty in maintaining the individuals under participation along the years,, due to the specific subject and the characteristics of the studied population, which might constitute a study limitation

  27. 27. Commitment| Solidarity| Tolerance| Internacionality… Inspiring Change! Dianova Portugal© 27 Family as supporting factor: “Had psychological help from my family and that aspect was as important as helping me in the matter of food, because I vented a lot with my father, I would open up everything, anything I vented to speak with him, now I get along very well with him, if I need to vent or need advice I have him on hand or my sisters.” …and as complicating factor: “One can change, but the family does not change or changes very little, is always doubting on you, and now and then they remind it to you "eh that was fifteen years ago, I've paid for it all!“. It is not this way that they will help me to move on.” Phase 3 Final Results Understanding Reintegration on Individuals’ perspective Reinforcement factors vs Limiting factors
  28. 28. Commitment| Solidarity| Tolerance| Internacionality… Inspiring Change! Dianova Portugal© 28 The change of residence 1. support on work environment or among friends 2. autonomy: “I am my own therapist ... and since 2007 that I'm out here, free of alcohol, and drugs [...] Myself alone, therefore without my parents, without my brother [...] There were times in which I was at home on the computer, playing a game, and I felt like a beer, so I picked on me and went to the coffee bar, grabbed a bottle of water, took a coffee and left.” Phase 3 Final Results Understanding Reintegration on Individuals’ perspective Reinforcement factors vs Limiting factors
  29. 29. Commitment| Solidarity| Tolerance| Internacionality… Inspiring Change! Dianova Portugal© 29 The return to the old residence place 1. contact with old use habits 2. residence in small towns or villages with high(er) social control: “When I came they only talked about “ when will she relapse?” A guy comes in to the coffe bar and listens: hein!... And one fakes he did not ear” 3. Return to a close environment in which the user was raised when drug addict: “[Do you believe if You would not be here it would be easier?] I do, because I was in Alpiarça for 6 months, it was I to have that had to go to the pharmacy (…) and people around knew that it belonged to Dianova and they always treated me well… always with respect.” Phase 3 Final Results Understanding Reintegration on Individuals’ perspective Reinforcement factors vs Limiting factors
  30. 30. Commitment| Solidarity| Tolerance| Internacionality… Inspiring Change! Dianova Portugal© 30 1. Completing treatment without feeling fully ready 2. The shock of returning to the old residence place: “I was dropped off, I had the feeling that my house was strange to me, I was almost for a year there, and because of fear they left me stay there a little longer, only that there was a time when I was told “You have to go, have to go” 3. Take use to the new routines: “And then it's into the routine, prepare my children to go to school, prepare lunch and all those little things that I had forgotten there” 4. Economic difficulties and unemployment periods Phase 3 Final Results Understanding Reintegration on Individuals’ perspective Reinforcement factors vs Limiting factors
  31. 31. Commitment| Solidarity| Tolerance| Internacionality… Inspiring Change! Dianova Portugal© 31 Phase 3 Final Results Trajectories, from drug addiction to reintegration Conclusions • Five main social trajectories: Residencial, Marital Status, Work, Capabilities (Education or Training), Substance consumption • Residencial trajectories emerge as most relevant (change residence to get away from use environments) • Capability is crucial to the reintegration process (rights of access, social freedom and mobility, recognition of identities and merit reward) • Regarding the 3 factors related with the therapeutic process the correlation is always positive: the more years have passed since the treatment completion, the longer the duration of the treatment and the much better the treatment evaluation is, the higher the values of the IRST (Ex-Drug Users Social Reintegration Index)
  32. 32. Commitment| Solidarity| Tolerance| Internacionality… Inspiring Change! Dianova Portugal© 32 Future Research • Due to the reduced sample and lack of statistical representativeness of the empirical basis of work, more in-depth interviews (qualitative analysis) are crucial to enrich the study, as well as the need of replication of the proposed Index, • future research should be developed in order to validate • its strength • and to confirm whether a successful reintegration depends more on the post-treatment process than on the individuals’ characteristics (such as sex, age, education…)
