Treatment Center for Alcoholists
Founded in December 1994, the Alcoholic Shelter and Treatment Center (CATA) is the first health unit in Bahia dedicated exclusively to the care of people with problems related to alcohol abuse and dependence. Mainly maintained by SUS - Sistema Único de Saúde-, CATA is also the only one of its kind in the state working with a hospitalization system for alcoholics.
There are two forms of differentiated care: the Ambulatory and the Detox Unit, which works on short-term hospitalization. Considered a reference by the State government, the center develops series of activities that include psychotherapeutic, psychiatric, medical-clinic and group assistance. Always focused on humanized care, the unit seeks to offer patients a peaceful and familiar environment for their recovery.
