Addiction medicine consultations provide outpatient care for alcohol and tobacco use disorders. Private consultations include diagnosis, guidance and follow-up. As part of this follow-up, the team may offer to participate to energetic resonance by cutaneous stimulation (ERCS) sessions and the smoking cessation support group.

Addiction medicine and hepatology hospitalisation unit A2

​These are 14-day stays for complex withdrawal from all types of addiction. Care can take two forms: group (art therapy, sophrology, physiotherapy, psychomotricity, assertiveness training, cooking, medical information) and individual (psychotherapy, psychiatric and neuropsychological somatic assessments, ERCS, hypnoanalgesia).

Addiction medicine day hospital

It is an outpatient program using both group and individual therapy; in parallel with classic addiction therapy, it provides psychotherapeutic care. These therapies allow for elaboration and exchange (writing group, group on emotions, art therapy group), an exploration of the psycho-body and emotional spheres (psychomotricity and sophrology).
