Abstract

This manuscript presents an experience report with some activities that the Reference Center on Drugs and Associated Vulnerabilities - CRR, ‘Faculdade Ceilândia’/University of Brasilia - UNB implemented and developed in 2013. This account allows us to reflect on the process of building partnerships based on social networks and the notion of territory for people with problems related to drugs and their associated vulnerability. The experience follows the current national framework, in which the social network has become a central paradigm of public practices and policies (e.g. Law 10.216/2001). These changes occur in the model of care for people with mental disorders, including the integral health policy for users and dependents of alcohol and other drugs. The CRR team mapped local social networks, i.e. several public institutions in different sectors, in four municipalities: one in the Federal District (Brazlândia) and three in the state of Goiás (Valparaiso, Luziânia, Águas Lindas). After the mapping, the CRR team sought to articulate and establish an agenda to discuss alcohol and drug use and its associated vulnerabilities among these different institutions, sectors and professionals, e.g. nurses, physicians, occupational therapists, social
workers, and police officers. This strategy enabled several actors to develop and qualify their local intersectorial network, which consequently qualifies the integral care actions, as recommended by several national policies.
