In their report EMCDDA (European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction) writes, that Estonia has a great proportion of self-injecting addicts and 40% of them are young people. In their annual report , there are 1-5 self-injecting addicts to every 1000 people in European Union countries. In Estonia, this number is especially high: even 15 self-injecting drug addicts to 1000 people in age of 15-64.
Among young people (up to age 25) the percentage in self-injecting drug addicts is 40%. Only In Romania, Latvia, Czech Republic and Austria have that high of a percentage.
In their annual report they said that 2007 was the year with the highest number of people with AIDS among the self-injecting addicts. Amoung EU countries Estonia, Latvia and Portugal are high in new HIV-positive growing numbers.
These statistics and numbers are very high and the sad truth is, that the recovery of addictions is not successful in most cases. Is there a way out? Is it possible to overcome the addictions of narcotics and alcohol?
In last few years our Center has proved it's effectivness. You can be convinced of it as you read the testimonies of the people who were able to change their destiny.
