At present, there are several resocialization facilities in Slovakia, whose focus in the management of drug addiction lies in group (community) therapy. Their purpose is to overcome the psychological, physical and social consequences of drug and other addictions and to enable participation in life in the natural environment. A longer stay in a resocialization facility (RF) can be initiated by the adult client himself / herself, a parent, a social and legal protection institute and guardianship or a court. The entry to RF is usually accompanied by cooperation with health professionals (from the field of psychiatry and clinical psychology), even if the current law has waived the condition of previous detoxification in a health facility (most facilities, however, require previous successful outpatient or inpatient treatment). The financing of residential therapy in the RF stems from multiple sources (local authorities, financial grants, etc.), but the financial participation of the client is also assumed. If the stay in the RF is ordered on the basis of social and legal protection and guardianship of children, it is financed from the resources of the Ministry of Labor, Social Affairs and Family.
