Adoc is the national association for consumers' defence and guidance. We are specialised in supporting consumers in pursuing the respect of their rights as savers, users, taxpayers, and as the main stakeholders in healthcare system. Founded in 1988, it has now 65.000 members. Adoc now covers all the Italian regions and every province.

In each Adoc centre Adoc lawyers give their assistance to consumers.
