Young people educated on dangers of drug and alcohol addiction


PROYECTO HOMBRE Murcia presented its 2016 report on activities in the Region of Murcia on Monday, revealing approximately half of its users have a problem related to alcohol, either exclusively or alongside a problem related to drugs.

The event was attended by Murcia Mayor – Jose Ballesta, the Project Director of Proyecto Hombre Murcia – Asuncion Santos de Pascual, the President of Patronato Fundacion Solidaridad y Reinsercion – Tomas Zamora Ros and the General Director of Health and Addictions – Jose Carlos Vicente Lopez.

Proyecto Hombre Murcia reports to have helped 1,539 users through its various treatment programmes in 2016 and educated over 5,600 young people of the dangers of addiction, be it alcohol, drugs or tobacco through its work with schools and organisations.

The organisation was founded in 1995 in response to the rising number of addictions in the Region of Murcia.

Since then, it has expanded its offering of programmes to respond to the different demands of society.

Proyecto Hombre Murcia now offers six treatment programmes, three prevention programs and a family support programme.
