The objective of this study was to identify the personal network characteristics of a group of individuals demobilized of the Colombian armed conflict. Ten men were evaluated using a descriptive cross-sectional design of a quantitative approach to the implementation of ASSIS identifying networks to measure six dimensions of social support. Personal networks were visualized with the program Visone 2.3.5 identifying that material assistance is the dimension of greater satisfaction in the sample program. Outstanding small networks, made up by relatives and with good level of personal privacy are also present.
