To estimate indicator changes of Social Intelligence (SI) of substance use disorders (SUD) patients before Minnesota program (MP), after MP treatment and six months later. Material and methods: The first measurement was done at the beginning of treatment in Minnesota program (MP), the second measurement was done, when program was finished. The third measurement was done 6 months after treatment. Selection of research was composed by 204 respondents with diagnosis of SUD (F10.2 – F19.2, ICD-10), average age 36,9 (SD = 11,1); 61.3% − male; 79.4% − alcoholics.

Scale of SI consists of 21 items, building 3 factors: Social information processing (SP), social skills (SS), social awareness (SA). Descriptive and ANOVA was used for data processing. Results and Conclusions. After data of descriptive statistic, SI indicators increase for MP patients in all 3 scales after treatment and 6 months later. In comparing SI results for MP patients both male and female, in all three measurements, descriptive and conclusive statistical data (Bonferroni test) show that statistically significant time effect (p ≤ 0.05) appears in the total SI for men, furthermore, the changes occurred between the 1st and 3rd measurements.
