Skoun aims to help people with addiction problems claim their lives. We deliver the tools and information necessary to reduce the harm caused by drug use.Every year our treatment team helps hundreds of people overcome their addiction problems and rebuild their lives.
In 2013 alone, 407 people received free support from Skoun, people who were given a chance to rebuild their lives and their families. Over 3000 adolescents benefited from our prevention and awareness sessions in regions all across Lebanon.
Last but not least, Skoun is also committed to advocating for drug policy change, increasing public awareness and education regarding addiction and ensuring the basic human rights of people battling addiction in Lebanon are well preserved.
With your help Skoun aims to collect 2500 $ from the Beirut marathon crowd funding campaign.

Treatment: Skoun’s treatment departments provides therapy and counseling services to over 400 individuals a year, free of charge, to help them overcome their addiction problem and get back to leading healthy productive lives within their community
Prevention: knowing that experimentation with drugs starts during adolescence, Skoun’s prevention team reaches out to over 3000 young people yearly, implementing preventive and awareness programs in schools, universities and the communities from regions all across Lebanon.
Advocacy: Skoun works to make addiction a mainstream health care issue, and, as such, advocacy is integrated in every aspect of our work. We work closely with local communities and governments to devise and implement effective policies, build coalitions among NGOs and stakeholders, create a network of advocates, and ensure the dissemination of research to educate the public and improve policies related to drug abuse and addiction.Please support and share !
