Welcome to the Self-Help Promotion Program

If you feel that you have a problem with drug use, alcohol, gambling, internet applications, etc. we may be able to help.

If a relative or friend is experiencing an addiction problem and you would like to seek help or just talk about it, contact us.

Self-Help Promotion Programmes support people who are experiencing addiction problems as well as members of their family and friends.

Our programmes are ‘open’ (externally monitored), ‘dry’ (we do not administer substitutes) and are aimed at adults. The services we offer are free, respectful of confidentiality and our response is prompt, as there are no waiting lists.

Our intervention is personalised, meaning that we formulate your plan together to meet your needs and the phase of your life at the time.

In our programmes you will meet experienced and trained professionals, including former substance abusers.

It doesn’t matter what substance you use, how often or how you use it.
It doesn’t matter what gambling you do or what internet applications you use.
If you feel like you need a hand, perhaps we can help.

The prevention of drugs and other psychosocial problems is love, compassion, humanity, solidarity, friendship and the retreat of personal and individual interests before the collective well-being.

About us

Self-help Promotion Program’s work based on the most up – to – date critical approaches in the field of Psychology and Addiction. According to these approaches, we give emphasis on social, political and cultural aspects of etiology of addiction. All the implemented interventions are tailored to members’ needs.

In addition, self-help/mutual aid philosophy and the active participation of members are some of the main features or our work.

Self-help/mutual aid refers to citizens’ taking action to assist one another in order to deal with their own life situation, within a context of solidarity and mutuality. Some of the key features of self-help/mutual aid is self – motivation, active attitude on health issues and taking responsibility.
