WITH addictions, including drug and gambling addictions, rising in recent years, one established treatment centre in Finland has extended its live-saving services to the Costa del Sol.
Avominne opened its doors in Fuengirola in September 2021, offering its outpatient addiction programme at its centre to those in need on the Costa del Sol.
Working from the Smart Work Plaza in their Business and Co-Working facilities, Avominne is now offering care to both patients from Finland and those from anywhere in the world at its new facilities.
The Euro Weekly News spoke to Avominne supervisor Marja Kanu about the company´s work to tackle to issue of addiction on the Costa del Sol.
She told the EWN: “We have been around since 2005 in Finland and we provide services for people who suffer from different types of addictions.
“It´s not a clinic, but we offer counselling for all types of addiction, from prescription medication to gambling.
“There had been demand on the Costa del Sol from the Finnish community to have addiction services here and now we have decided to offer outpatient counselling and information.
“We will also be offering free lectures and talks on addiction to English speakers, and I can offer counselling in Finnish, English, Swedish and Norwegian.
“We hope to be able to help people, and their families too.
“This is a family disease. When one person in a family has an addiction it affects the people around them.”
Avominne is now offering a basic treatment period of three to five times a week. The treatment is learning-theoretical and completely drug-free and is now available on the Costa del Sol.
