The spanish Foundation for the Analysis, Study and Prevention of Addictions (AEPA) was the latest institution to join a Bicis para la Vida by ŠKODA project that is gradually returning to normal after the whole period of confinement and setting up new deliveries of material.
On this occasion the donation of bicycles took place on land in Alicante. The day centres of the AEPA Foundation in the towns of Alcoy and Alicante were the recipients of an expedition of 22 bicycles which were delivered during this Friday by Ángel López, responsible for the logistics of the project.
The AEPA Foundation works to prevent and eradicate all types of additions and addictive behaviour from our society and has various programmes to stimulate and promote the social reintegration of all patients who struggle to overcome a drug dependency or addictive disorder, as well as having a team of professionals for psychological, training and occupational support.
Twelve of the bicycles were delivered to the Alcoy centre, while the remaining ten units travelled to Alicante city. This material will allow the monitors to reinforce their healthy leisure or abstinence maintenance programmes, among others.
Created in 1997 with a scope of action that is geographically centred on the Valencian Community, AEPA currently has four day centres in the Levantine region, three of which are in the province of Alicante (those mentioned in Alcoy and Alicante, and another in Denia) and one in Valencia (in the town of Alzira).
