General information about the treatment and rehabilitation program for drugs, alcohol and strong medications in Cuba.

Drug Rehabilitation

Drug rehabilitation treatment in Cuba is intended to help the addict stop the compulsive search and consumption of drugs and strong drugs. Since drug addiction is often a chronic disorder characterized by occasional relapses, a single, short-term course of treatment is generally not sufficient. In many patients, treatment is a long-term process that involves constant supervision.

In coordination with the Cuban Medical Services, we offer a program for the rehabilitation of people with addiction problems to legal and illegal drugs.

The knowledge and experience of our professionals in more than 25 years of working with drug-dependent patients, has allowed us to have a therapeutic arsenal that ensures satisfactory results in the rehabilitation process.
