Addiction puts the released back behind bars.

Together we are introducing innovative methods of addiction treatment to Czech prisons.

Where we work

# How we do it?

We are setting up systemic support for the prison population at risk of addictions in the phase of preparation for release. Even intense professional care during the transition back into the company.

We want to improve the image of the prison addiction service and thereby strengthen social acceptance of the social worker profession in this area. Our goal is to present the issue of prison and addiction through the eyes of workers.
THE CASE MANAGEMENT METHOD brings together professionals from the fields of addiction solutions - for example, social workers, therapists, addictologists, health professionals, representatives of the Probation and Mediation Service and others.
