Oum el Nour was born 30 years ago, from our will to win a friend back from drugs.
It started as a grassroots initiative, but grew into a home for those who need sheltering, fostering and understanding.
A place away from noise, pressure and judgment. A place to recover, look back and learn, to reconnect with oneself, before reconnecting with others.
We continue today supported by the belief that saving one person from addiction can also mean saving a child, a parent, a sibling, a colleague or a fellow citizen. In other words, saving one of us.
We have two in-patient rehabilitation centers in two different locations. The first one is based in Sehayleh, dedicated to men with a capacity to accommodate 72 patients. The second one is based in Fatka, dedicated to women with a capacity to accommodate 36 patients.
Our addiction prevention programs and rehabilitation programs are offered free of charge regardless of socio- economics, ethnicity, gender, nationality or religion.
Oum el Nour is committed to serving individuals through helping them overcome their addiction, in order to attain a healthy society characterized by sustainable growth.
Oum el Nour aims at gradually decreasing the addiction rates in Lebanon and increasing awareness of the various factors leading to such, as drug addiction has become an extensive problem, with destructive causes and consequences for individuals, families, and society.
