NVO 4 Life has launched a new service for social protection “Service for protection and support to social inclusion of people dependent on drugs”. Within this program, people dependent on drugs who undergo a drug treatment program will be taught the basics of design and production of promotional material through theoretical lectures and practical training in order to enable them to independently produce materials (business cards, flayers, brochures…) on photocopy machine specially made for this purpose. 

The main motive for the establishment of this service is that people dependent on drugs will be faced with number of difficulties in employment, even after their recovery process. In this project, in addition to drug treatment program, people dependent on drugs will have theoretical lectures and practical training to become familiar with the basics of design and production of promotional material. They will be able to independently produce materials (business cards, flyers, brochures ...). The program will ensure that people dependent on drugs have a work placement, which will facilitate their reintegration in society.

The provision of these social protection services is part of broader project entitled “Reform of the social and child protection systems – improvement of the social inclusion IPA 2010” that is being conducted by the UNDP office in Montenegro, together with the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare of Montenegro, the Ministry of Education of Montenegro and UNICEF. The project is funded by the European Union through Delegation of European Union in Montenegro.
