Drugs Unit

The Drugs Unit aims to provide technical and administrative advice to Serpaj centers and programs that form part of a web of treatment for people with problematic consumption of drugs.

Twenty three intervention programs exist throughout the country from the Iquipue Region in Northern Chile to the Aysén Region in Southern Chile.

Through the work carried out by interdisciplinary teams, the Drugs Unit provides outpatient and residential treatment for adults, youth who violated Law 20.084, and youth without law infractions.

The programs act in partnership with public agencies whose interdisciplinary teams of psychologists, social workers, doctors, occupational therapists, rehabilitation experts, and educators grant specialized clinical attention to clients through a biopsychosocial model.
