A. Problem Analysis

 1. What was the problem before the implementation of the initiative?
In Brazil, up until the end of the 20th Century, care for people suffering from alcohol and other drugs use/abuse, as well as mental disorder, was offered by secluded mental hospitals, with long-term rehab programs. This model showed a lot of incongruence that violated human rights, resulting in the Psychiatric Reform, which promulgated, in 2001, the Law NO. 10216, aligning the principles, directives, and strategies for a change in the mental health care in Brazil, making it more humanized, with open services and short-term permanence programs. In Pernambuco, in 2004, there was a gradual closing of mental hospitals and the implementation of a network of CAPS AD (Alcohol and Other Drugs Psychosocial Care Center), whose main target population were alcohol and tobacco users. As of 2010, a significant growing number of crack users who sought support at the CAPS – AD was observed. Research shows an increase in the number of people suffering from crack addiction. In 2012, the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation estimated some 370 crack users in Brazil, of which 150 (40%) in the Northeastern Region. In 2010 and 2011 Pernambuco observes a growth in the number of crack busts carried out by the State Narcotics Department – DENARC, in which 450,102.31 Kg of the drug were confiscated in 2010, and 1,220,244.02 Kg in 2011, an increase of 270%. This way, with the growing demand of crack users observed in 2010, it became clear that the existing health care model did not satisfy the public whose profile was directly connected to extreme exposure to violence due to debt to traffickers and/or to the situation they found themselves on the streets. Since then, the need to think up new ways of sheltering crack users has been noted because they were unable to attend CAPS – AD services, as these were offered in the area where the threat lurked, causing evasion and generating a repressed demand that was depleted of adequate sheltering. Concurrently, during the monitoring meeting for the Pact for Life Program – the State of Pernambuco Government Public Security Plan – the item ‘crack user’ was always present in two main scenes: in the first one, this user, due to debt to the dealers, became a potential death victim of those traffickers; in the second one, the understanding that, within the public sphere, the user ended up being approached only by security professionals, resulting in their referral to the prison system. It is understood that, within this context, there is an urgent need for a new model of public service to see to people who make compulsive use of crack, are vulnerable to threats of the traffic, without the possibility of returning to their communities, as well as those whose family ties have been seriously affected. Thus, in 2011, the State Government creates the ATITUDE Program (the Full Care Program for Drug Users and Their Families), regulated by Decree NO. 39201, of March 18th, 2013.

B. Strategic Approach

 2. What was the solution?
The ATITUDE Program, created in September 2011 by the Pernambuco State Government, is a public policy of Full Care for Drug Users and Their Families, connected with the Public Security State Plan Pact for Life, as a strategy of prevention and assistance as established in the State Policy on Drugs, which, through integrated intersectional maneuvers, has as its main objective to guarantee to drug users, particularly crack users, full protection, from primary care to preservation of their physical integrity to the reestablishment of family conviviality. The ATITUDE is planned on a territorial basis, with an emphasis on more vulnerable populations, subject to violence and criminality resulting from drug use. That way, the program has crack and other drug users as its target population, threatened by drug dealers, facing difficulty returning to their communities and family life. The Program started being developed in 2010, based on studies/scenarios that hinted the urgent need for a new model of public service for people who make compulsive use of crack and are in a vulnerable situation and under threat, added to the results obtained after the realization of six Regional Conferences on Drugs, through the State of Pernambuco Government call, with the main purpose of hearing the public opinion and improving public policy in this area. With 1,200 representatives from health segments as well as social assistance, public security, education, NGOs, drug users, family members, religious institutions, and private initiative, the conferences resulted in strategic directives that, after compilation of the proposals, sanctioned the State Policy on Drugs, by the Law NO. 14561/2011. In this context, coordinated actions within the scope of the Public Power were designed to take care of the target population from a broader perspective. So, still in 2010, a strategy was outlined to specify and implement a program that could solve this problem. The strategy was subdivided into eight objectives. The first objective consisted of developing a multidisciplinary government program with actions structured with all the other State secretariats involved in this issue to ascertain joint and articulated actions between the several segments of the government. The second one aimed at combining the program with the State Public Policy of Drug Enforcement, strategically compiling the priority public policies, becoming part of the Government’s Strategy Map, monitored by the Pernambuco Management Integrated Model through its monitoring procedures. The third objective structures the program as a Government’s organizational unit, with clear positions and job descriptions and with direct execution from Social Organizations. The forth one is aimed at gradually implementing the program, prioritizing and acting upon the municipalities with the worst indicators of intentional lethal violent crime rate in the State, defining expansion growth in the areas covered by the program. The fifth objective defined actions and methodological processes of services, comprising, primarily, interventions that respected the principles and parameters of Social Assistance, upholding the right to citizenship, with focus on generating autonomy of drug users and their families. The sixth objective consisted of promoting articulated actions with the municipalities, NGOs, and the society, constituting a network of solidarity between actions carried out by all these entities. The seventh one worked on guaranteeing self-budgeting in a way that would prevent the budget set for this program was not absorbed by other initiatives. And finally, the eight objective, aimed at assessing the program, aligning and adjusting resources, with a view to manage the program effectively, monitoring its performance indicators, identifying and offsetting possible differences between planning and execution.

 3. How did the initiative solve the problem and improve people’s lives?
It is creative and innovative in its proposal to care for the drug users and their families, showing interventions that approximate their realities, acting directly on the development of the conditions for independence, self-care, and rescue of social and family ties of the users, contemplating the logistics for 24-hour sheltering with a focus on those who, because of the compulsive/uncontrolled use of drugs, got involved in a relationship that pushes them into violence caused by debts, and incapacity to get back to their communities. It innovates as it is concerned with the urge felt by drug users, offering the care whenever they seek it. Whenever there is an assessment by the specialists and the need is confirmed, sheltering is granted. Open-doors service with low demand attracts the users who had never tried another service, which reduces the damage caused by social disadvantages and violence. Still worth mentioning is the use of simple but effective instruments in the capture/fidelization of users, with socializing approach on the streets through a work of approximation/sensitization on the scenes of use, with ludicrous techniques using puppets, theater, and music, giving the street environment another meaning, making connections with the professionals and the referrals effectively done.

C. Execution and Implementation

 4. In which ways is the initiative creative and innovative?
According to the strategy previously planned, after the closing of the studies and the consolidated document with its premises, objectives and definitions of the governing structure and actions to be taken, the ATITUDE Program was created in September 2011 and regulated in 2013 by State Governor Decree, conditioned to the public policies of High Complexity Special Social Protection, in conjunction with Pact for Life – aiming at developing conditions for the independence, self-care, and the users’ family and social ties, as well as contributing to the exercise of citizenship, contributing to the prevention and reduction of violence/crime rates. Still in 2011, with articulated actions among the 14 state secretariats, the organizational structure of the program was conceived and the positions involved were defined. There were also articulations with the municipalities, NGOs, and society in general, comprehending a network of solidarity between the programs and actions developed by all those entities. Over the same period there is the inclusion of the program among the priority goals of the government, moving on to an effective implementation of the actions of the program to assist municipalities with a higher rate of CVLI (Intentional Lethal Violent Crime). Initially, the work was carried out on the scenes of crack consumption, with professionals of Social Assistance doing their job within the users’ territory, with their needs identified. Such methodology helped format the program’s direct action plan split into four modalities, generating the need to work on the streets, as well as specialized sheltering centers. Thus, for the effective implementation of the assistance to drug users, more specifically, crack users, actions begin to be taken through a mobile and territorialized service, offering in a continued and programmed way on streets, squares, under overdrives, communities, intended to build a connection with users to safeguard their rights, reduce risks of damage associated to the consumption of crack and other drugs. This modality is established as Atitude nas Ruas. Related to this process, the Center for shelter and Support is created and set to be open 24/7, with a multidisciplinary team that ensures immediate, humanizing sheltering and primary care, making use of a tactful approach, with low demand, with actions well thought out based on user demand. There are also actions of Intensive Sheltering, this one working 24 hours a day, in a home care fashion, where users stay from 2 to 6 months, depending on the seriousness of the case, aiming at outlining a new plan for life. And to complete the modalities of the program’s interventions, the Social Rent/Dormitory action was created, through house renting for an average of six months, with possible extension, for serve the target audience that cannot return to their community due to impending threats, or for not even having where to get back to for being a street dweller. In 2013, the program becomes the permanent policy of care for crack users in the State, with improved sheltering of the target population, and support from the World Bank is sought through public policy development credit operation, known as Development Policy Loan, reinforcing the execution of strategy through raising and strengthening of budgets for the program’s actions. Nowadays, reaching out to the Recife Metropolitan Area, besides the municipalities of Caruaru, Floresta and other surrounding municipalities, through 5 centers, located in Recife, Jaboatão dos Guararapes, Cabode Santo Agostinho, Caruaru and Floresta, and managing resurces worth around R$ 12 thousand, annually, the program involves more than 100 professionals working directly close to the drug users and their family, interacting with managers and coordinators, who monitor and assess the ongoing of the program and its results.

 5. Who implemented the initiative and what is the size of the population affected by this initiative?
In 2010, the State Governor, in light of the scenarios/studies, made a commitment with the population to fight the problem of growing crack consumption in Pernambuco. From this perspective, he deliberates the articulation of 14 Secretariats (Human Rights and Social Development; Education; Health; Social Defense; Labor, Qualification and Entrepreneurship; Municipalities; Children and Youth; Sports; Regional and Social Articulation; Culture; Women; Staff; Management and Planning; and Press Office), besides the Judiciary Power and the Military and Civilian Police Forces with the intent of building the main premises and actively collaborate with the implementation and execution of a program aimed solely at drug users and their families. In response to the request, together with representatives from said sectors, the Chamber of Crack Enforcement is created through Decree NO. 35065/2010. With weekly meetings, these agents take part, uninterruptedly, in the process of making and monitoring public policies on drugs, in which the ATITUDE Program is inserted. In this phase, there is the participation of other actors such as City Halls, NGOs, social organizations, the organized civil society and universities. Another important partner in this implementation was the Word Bank, through the public policies development credit operation named DPL (Development Policy Loan), as well as international organization Open Society Foundation, which cooperated by bringing internationally renowned specialists for training local professionals and advising with assessment processes. Management of the ATITUDE Program was initially a responsibility of the High Complexity Management from the Human Rights and Social Development Secretariat. Later, it was turned to the newly created General Management of Policy on Drugs. Currently, the Program is conducted through partnerships, where management contracts are signed between the State Government and Social Organizations such as the Center for the Prevention of Addiction; the Social Development and teaching Institute; the Brazilian Center for Recycling and Professional Training.
 6. How was the strategy implemented and what resources were mobilized?
With the envisioning of the program and effective actions already begun in 2011, with its management done by the General Management of Policy on Drugs from the Human Rights and Social Development Secretariat, structured on three important pillars: street approach; 24-hour sheltering; and social rent, as far as human resources and materials are concerned, for the development of their activities, ten vehicles were provided for the Teams of Social Approach on Streets, making up a total of 15 rotary teams, which meant a universe of 45 professionals, each team consisting of a driver, a psychologist or social assistant, and a social educator. Input such as mineral water, condoms, lubricant, juice, coconut water, among others, as well as ludicrous materials such as percussion instruments, circus gadgets, books for storytelling. Still within this given context, in the sheltering units, be it in the Support Sheltering Center or the Center for Intensive Sheltering, both use a total of 12 houses with cozy environment, equipped with a living room, cafeteria, kitchen, games and TV room, individual and group activities room, dorms, sports courts, swimming pool, and garden. Food items are also necessary for the centers, for an average six meals a day, for 40 users a day, per center, besides hygiene items. Also, drawing and pedagogical materials, goods for cooking workshops, recycling, handicrafts, among others. In addition to that, there are 4 5-passenger vehicles to support the Center for Intensive Sheltering. The Centers’ teams are composed of about 10 professionals with a degree in psychology, social assistance, physical education, nursery, among others. Plus eight social educators, eight workshop instructors, a technical coordinator, two supervisors for each Support Sheltering Center and a supervisor for each Center for Intensive Sheltering. There is still a supervisor for nutrition, whose objective is to supervise all the centers’ food preparation and storage routine. In the modality Social Rent, 40 fully furnished houses with residential characteristics are used. The houses accommodate up to 4 people each, with each user receiving a staple food basket. These houses also count on 4 5-passenger vehicles. This crack user autonomy process involves approximately ten specific professionals. The program also relies on outside consultancy, in the shape of technical support for the praxis developed. As far as financial resources are concerned, from 2011 to 2014, the program has already handled R$ 51 million. Initially, the resources needed for the execution of the specific activities for the program and its maintenance were allocated annually from the State budget, with the support of investments in partnership with the World Bank. The program’s execution modality happened initially through the “OSCIP” – Public Interest Civil Society Organizations – and today it has been executed by Social Organizations whose Advisory Board is paired up with representatives of the public power.

 7. Who were the stakeholders involved in the design of the initiative and in its implementation?
The main result of the program is a reduction of violence rate by 8.05% in areas covered by the ATITUDE Program, between 2011/2014. Since its implementation, the ATITUDE has significantly increased the number of crack users included in the social policies of the program according to the specificity of each case. The street approach teams have already carried out 24,500 approaches certifying that the target population is effectively served. This result was achieved through active search and mapping by the roaming teams. The modality immerges into the lives of those individuals, generating a direct result, because the service done on the streets guarantees access to the users’ territory. Other successful results are those of the Support Sheltering Centers. This practice allowed complete and intensive sheltering to more than 1,600 users, 90% of whom are crack users. Besides, 43,000 overnight services were offered between Sep2011/Jun2014. Another result: the Centers for Intensive Sheltering, open 24/7, in homecare style, in which users stay 2 to 6 months, depending on the seriousness of each case, have already registered an increase of 6% on the monthly goals. This modality has been developing a new life project, protecting users against situations of life threat, and reestablishing family ties, bringing users back to school, technical courses, and activities aiming at inserting those people back into the job market. The program also generated the development of user autonomy, conditioned to education, health and work. This result has been achieved by the modality Social Rent/Dorm – 22 homes rented for accommodation for six months, offered to the public that cannot return to their community due to a situation of threat, or to a lack of home reference resulting from living on the streets. Other benefits have been observed: the contribution to the formulation of other public policies, with the effective making of a state law that regulates the criteria for hiring companies that provide outsourced services to the State. Special emphasis is put on Law NO. 15209/2013, which guarantees that at least 2% of those hired companies will come from the program. Lastly, the guarantee of the right to citizenship, given the fact that many users do not possess any documentation, being unable to exercise basic rights. The program works on rescuing documents or obtaining them for the first time. Since its implementation, the program has already promoted the production of personal documents for more than 1,200 users.

 8. What were the most successful outputs and why was the initiative effective?
The program is monitored uninterruptedly through the program Pact for Life, by the Technical Chamber of Crack Enforcement, and through co-management with Assemblies and Information Systems. At the weekly Pact for Life meetings, the care services conducted by the ATITUDE Program the previous week are presented, seeking to observe the most critical areas as regards crack consumption and the more specific demands, always aligning with the main indicator of violence reduction – the CVLI (Intentional Lethal Violent Crime), which counts the number of murders per 100 thousand inhabitants. Soon, the activity allows for analyzing and monitoring, in a critical way, the number of users seen by the program and for planning new actions to be realized in each developing region of the State. The Technical Chamber of Crack Enforcement, also with weekly meetings, has the intent of planning, coordinating, executing, monitoring and evaluating the actions of enforcement on crack and other drugs in the State of Pernambuco. Fourteen Government Secretariats take part in this process, permanently and systematically, dealing with the theme of drugs across the agendas and actions of the secretariats, in line with the principles and directives of the interdisciplinary actions. Among the activities developed in the centers of the ATITUDE Program, there is the space of co-management of the Assembly. This is about a moment of internal evaluation, with the presence and active participation of all he technical team, together with the users and their families, generating a rich exchange of knowledge, where users and their families debate critically the centers actions, thus, promoting the exercise of citizenship and stimulating social participation. These are open spaces for debate, inserted in the activities program and that happen systematically twice a month. More than 525 assemblies have taken place in all ATITUDE Program homes. The information system is done on electronic spreadsheets with the use of data consolidation tools. The compilation of information is done daily and online by the technical team of the centers. The data consists of individual and group care with users, family care, discharges, daily attendance, overnight records, profile of users that access the services, referrals done, records of risk profiles with the account of the threat targets, users coming from correctional facilities and the number of users in debt, etc.

 9. What were the main obstacles encountered and how were they overcome?
Among the problems dealt with the main one was identifying users that were threatened because of debt to drug traffic, and that prior to the program had no access to protection and care programs, having the service totally turned to questions of health, making it necessary to have a service that would attend to health issues on the streets. Another problem among the obstacles was the difficulty found in relation to the programs addresses, which were full. The neighborhood around the facility showed discontentment about the installation of the service, increasing the prejudice towards users. Continuous efforts were needed to act and intervene in the community. As a strategy, a few primordial agents from the area were called to discuss the objective of the service being implemented in that community. Another obstacle encountered was the alignment of the actors involved, regarding the intersectional aspect of the program, which was mostly overcome with the weekly meeting of the Crack Enforcement Chamber, attended by the 14 State Secretariats, representatives of the judiciary power, the Military Police, and municipalities and society representatives. One more challege faced by the program was related to the care intended for pregnant users of crack, who found themselves socially vulnerable, exposed to violence and prostitution, and had difficulty being fit into one of the care modalities of the program, and presenting issues related to their genre such as the household, children, husband, and on several occasions for being the breadwinner. It was necessary to create a service to cover for these particular cases, besides working on raising their self-esteem and their awareness of valuing and being the masters of their own body, promoting better quality of life and their babies.

D. Impact and Sustainability

 10. What were the key benefits resulting from this initiative?
The main impact in adopting the program was clearly the reduction of violence and crime rate observed in the areas covered. From its creation till 2014 there has been a drop of 8.05%, contributing to the drop in the State indicator, with reference to Intentional Lethal Violent Crimes. A meaningful reduction was also observed as regards vulnerability, personal and/or social risk associated with violence and crime connected due to drug use. With a priority focus on crack users, the program has already served over 6,000 people, 71% of whom being crack users, 34% from the prison system, 41% in debt with the traffic, and 54% having been threatened with death owing to those debts. Nevertheless, as important as the drop in crime rate, the implementation of this program gave users the opportunity to change their lifestyle, offering not only space and care, but also protection. By the care data records it is possible to note that the program has been achieving its goals, once the fact that users are under care minimizes the chance of their return to outlaw activities which would result in arrest or risk of death for being under threat in their territory. The promotion of caring and sensitization of crack users to be in charge of their own lives and seek assistance, including those whose lives had been disorganized and vulnerable, accounts for the significant impact of the initiative making a difference in the offer of public services. As intersection public policy, the program brought the service to the referred target population. Around 20% of the service aimed at female users, the program has proven very important for women users of crack, once they were bound to lose custody of their children due to abusive drug use. The Program’s team of professionals ensures the rights of children and adolescents, involving not only the mother and child, but also other family members, promoting better relationship between them and strengthening family ties to safeguard rights and protection of the children. Another impact of the program is the fact of attending to people who were previously addressed only by public security agents. Those users have found on ATITUDE a safe haven, be it for basic hygiene and food care or for building a new life project. The relationship that has been developed with the police, mainly through the monitoring of the Pact for Life Program and the Crack Enforcement Chamber, is reflected as a benefit to society, causing a true paradigm shift in the way users are treated by the police. The approach has become much more humanized, making a distinction between crack users and dealers. A clear example of this paradigm shift lies in the fact that some referrals were made by the police officers themselves, who, during the approach, identified the need to bring users to a shelter, be it due to drug abuse or to a situation of threat. With the ATITUDE, it became possible to focus on caring and sheltering drug users, promoting citizen autonomy, peaceful family and community living, as well as access to quality public services. That is, the execution of the program through its actions on its 4 modalities of caring and sheltering drug users, more specifically crack users, has shown an average growth of 17% above the goals set for the month. It has also caused a direct impact on the promotion of inclusion, consolidating people’s rights to citizenship, reestablishing the central role of the family, understanding the diverse family shapes and sizes, promoting respect to human dignity and safeguarding the service to all against prejudice and discrimination of any sort, resulting in an improvement of the services offered to drug users, developing factors of social protection and reducing the risk of violence.

 11. Did the initiative improve integrity and/or accountability in public service? (If applicable)
The efforts made to guarantee sustainability of the program are shown on several fronts: its confirmation as public policy through promulgation of Laws as strategy of prevention and assistance as set by the State Policy on Drugs, in the efforts to document its processes, in the consolidation of intersectional actions, in the growing budgeting for the realization of its actions, and in its dissemination and visibility. The ATITUDE Program was made a State Public Policy, regulated by Decree NO. 39201/2013, which validates it for the State of Pernambuco as a program of Full Care to Drug Users and their family, typified in the Special Social Protection of High Complexity of the National Policy of Social Assistance, connected with the Public Security State Plan – Pact for Life – as a strategy of prevention and assistance, stated in the State Policy on Drugs, instituted by Law NO. 14561 of December 26, 2011. Aimed at guaranteeing standardization and recording of practices, documents have been produced that relate its practices presenting a methodological proposal to be followed. As regards its intersectional aspects, the program has been consolidating as public policy in the issue of drugs, showing legitimate spaces of management and co-management from the State of Pernambuco Government. Initially, the program was managed by the High Complexity Management of the Human rights and Social Development Secretariat. However, with the effectiveness of its actions, its management was turned to the General Management of Policy on Drugs of said Secretariat. The growing budgeting has allowed for an increase in the outreach of the Program. Due to it being a State policy, it shows its own annual budgeting, which ensures the execution of all its services. When it comes to the dissemination of the initiative, to obtain State, National and International visibility, the program is seen as a model and, as such, the centers are visited by national guests such as the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Justice, as well as the National Secretariat of Policy on Drugs. Other visitors are professionals from the international organization Open Society Foundations, with the intent of understanding how the program works, from its infrastructure to the methodological proposal applied. At a State level, due to its regional character, it is disseminated in all twelve Pernambuco Development Regions through partnership with Social Assistance Secretariats of the municipalities, or through integrated actions with other Social Programs developed by the Human Rights and Social Development Secretariat, such as the Government Present Program, the VIDA NOVA Program, and the Human Rights Week. On the occasion there are workshops, talks, technical support, among others. Special emphasis is given to its academic characteristic at a national and international level, resulting from the realization of the International Seminary on Drugs and Damage Reduction, with speakers from the international organization Open Society Foundations, from Pernambuco, Salvador, and São Paulo. Besides the publication of scientific papers about the ATITUDE in conferences in Uberlândia, Rio de Janeiro, Maceió, Brasília, Mjnas Gerais, Colômbia, and Portugal, and also in scientific magazines.

 12. Were special measures put in place to ensure that the initiative benefits women and girls and improves the situation of the poorest and most vulnerable? (If applicable)
The experience in implementing/operating a project of this magnitude, aimed at a public in such need, and with a challenging purpose, has given us opportunities for learning such as: Initially, it is possible to weave a network of care and protection aimed at facing violence and vulnerability, resulting from the use of crack and other drugs Thus, prejudices and stigmas pointing at the public served, as something incipient, give room to new possibilities of life care, in the context in which the user is found as the subject of rights and duties, and starting from the assumption that the care will be offered together with the user, respecting his/her individuality. Secondly, by breaking barriers of impositions and repressions, favoring the decision making by individuals being helped, we widen our look on caring and ensure the right to life. Upon looking over the history of violence in Pernambuco, we notice a high rate of homicides related to drug trafficking. So, the ATITUDE consolidates as State public policy to handle violence by broadening the concept of damage reduction in its interventions, understanding that it is possible to reduce the vulnerability of users. Therefore, the inexistence of places that guarantee this intersection makes it legitimate from a new perspective and possibility of care. The development of the work aimed at the needs of the public served allowed the promotion of the spaces of participation and co-management, directly involving users and families in the planning and assessment of activities. So, needs which emerged in those spaces, such as a specific center for pregnant/breast-feeding women and the legitimization of the Law of Employability, have become a reality. The practice of involving/listening to the diverse actors implies taking a closer look into the local reality and favoring the conception of more effective and inclusive public policies. From this perspective, intersectional partnerships were also fomented with NGOs, GOs, the civil society, councils, which made it possible to use the territory as a space of itinerary intervention, enjoying its potentialities and allowing a look turned to the needs of each area. Another learned lesson was a new look from the Public Security system over crack users, who, prior to that, were seen in the intervention as the focus of arrest, rather than having access and the right to a proper care service. With ATITUDE, a new form of intervention promotes the referral of users to the services of protection and care, in a voluntary fashion. Therefore, three years of activity gathered positive impact and results, through effective reduction of violence rates, making use of strategies of low demand, with a focus on investing on subjects in situation of vulnerability. The reflex of such actions on the lives of those who have been through the program is positive. Upon managing to reestablish family, affective, and community ties, users are brought back to the job market, take back their studies through training courses or regular school programs, and, most importantly, recognize themselves as active subjects and builders of realities.
