Short description:
AMOC, founded in 1978, offers care in the Netherlands to foreigners with drug problems. Roughly half of our clients are long-term (intravenous) hard-drug users, many of whom are HIV-positive. The others are experimenting drug-users (usually with psychiatric disturbances as a consequence of drug-use), or prostitutes (m/f). Many are not insured in the Netherlands. One third of them are women. We offer daytime shelter, including the possibility of using drugs in a protected environment, and psychosocial counselling, with the aim of limiting drug-related nuisance, preventing neglect and preparing for and arranging a return to the country of origin.
AMOC is financed by the City of Amsterdam and the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs
