The San Patrignano recovery community is a home for youth who have lost their way. It is a family that helps them find a life made up of self-esteem, dignity, responsibility and enthusiasm.
Since 1978 it has been and continues to be unique and the best at the European level, focusing on it's residents and helping them learn a trade that can be applied, and assisted from external support through online donations.
The San Patrignano community is alive with the help and support of those who have already had similar life experiences—those who understand the difficulties, hardships and exclusions. The community reconstructs the identity of people by strengthening the values of honesty, commitment, respect for themselves and for others, solidarity and interpersonal skills.
The community of recovery from drug dependency is also a commitment to a better society through various prevention projects: specific activities in schools and international events battling addiction.
