The program is aimed at people who use drugs. Participation in the program is free and voluntary.
Feel free to do so — many of the counsellors themselves are people who have used drugs in the past, and they are equipped to understand the situation you are in. The support person helps you to figure out what kind of support or help you may need, and find the appropriate service providers.
Starting to use drugs in a safer manner and getting one’s life back on track can be a long process, during the course of which a support person can help you solve various problems. Support persons of the SÜTIK program are working in Tallinn and Harju County, as well as in the Counties of Ida-Virumaa and Lääne-Virumaa; they welcome clients from all over Estonia. Although many sources of help are tied to being registered at a fixed address, we will also try to help those without a permanent address or whose actual place of residence differs from the registered one.
Support persons offer various kinds of assistance, including help with finding employment or a place to live, seeking health care services and making plans for the treatment of substance use disorders. Many support persons are also peer-to-peer counsellors. Many of them have been in situations similar to yours, and have personally travelled the path from addiction to recovery. Support persons won’t judge you, but will instead help you find suitable solutions.
The support service will be provided for at least one year, and the aim of the program is to improve self-sufficiency and reduce risk behaviours in people who use drugs.
