Abstract:

<p>This article's objective is to share the clinical experience acquired through the activities of the Substance abuse Group established within the framework of the program destined to people suffering from a first psychosis at the Polyclinique Sainte-Anne, an external clinic of the Centre Hospitalier Robert-Giffard. Inspired by an american program specifically designed for people with schizophrenia and a problem of addiction, this psychoeducation and skills training program's goal is to help participants develop the motivation to reduce or cease their use, to recognize high risk situations and develop the skills to avoid relapse and reduce the ill effects of substance abuse.</p>
