Short description:
The mission of the "Celebrate Recovery" is to create conditions that will help former addicts to engage in the community as productive members that with their positive example of living will witness that recovery is possible and motivate other addicts to seek help.
Our work is focused on three sections:
1. Reaching, motivation and referral of active drug users in rehabilitation centres. 2. Preventing the relapse and helping recovering drug addicts to become productive and responsible members of society.
3. Providing material and psychosocial support to families of addicts.
We organize an annual conference of former addicts which is attended by medical workers, representatives of relevant organizations and recovering addicts from all over the region.
We are selected by the European Commission to be a full member of Civil Society Forum on Drugs.
Together with five different European organizations, striving to give a voice to recovered drug users, we have established Recovered Users network – RUN.
