Defining the ‘prison’
PIP gradually developed from the San Blas programme and started functioning independently in January 1998. This programme specifically caters for persons who are serving a prison sentence and have a drug abuse problem. Prisoners are granted leave to follow New Hope’s approved rehabilitation programme out of prison. Female prisoners can choose to follow the programme at Et Iris, as PIP caters for males only.
Clients at PIP follow the programme in homely surroundings at the Caritas Malta facility in Baħar iċ-Cagħaq
