Prison Inmates Programme (PIP)

Prison Inmates Programme

  • The Prison Inmates Programme (PIP) located in Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq, is a dedicated male rehabilitation initiative set in a residential environment, tailored specifically for inmates struggling with addiction issues during their prison sentence.  Established in January 1998 as an offshoot of the San Blas programme, PIP has since emerged as an independent and highly effective rehabilitation platform.

    At PIP, we recognize the intricate challenges faced by individuals combating addiction.  Our holistic approach combines individualized attention and group support within a structured rehabilitation framework.  Inmates participating in our programme are granted supervised prison leave, enabling them to engage with our New Hope-approved rehabilitation programme.  For female inmates seeking similar assistance, the option to enrol in the same programme is available at Et Iris Females’ Therapeutic Community.

    • Our mission is not just limited to the residents but extends to their families and significant others.  We firmly believe that the journey to recovery encompasses not only personal growth but also understanding and support from one's social circle.  Hence, we actively involve families, ensuring they receive the necessary guidance and encouragement.

      Underpinning our services is a team of dedicated professionals committed to equipping residents with essential tools for recovery. Following the guiding principles of the Caritas New Hope programmes, our approach is rooted in empathy, respect, and understanding.  We work diligently to instil hope, foster resilience, and empower individuals to overcome their addiction, fostering a brighter, substance-free future.  At PIP, we don't just rebuild lives; we restore hope.
