Trabajando en cárceles se puede observar una gran problemática de consumo. De inicio antes de la privacion de libertad y a edades muy tempranas, en la niñez o adolescencia.

Reunión de Equipo - ISSUP Argentina

Como miembros del capítulo de ISSUP Argentina, seguimos trabajando y nos reunimos periódicamente para generar actividades y contenidos que sean un aporte para la comunidad de ISSUP.

El contexto actual marcado por la pandemia de la COVID-19 nos ha obligado a buscar alternativas de trabajo y también nos ha comprometido a generar contenidos de utilidad colectiva como la investigación próxima a publicarse sobre el "Impacto de la pandemia en los centros de tratamiento de América Latina".

Hemos generado alianzas con diferentes instituciones como la Sociedad Argentina de Pediatría, la Asociación Argentina de Justicia Terapéutica, la  Federación de Organizaciones no gubernamentales de la Argentina para la Prevención y el Tratamiento del Abuso de Drogas (FONGA) y otros Organismos Gubernamentales y Académicos, con los que hemos armado diferentes actividades de formación. Por supuesto, una parte importante de nuestro trabajo son las actividades conjuntas y la cooperación estratégica con los otros capítulos de la Región.

También conformamos un foro de equipos técnicos que trabajan en instituciones penitenciarias, con el objetivo de difundir buenas prácticas e intercambiar experiencias y conocimientos. Actualmente participan más de 50 técnicos, que se reúnen mensualmente.

Por último nos encontramos finalizando la primer "Diplomatura en abordaje integral de los consumos problemáticos de drogas", con 49 inscriptos de 9 países de la América Latina, y con el aporte de reconocidos docentes de América y Europa.

De a poco vamos retomando algunas actividades presenciales y esperamos que este proceso sea con el mayor cuidado de la salud para todos y todas.
