Staying at the community and the entire rehabilitation programme are provided completely free of charge for both residents and their families.
If you wish to be admitted to the rehabilitation community, you can proceed in one of the following three ways:
1. Through volunteer associations
These can be found all over Italy and are made up of groups of parents, volunteers and people who have experienced drug dependency and are now living drug-free. Their role is to catalyze requests for help and provide support for young people in their desire to change, helping them overcome addiction and suggesting the best way for their families to help. These associations also work in prisons, offering people jailed for drug-related crimes the opportunity to access information on alternatives to detention.
To find the association nearest you:
2. By contacting us directly
You can contact our Admissions Office and communicate with us directly by phone, both traditional and electronic mail or by filling in a special form.
In order to be even more accessible, we also use instant messaging systems such a Skype and MSN Messenger if you prefer. Whichever way you choose to contact us, it is important you continue to keep in touch with us to prove your real determination to follow a rehabilitation programme.

Once the real determination of the person concerned has been ascertained, one or more interviews will be organized by our Admissions Office team in which the rehabilitation methods, principles and programme will be illustrated.
At the end of the interview, the young person concerned can assess the proposal and freely decide whether or not the San Patrignano programme suits his or her needs. Acceptance leads to immediate admission to the community.
