Abstract

Social inclusion through the work of a chemical dependent user undergoing treatment in Psychosocial Care Centers - Alcohol and other drugs (CAPS AD) should be part of the rehabilitation process. Once, this promotes the social identity, self-esteem and emotional support of people in situations of abuse or dependence on alcohol and other drugs. In this experience report, our objective is to present the inclusion project for the work developed in a CAPS-AD. The project was developed and implemented by Occupational therapists. The group's activities were carried out in eight meetings, with dynamics directed to the discussion of self-care and self-esteem; interpersonal communication and relationships at work; job interview; autonomy and independence; behavior control; and culture of social inclusion for work and the barriers present in this process. It was observed that the discussions motivated and aroused awareness about strategies for social insertion through work. Thus, it is concluded that, like this project, it is necessary to create possibilities for the development of therapeutic strategies focused on social insertion for work among drug addicts.
