A proven methodology

Our interventions are grounded in science-based methodologies and developed under a biopsychosocial perspective

A committed team

Our multidisciplinary teams combine professionalism and social commitment

Therapeutic alliance

Each person actively participates in their own therapeutic project and that of others. This partcipation is driven by the therapeutic alliance, i.e. the bond of trust created between the therapist and the patient which is an essential element in the process of change.

Residential treatment services

Most Dianova members implement treatment programs in therapeutic communities (TC) a form of long-term residential treatment that utilizes various stages of treatment, reflecting higher levels of personal and social responsibility among participants. Peer support, mediated through a variety of group processes, is used to help individuals learn and assimilate social norms and develop more effective social skills. TCs use a recovery-oriented approach focusing on the whole person and overall lifestyle changes, not just abstinence from drug use.
