Halfway Houses for Alcohol Dependents: From Theoretical Bases to Implications for the Organization of Facilities

By Alessandra Diehl Reis and Ronaldo Laranjeira

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to supply a narrative review of the concepts, history, functions, methods, development and theoretical bases for the use of halfway houses for patients with mental disorders, and their correlations, for the net construction of chemical dependence model. This theme, in spite of its relevance, is still infrequently explored in the national literature. The authors report international and national uses of this model and discuss its applicability for the continuity of services for alcohol dependents. The results suggest that this area is in need of more attention and interest for future research
