Visit to San Patrignano

Visit to San Patrignano

From July 17th to July 19 th , representatives of association Celebrate Recovery visited the community of San Patrignano in Italy. Together with members of the Association of Stijena from Zagreb and Restart from Novi Sad, Members of RUN, were informed about the work of one of the largest community related to drug problems in Europe.

Through interactive workshops there were provided an insight into the basic principles of work, explored opportunities for joint cooperation and visited the large number of production facilities and workshops of which San Patrignano is particularly proud. This kind of community shows more than a successful way of functioning and self-maintenance. We find out information about the current projects, with special emphasis on project WeFree with which we were informed in detail by the users of the program themselves.

The special significance of such visit is reflected in the exchange of experiences, ways of implementing similar projects and determining ways of dealing with the problem of addiction.

This visit was supported by the ECETT network.
