Work integrated drug rehabilitation

Basta offers one-year, work integrated, drug rehabilitation.

Work integrated means that the biggest part of rehabilitation takes place at Basta’s work sites, through real work. Through working in the social enterprise a lost self-esteem is regained, you train your communication skills, you create a new identity, and you are also part of a community. The unique thing with Basta is that you have the possibility to stay at Basta after your rehabilitation and be part of running a social enterprise. Basta has today three premises for its work integrated drug rehabilitation: in Nykvarn outside Stockholm, and in Fristad and Norsesund on the west coast of Sweden. You can apply to Basta through the Swedish Social Services, or the Criminal Justice System.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
