Project called Support Center for Family Members with Addiction Problems on July 1st of 2013. This project represents the part of broader project (Social Welfare Child Care System Reform – Enhancing Social Inclusion IPA 2010) implemented by the UNDP Office in Montenegro in collaboration with the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare, the Ministry of Education and UNICEF. This project is funded by the EU Delegation to Montenegro. Our project is intended for families with addiction problems, including addicted people themselves as well as any family member suffering from drug abuse consequences. Our focus through this project is on children whose parents are drug abusers.
Also, we applied and received funds for the implementation of the project Alternative, supported by East-West Management Institute, under its Criminal Justice Civil Society Program (CJCSP), funded by U.S. Department of State/INL.The objective of this project is to train property crime inspectors to enhance their communication skills based on Motivational Interviewing method when they are faced with addicts who have committed a crime. If the inspector, at the time of arrest, take advantage of the moment, and motivate the drug addicted person to recognize and accept the treatment, we believe that this will have a significant impact on reducing the number of problems related to addiction, including the problem of the Justice System who deals with the same offender several times for the same or a similar crime.
We also launched the service of based-on-experience and professional counseling, individual and group sessions for drug/alcohol addicted, as well as support services for family members, including co-dependent persons.
