Extending the home

Lunchtime at San Patrignano. San Patrignano is the largest drug rehabilitation community in the world. It welcomes men and women with drug abuse problems completely free of charge. The community was set up in 1978, when the founder, Vincenzo Muccioli, invited addicts into his home. Since then, San Patrignano has given tens of thousands of men and women a home, a job, training and skills and the social relationships that are so important in overcoming addiction.
