De-addiction and Rehabilitation


ALCOHOLISM

In our Rehabilitation centre we treat alcoholics with following symptoms-

  • Craving- A strong need, or urge, for consuming alcoholic drinks.
  • Physical dependence- Not being able to stop drinking.
  • Withdrawal symptom- Withdrawal symptoms, such as nausea, sweating, shakiness, and anxiety after stopping drinking.
  • Tolerance- The need to drink greater amounts of alcohol to get “high”.

For clinical and treatment purposes, we have developed formal diagnostic criteria for alcoholics.


Alcoholism is a disease. The craving that an alcoholic feels for alcohol can be as strong as the need for food or water. An alcoholic will continue to drink despite serious family, health, or legal problem. Like many other diseases, alcoholism is a chronic, meaning that it lasts a person’s lifetime, it usually follows a predictable course, and it has symptoms. The risk for developing alcoholism is influenced both by a person’s genes and by his lifestyle.


Alcoholism is a lifestyle disease. There are several rehabilitation centers for alcoholics in Delhi that only affluent patients can afford. People belonging to weaker section of society with alcohol problem can seldom afford to seek treatment. They avoid treatment for a variety of reasons. The main reason is their reluctance to accept the fact that they have a problem, they continue to drink and become chronic alcoholics. They obstain from their work, suffering financial loss as many of them are daily wage earners or minor entrepreneurs. Our social workers identify alcoholics, on the basis of information given by their relatives and friends. We interact with these alcoholics and provided counseling. It is very difficult to convinces an alcoholic that he has a serious problem and needs adequate treatment to overcome it.


Alcoholism can be treated. In our alcoholism treatment programmes we use both counseling and medications to help a person stop drinking. Most alcoholics need help to recover from their disease. With support and treatment, many people are able to stop drinking and rebuild their lives. During the year we have helped alcoholics to give up their pernicious habit and, rehabilitated and lead a normal life.


DRUG DE-ADDICTION


Drug addicts require psychosocial and medical care for rehabilitating them back into the normal course of life. We disseminate information on ill effects of drugs and make the addicts aware of this pernicious activity and its effect on their families and the society at large. We motivate them to build their capacity to fight this problem.


Through our programmes we involve the community and seek their participation in promoting collective efforts for necessary interventions. During the year under review we were able to make young people give up their drug addiction through our following activities.

  • Awareness building for keeping young people from drug abuse.
  • Identification of addicts in the first place so that we could help them.

COMPREHENSIVE TREATMENT PROCESS


We offer a comprehensive treatment process for men and women suffering from alcoholism and other drug dependencies. Although alcohol is the most misused drug in our society, many become addicted to other chemicals. The treatment focus is on helping the patient to take responsibility for his recovery and to learning to live a fulfilling and comfortable life without the use of any addictive mood altering drugs.


We involve the immediate family as closely as possible in the therapy and educational and aftercare programme. Considerable damage is usually occurred to the spouse, parents and children as a result of the chemical dependency and the family’s early involvement in the recovery process is important. In addition employers and supervisors are encouraged to participate in the educational progamme and aftercare planning.


After an addict is admitted to our Rehabilitation centre, we assess the physical and mental condition of the patient and carry out a full examination and, if necessary, commence detoxification therapy.


INVOLVING PEOPLE CLOSE TO ADDICTS.


Chemical dependency affects all involved with the addicted patient-spouses, children, colleagues and employers. The spouse and the employer, wherever possible, are encouraged to involve and participate in the treatment and aftercare planning.


The effect of drug addiction of the patient on the family can be devasting in significant resulting in significant harms to the emotional stability of all family members. We hold therapy sessions by arrangement with the patient’s therapist and focus on the recognition of feelings and emotions and how to express and cope with them. We sometime involve patient children in these sessions.


IMPORTANCE OF AFTERCARE


We emphasis the importance of aftercare and discharge planning throughout the whole of the patient’s treatment period especially in the light of changes that the patient and family identify for changing the patient’s lifestyle. We also provide support systems that are crucial to the ongoing recovery of the whole family unit.


OUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS


During the period under review we treated many addicts. Most of them came from socially disadvantaged and economically poor backgrounds. Their drug and excessive alcohol addictions not only affected their health but also on their profession and their ability to earn livable income. By rehabilitating these addicts, we were also able to provide solace to their families and friends.


Some of these addicts who take drugs by sharing syringe are prone to contact HIV. While providing medical care and carrying out medical examinations evidences of HIV was detected. We refereed these cases to organizations who work in the fields of HIV/AIDS.
