A withdrawal center through complete abstinence - Cenacle community

http://www.comunitacenacolo.it/index.asp?idlingua=2

Young men or women addicted to drugs who wish to enter are required to attend some preliminary meetings, during which they are made aware of the reality and the style of life of the Community, and where we verify their desire to change. This time is also spent in having the family take part in the action and in preparing the young person to enter the Community. After a few meetings, the young person is invited to spend some days in one of our Fraternities, and if he so desires, he is welcomed into the Community. There is no entry fee; each family freely contributes according to its capacity. We do not take in persons with psychological problems (schizophrenia, or serious mental disturbances): our experience during these years has taught us that we are not able to provide them the constant special medical aid that they need.
