THE ESSENTIAL IDEA

Oum El Nour was born in 1989, from our will to win a friend back from drugs. It aims at gradually decreasing the addiction rates in Lebanon and increasing awareness of the various factors leading to such, as substance abuse has become an extensive problem, with destructive causes and consequences for individuals, families, and society especially in the rough times.

Oum El Nour continue todays with the belief that saving one person from addiction can also mean saving a child, a parent, a sibling, a colleague, a fellow citizen.

Oum El Nour was born as an initiative, but grew into a home for those who need sheltering, fostering, understanding. A place away from noise, pressure, judgment. A place to recover, look back and learn, and to reconnect with oneself before reconnecting to others. 

Over the past years, Oum el Nour has accompanied nearly 9200 young men and women to sobriety and reintegration. As well spread awareness to nearly 2000 young men and women. The residential treatment program offered at the Rehabilitation Centers are based on the Therapeutic Community approach (TCs), that is, it has a recovery orientation, focusing on the whole person and overall lifestyle changes, not simply abstinence from drug use. Recovery is seen as a gradual, ongoing process of cognitive change through clinical interventions, and it is expected that it will take time for program participants to advance through the stages of treatment, setting personal objectives along the way.

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.

MISSION

Oum el Nour is committed to serving individuals through helping them overcome their substance use disorder, in order to attain a healthy society characterized by sustainable growth.

VISION

Oum el Nour aims at gradually decreasing the addiction rates in Lebanon and increasing awareness of the various factors leading to such, as substance abuse has become an extensive problem, with destructive causes and consequences for individuals, families, and society.
