Tsipras inaugurates therapeutic community for detained drug users
Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras inaugurated on Monday the independent therapeutic community KETHEA-Prometheus for detained drug users.
“It is a window of hope,” Tsipras underlined. He stressed that this therapeutic community constitutes a new approach to the prison policy, which is based on leniency and the ability to provide a second chance.
The Prime Minister announced that the next steps will involve the building of cooperation between Korydallos prison and the psychiatric clinic of Attikon hospital for the psychiatric treatment of prisoners and the creation of second-chance schools in three prisons.
