The training program helps managers to improve the work of rehabilitation centers, to evaluate and meet the needs of addicted people. For managers of rehabilitation centers it is a possibility to learn how to build relations with different categories of addicted people, with various government agencies, with team workers, with churches, etc. It is also a possibility to increase the level of personal knowledge required to become a successful leader/manager of a rehabilitation center.
