Congress 60

Tehran, Iran


Mr. Hossein Dezhakam

Congress 60 is a Non-Governmental Organisation, established in November 1999 in Tehran, based on the treatment and care philosophy developed by its founder, Mr Hossein Dezhakam.
Mr Dezhakam established Congress 60 under the slogan of 'Lets curb this devastating flame' to work with a step-by-step travel through detoxification from drugs.
Congress 60 aims at helping people with a problem of drug addiction that are willing to withdraw their habit. The organisation works under the principles of love, wisdom, respect and faith and involves ex users and their families in the process of recovery and in helping other users along the treatment path. The triangle of care proposed by Congress 60 involves approaching the problem of addiction through three angles at the same time, that of the person's attitude, his body and his soul. Congress 60 strongly believes that it is the drug of abuse, which is the best medication for detoxification through a process of reduction in use while at the same time intensely working on attitude through its guidance system of involving former drug users as a guide, and body through sports.
