The role that family plays in the development of an individual is important not only in the homelife contest where it can satisfy his need of belonging, but also because it promotes his growth. Incapacity of a young adult to carry out his own emotional self is at the basis of a lot of failures or deviant behaviours. The maturation of an inner system allows an individual to live his own emotional self being aware conscious of having relations also with others, promoting in this way the independence from the family. The authors describe the therapeutical work on a young drug-addict. The problem of an independence that has come out from the story of the subject has been considered in systemic terms. During the short period of admission in the psychiatric department, the authors made interventions of reframing on the nuclear family, creating some necessary input in order to change some stereotyped actions.
