Field programs are easy-to-access services for users of addictive substances and those in dire situations. Within our field programs we also help people in their natural settings. Services are safe and anonymous. Amidst all that we protect the public by picking up used syringes at local areas and testing people for infections and diseases.
Field programs are often the first service with which addicts tend to come in contact. They arrive at the idea that informing the user we can avoid many complications associated with substance use. We provide field programs in the Středočeský kraj:
Clients are given the choice of syringe exchange, crisis intervention, social/law-based advice, accompaniment to the doctor, information about risks of substance use and possible healthcare or professional contacts.
Furthermore we take care of used syringes and map the drugs scene in a designated area.
Our field program services are primarily for injection-based addicts, but also for other users of illegal and addictive substances (including THC), without regard to frequency or duration of use.
Moreover our services are made for clients addicted to alcohol,or gambling or those in dire psychosocial situations like being homeless.
Create and keep in contact with addicts and influence their motivation to change their risky behaviour and lifestyle.
Divorce, being fired, death of a loved one, domestic violence, difficult childhood. Life situations anyone can experience. Those factors often lead up to addiction. In many cases addicts need help from others. This means that they require support from organizations like Magdaléna, o.p.s.
To run our organization we need financial support from donors. The annual maintenance costs us tens of millions of CZK. Your support will help us bring 7 out of 10 clients back into society and educate youth, so that they can avoid addiction.
