CTS - Centro Trentino Solidarietà

The “Centro Trentino di Solidarietà” – CTS, was funded in 1984 and was dedicated exclusively with the problem of heroin addiction, opening a residential community.

During the following years, there was an evolution of the problem to new kinds of addiction and a significant increase of the phenomenon of alcoholism in local area; with those complex patients it was necessary to change and specialize the ways and means of intervention. There was then established a therapeutic project.

Since the year 2000, CTS also operates a hosting house for people with AIDS (“Casa Lamar”). This structure provides assistance to guests throughout the day, offering a friendly safe and organized environment, a healthy food and comfortable accommodation and the opportunity for healing and growth from a human, cultural and spiritual point of view. Casa Lamar is located in Via Alto Adige n. 20, Trento, and there are currently 9 people using these services.
