DORIAL – SAÚDE MENTAL manages Clínica da Quinta da Tapada. With approximately 6 hectares of green area in an urbanized rural area, Quinta da Tapada provides a pleasant and vast physical space to its users.

The acceptance and recognition of Quinta da Tapada by the inhabitants of Vila do Luso allow a good social integration of the users, who develop academic, recreational and sports activities in public and private institutions.

The Therapeutic Community is a feature adapted into an array of therapeutic responses in which the community dynamics distinguish it from other treatment approaches. Dorial operates with a multidisciplinary team under the supervision of the clinical director. The goal is to relearn how to live and to identify personal skills with the aim of a psychosocial reorganization that facilitates rewarding reintegration (Vicente, 2011). Thus, the Clinic aims to create spaces for reflection with a view to formulating the personal history of the individual so that a new direction can be given and required areas of change identified, while promoting autonomy and accountability as pillars of adult life in society; developing the ability to establish and maintain healthy relationships, breaking destructive patterns; fostering social skills that enable alternative trajectories to be found for a realistic life plan; envisioning social inclusion through the development and agreement of an Individual Reintegration Plan (Vicente, 2011).
