Chi Siamo

Accreditato come eccellenza dall'Assessorato alla Salute della Regione Marche, il Centro Recupero Dipendenze San Nicola è una punta di diamante per l’intera nazione. Divenuto famoso anche all'estero, vanta pazienti da Olanda, Inghilterra e Stati Uniti.
La struttura nasce nel 2012 da un’esperienza più che trentennale nel campo delle dipendenze della Clinica Villa Silvia di Senigallia, rinomato centro privato di eccellenza medica. Il Centro di Recupero si ispira alle strutture americane ed inglesi che si distinguono per una residenzialità breve. Il programma terapeutico rivolto ai dipendenti, così come quello rivolto alle famiglie, è basato sull'integrazione delle terapie internazionali con alte percentuali di successo.

Il nostro staff

L'equipe terapeutica del Centro Recupero Dipendenze San Nicola è multidisciplinare, altamente specializzata e molto affiatata. Comprende psichiatri, psicologi, psicoterapeuti, counsellors, educatori, infermieri ed insegnanti. Alcuni di loro hanno alle spalle una storia di dipendenza propria o familiare, che li aiuta a creare una relazione altamente empatica con chi sta affrontando le problematiche della malattia. I professionisti del team divengono quindi per i pazienti testimoni di una nuova vita senza dipendenza. Ogni membro dell’equipe ha un curriculum d'eccellenza e frequenta periodicamente corsi di aggiornamento a livello internazionale.
