The Good Samaritan Centre, near Pozoblanco, Spain is a drug rehabilitation centre, established to help  people who are dealing with addictions.

The intention of the programme at the Centre is to prevent the abuse of drugs, to give advice and help to those dependent on drugs, to allow residents time to take part in therapeutic social activities and to facilitate their eventual reintegration in the society.

The Centre relies on help from many professionals, including a psychologist, a GP, social workers, agricultural workers, occupational therapists, administrative supervisors and volunteers, all of whom form the team that allows the centre to run effectively.

A Brief History

Set up in 1993, the Good Samaritan (Buen Samaritano) Centre was created to help those people suffering with drug dependency issues.
Staff at the centre work to facilitate the reintegration of the residents into everyday life. The current property was acquired in 1994; little by little the facilities have improved, offering a better service to the residents.
There are programmes of work, sport, culture, social interaction and spiritual therapy to encourage residents to take responsibility for their own actions and to be aware of the impact this has on others.
