Entrepreneurs for the most vulnerable

People suffering from addictions

People with addiction issues suffer from an illness. We do not judge people’s behaviour and choices; our goal is to provide the best possible response to each person’s situation.

Our support is comprehensive and includes healthcare, housing, social and work integration as well as risk mitigation.

Addictions Advocacy

Let’s be clear: addiction is an illness. The French repressive system clouds this truth, and many people live in fear that their addiction will be discovered by their relatives or employers. They gradually fall into a spiral of exclusion, without proper treatment or support. In our Addictions Advocacy, we make practical proposals to bring about lasting change in the way people with addictions are cared for.
