The client is the one who voluntarily requests hospitalization, or who consents to her and at the time of admission, signs a document, that is, a statement that she has opted for this treatment regime.The end of hospitalization is by written request of the patient or by the doctor responsible.

Involuntary hospitalization

The client’s family, a drug addict or alcoholic, who has already lost his or her judgment and critical sense about the risk to life to which he is exposed and the danger to the people with whom he relates.

When substance abuse has reached a stage where the person has his or her psychic capacity compromised and cannot, by itself, seek treatment.

In such a case, the hospitalization is triggered by relatives who are related to blood (parents, children, grandparents, uncles, nephews), who will sign an authorization. The spouses do not hold this permission.

Once the request is made, the drug addict will be examined by a doctor, who will issue a report stating the need or not for hospitalization. In this type of hospitalization, the request may be made directly with a clinic that specializes in treating drug addicts.

Compulsory hospitalization

Being determined by the court, compulsory hospitalization is made in the face of the failure of other means of alternative treatments and with a medical report that prescribes treatment, provided that there is no family member who can be responsible for the drug addict.
