Proyecto Hombre attended last year to 18,788 people with addiction to alcohol and other drugs, of which 1,898 were adolescents included in specific programs and, in addition, another 493 young people with judicial measures received support.
These are data from the 2017 Annual Report, which states that men represent 83% (15,633) of the people served in the 27 centers represented by the association.
Proyecto Hombre also has outpatient programs to treat addiction to alcohol, cocaine and pathological gambling, which were attended by a total of 3,882 people in 2017, the entity said in a statement.
The Report collects data for the first time on the problematic use of information and communication technologies (ICT): the people served account for 0.3% of the total.
In addition, the association has a wide presence in school, family and community prevention, developing training actions with which last year 83,041 people were reached, including adolescents, teachers and families.
In addition, 41 penitentiary centers have programs, which served 2,462 people. Of these, 20% underwent treatment in an intra-hospital therapeutic community.
Another 394 people carried out alternative penalties in Proyecto Hombre centers, thus preventing their entry into prison and initiating or continuing rehabilitation processes for their total reintegration into society.
In addition, 2,093 citizens benefited from the Insola Project (Socio-Labor Insertion), financed by the European Social Fund and launched in 2016, which provides training to users to improve their employability.
All this work is possible thanks to the 2,403 volunteers who lent their support in a disinterested way to the 1,120 workers of the centers and the association.
