Impact of Pandemic on Addiction Treatment Centers in Latin America

Preliminary report of the study "Overall impact of the pandemic in the Addiction Treatment Centers of Latin America", which aims to explain the overall impact of pandemic and isolation measures in treatment centers, identify changes in demand for treatment and consumption profiles identified by institutions and, finally, systematize the main measures taken by institutions to address this context.

The study was carried out with a multicenter project. The multicenter model will be supported by each of the national chapters of the International Society of Substance Use Professionals (ISSUP) in Latin America (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador and Mexico)

The selection of treatment centers was made by means of the snowball technique within each chapter, with the questionnaire answering a total of 52 Treatment Centers.
