The development of existence inevitably leads to compensatory systems regarding suffering: it is necessary to enter into this perspective to realize how a potentially destructive activity can penetrate the custom of behavior.


Drug addiction is described by certain criteria in the section of the “Substance-related Disorders” of DSM-5 (the text that collects the symptoms of various psychopathologies).

Drug addiction is defined as a distinct “pathological mode of intake” by certain characteristics present in the one-year time period; they can be summarised indicatively in the loss of control of the subject compared to the initial period of consumption, the impairment of the conduct of life, the loss of individual and social control in relation to the need to assume the substance to which the remainder of personal activities are subordinated, neglect in its different degrees and modalities with respect to the usual fulfillments, serious disorders due to the phenomenon of tolerance and discomfort related to abstinence.


Substance addiction leads to discomforts of different nature and severity depending on the substance in question, up to absolutely relevant and mental physical conditions of deep destructuring.

The psychic difficulties due to the continuous use of psychotropic substances is related not only to the lack of perceived well-being, which soon in time subsides, but also or especially to the need to claim a disconnection with reality surrounding a subject unable to cope. These are potentially conditions of extreme isolation, never fully perceived, to which the individual refers in order to escape from conditions that as a whole are perceived as unsustainable.

To be right about the inexplicableness of the gesture that entails any addiction, it is necessary first to realize the suffering so intimate that it is hidden and not seen by the same subject who suffers from it. I mean, there is no individual who is abducted by substance abuse who does not have a psychic suffering to forget about an absolutely relevant entity that has not been addressed except to eclipse its presence.

Now, it is absolutely necessary to realize that precisely this suffering manages to be so hidden as to deny the sight of introspective insights carried out by the individual subject.

It is essential to remember that in this case as never only one man helps another man: it is unfeasible to observe oneself deep and there to identify pain and where its origin is placed, In what aspect of the environment begins its pervasive presence. It is clear that without this step it is very difficult to defeat the anguish that has led to the desire not to exist even for an hour in order to give way to its essential entity to escape from that awareness. It is not a memory as it can be understood ordinarily but rather an emotion that continues to live exactly as it was experienced while it was taken and elaborated in the past.

It is not something that can be forgotten in the strict sense, but rather it is denied its existence to oneself. Therefore, the psychotherapy of the Therapeutic Anevrotic Process is aimed at re-emerging the origin of that state of mind and in it to break down the unconscious fear that remained alive and powerful in that mind.


The Therapeutic Anevrotic Process (PAT) is aimed at psychotherapy of drug addiction, as well as other forms of discomfort, in combination with the principals in routine use. It is a rebalancing procedure that tends to the psychic restructuring of the subject, indispensable in order to recompose the structure of the subject. The results of the trial and clinical activity carried out on this and other psychopathologies, propose an innovative therapeutic perspective, aimed at the remission of the typical symptoms of substance abuse discomfort.

Basically, psychotherapy with the therapeutic anevrotic process is aimed at any discomfort originating from a previous affective condition. Therapeutic Treatment tends to restore the broken plot in a past experienced with deficiencies as invisible as today seem devastating effects.

Just as it has been theorized, the TAP aims to restore the emotional condition of the subject. This is accomplished with intense work in the same therapist and promoted in the patient. Particularly important is the fact that the Anevrotic Process can be used jointly in any therapeutic variable and in combination with the biochemical pharmacological aspect. This allows its use at large spectrum, using in a synergistic way all the healing skills present at the present time.
