The European School of Alcohology and Ecological Psychiatry is a Non-Governamental Association specialised in training professionists and voluntary people involved in the field of alcohol dependency.
The School was born with the proposal to provide basic training to those people who wished to operate voluntarily in the Clubs of Alcoholics in Treatment following the philosophy of the Social Ecological Approach.
The Ecological approach shows a very important preventive aspects: the aim is to make people aware of alcohol related problems through action of awareness raising not only about the specific individuals but also to their families . The purpose is to change the community and the health culture in the community.
In a society extremely permissive towards alcoholic beverages it appears that this type of program has a very positive influence.
