Soccer without drugs Cup EuroTC supports the revival!
We welcome every drug rehabilitation institution and every sporting association!
Soccer without drugs Cup, established 1989, revival 2020 / 2021 (swdc / FODC)
the site www.swdc.eu still exists. It contains our history how we played many soccer tournaments since 1989. Many TCs participated during those years and the events are still in our minds; how we gathered, how each TC prepared the tournaments and meetings (including amounts of financial investments). We remember the many football games, the alumni meetings. Every participant was overwhelmed by the hospitality we received at each location. Almost all young participants were abroad for the first time and got to know the culture of the host country. (From Almonte, Spain, to Lviv, Ukraine, from Tessaloniki, Greece, to Bremen, Germany.)
What a good European idea, what a good EU project that embodies the basic ideas of a free and open Europe!
In 1989 the sport idea was brought to life starting in Berlin. The idea was immediately taken up by other TC, so that an international sporting event was held every year. The swdc / FODC is part of the history of EU therapy facilities. It represents the good development of the rehabilitation of addicted people in Europe. Dear Friends: you can still watch this wonderful story of the swdc / FODC on the Internet for some time. Our request is that we save and revive this wonderful idea. What are Your ideas to revitalize the swdc / FODC idea?
We would like to bring together your ideas on how we can revive this event and develop a proposal.
We will care for Your ideas and come back to You as soon as possible.

Exchange of best practice guaranteeing health, safety and stability
The health of clients and the health of employees are paramount. In the TC, it is essential to follow the restrictions. This is a very dynamic demand when we consider the psychological burdens of the clients and their willingness to cooperate:
– How does management ensure security witin the TC?
– How can structural hygiene conditions be produced?
– Can the quality and basic principles of treatment be protected throughout the restrictions? – Can the fundamental right of treatment for addicts be further provided and ensured in this difficult period?

Challenges tackling the crises: Financing the extra costs and protecting staff from Burn Out
Enormous financing challenges are arising from the Corona crisis: facilities have to tackle limited admission or strict admission regulations. Very clearly the number of clients in treatment is going down while the requirement for treatment, addiction and mental health problems are increasing. Staff is confronted with situation of rising responsibility in this situation of general insecurity. What can facilities do to protect staff and to protect the facility from financial breakdown. Is there also a motivational impact of the crisis leading back to realize basic values, reconsidering the original strength and dynamic aspects of the TC?
