Drug and Alcohol Abuse
Our rehabilitation programs target youth and adults who are living in poverty and struggling with drug and alcohol abuse. Paréntesis, a program of the Hogar de Cristo Foundation, welcomes this population, provides assistance, and promotes their dignity and social inclusion. It also assists in the recovery process of juvenile offenders with drug and alcohol abuse problems.
It can be challenging to return to life after rehabilitation. The poor have fewer opportunities, and for this reason, we advocate for the social integration of those with alcohol and drug abuse problems and ask our community for support in creating public policies for our society.
Outpatient Therapy Program: We provide comprehensive and specialized treatments to help young people and adults in the recovery process, to end problematic use of alcohol and drugs, and facilitate their reintegration into the family, school, community and workplace.
Inpatient Therapy Program: This program targets at-risk youth and adults with drug and alcohol abuse problems. Our residential programs support the rehabilitation process, strengthening the psychosocial conditions of men and women.
Specialized programs for children and adolescents: For children, adolescents, youth living on the streets, and juvenile offenders who are exposed to drugs and alcohol. Our programs seek to improve social integration, to promote and exercise the rights of these minors, and to ensure their security and safety. Included in this category are the residential program, outpatient program, psychosocial and community intervention programs for children and teens.
