Csaba founded the Leo Amici Foundation in 1991 to change medical and social prejudices against drug addicts and alcoholics. He is creating a humane, safe, and creative environment for treatment which builds self-confidence and reinforces the assumption of personal responsibility. His private institution has become a model in Hungary for substance abuse rehabilitation.

People learn to live and grow by way of developing new and healthy ways of living together. Openly and honestly, recovering addicts share their experiences, strengths and hopes with one another. Those with chronic mental health problems may benefit from recovering addicts' experiences and ways of learning health understood as a community-based personal competence.
The aim of the learning process is care for ourselves, our fellows and the community.
