We have been to the San Patrignano community in Italy and have been inspired to set up a recovery community that supports people to live their lives free from drugs and alcohol in Scotland. IF will be based on the same principles of abstinence, trust, mutual support, social enterprise, respect for life, and responsibility. The community is peer-led, one addict in recovery helping another addict to get into long-term recovery. The community is free to access, with no fees paid by the person in recovery, their families and the state. The community earns money through its social enterprise activities and charitable donations. Residents are guests and they learn life skills and a variety of trades that will help to support them when they return home.
