Objective Action

A cultural center within a Therapeutic Community, creates the appropriate environment for networking between Therapeutic Program beneficiaries and the neighborhood, the people of art, various cultural and social groups.

At the same time, it becomes a nursery for young artists, enabling them to present their work, while approaching a sensitive social space. Through this co-exchange, prejudices and myths about drug-addicts are dispelled.

Through the voluntary and creative involvement of society, relationships are developed that promote prevention messages, raise public awareness for addiction, combat stigma and social exclusion, and support the process of social reintegration of ex drug users.

Places such as the Cultural Center of KETHEA DIAVASI are good practices of opening up to society, a creative call to young people with artistic concerns and a desire for participatory action, but also substantial social reintegration efforts and the removal of the stigma that accompanies addiction.
