Road To San Patrignano: Hope For The Addicted

Minutes Long: 

Paul Fusca is a Canadian drug addict who turned to a life of crime support his $800 a day addiction. Desperately unhappy after half a dozen failed rehab attempts, and near death after an overdose, Paul found his way to Italy and to a remarkable drug treatment facility known as the community of San Patrignano, a therapeutic village where every inhabitant – from the doctors to the guests are all addicts or recovering addicts. A centre which focuses on treating the soul, not the addiction. San Patrignano is Europe’s largest live-in drug treatment centre where addicts stay as long as they need to recover – and most stay between three and five years. Today Paul is living drug free at San Patrignano, his fourth year of recovery.
