Helena Cabeçadas helcabecadas@hotmail.com Addictions HC to CF 4.3.2006 email: About TCs in Portugal: In fact, I am a pioneer in this field; I created in

Lisbon in 1977, with some colleagues, the first TC for addiction in Portugal. This TC is always working, models have changed through time, but it is a reference for all TCs in our country. I wrote a thesis about it, in 1994, for the Universidade Nova de Lisboa: "Rituais Terapêuticos e Toxicodependência: uma abordagem antropológica" (Therapeutic Rituals and Drug Addiction: an Anthropological Approach"), and I wrote some articles on this subject, in Portuguese and also in English: - "Pós-modernidade e desordem: a toxicodependência como sintoma" (1996), in "Trabalhos de Antropologia e Etnologia", Vol. XXXVI, Rev da Sociedade Portuguesa de Antropologia e Etnologia; - "Therapeutic Rituals and Drug Addiction: an anthropological Approach",in ÍTACA, Magazine of the European Society of Professionals Working with Drug Dependencies. Nov. 1999, vol. III, nº3. - "Power and Ritual Dimension in Therapeutic Communities. Elements for a qualitative evaluation". , in ÍTACA, vol.V, n.º1, June 2000. - "Therapeutic Systems: a cross-cultural and comparative analysis". in ÍTACA, vol. VI,nº1, March 2001.

I can send you a copy of some of these articles, if you think it would be interesting, or may be you have The ´ÍTACA Review in your Archives. I would like to help you about the chapter on Portugal, because I have been quite envolved in TCs, as a therapist and a researcher; it's always a quite interesting subject for me, even if I am now more envolved with other issues. The problem is that my English is not correct, (it's my 3.rd language. french is my second language), and I am quite busy for the moment. Nevertheless, it depends on what you really want, and when you need it ready. In fact, the history of CT'S in Portugal is quite familiar to me, and I wrote about it already (not in English); concerning the present situation, it woul be necessary to get better informed, and I need some time for that. Best regards Helena Cabeçadas
