Centers for the treatment of drug addictions (CFTODA) or specialized departments for the treatment of drug addictions in psychiatric hospitals (DFTODA) are facilities dedicated to the treatment of all substance and non-substance addictions. If you are interested in treatment, it is important to visit your psychiatrist, who will write you a proposal for treatment and send the proposal to the selected facility. In the case of an acute condition, detoxification treatment in the catchment area before onset is recommended first (it is possible to complete it in a specific CFTODA). The proposal will be sent to the medical examiner of the relevant health insurance company and after receiving the consent you will receive an invitation to treatment with a specific start date.
