FOCTALI promotes innovative approaches for the effective socio-occupational integration of justice-involved individuals with substance use disorders, presenting opportunities for the development of programs that are culturally, age and gender sensitive. This program supports the exchange of good practices, and facilitates knowledge-sharing and international cooperation on social integration among member states and the San Patrignano Therapeutic Community, a key expert in the area from Italy.

FOCTALI offers examples of educational opportunities and trainings tailored to strengthening life skills and employability of people involved in social integration programs. In particular, the development of individualized plans centered on the participants of programs, seeks to enhance both their employability and resilience as a way of ensuring their effective recovery and social integration.

FOCTALI also supports the inclusion of a monitoring and evaluation component in social-occupational programs and provides training and assistance in the design of indicators and data collection mechanisms in socio-occupational integration programs.
