Procedure for Detox in Sahyog Clinic
Sahyog Detox and De addiction Clinic is a rehabilitation center which works to help suffering addicts and alcoholics. We admit patients for a period of 4-5 months(average) but it can take longer also. We follow the 12 Step Program of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. Even medical textbooks say that the 12 Step Program offers the highest success rate in treatment of addiction and alcoholism. The success rate in treatment of alcoholism and addiction is very low to begin with. Sahyog Detox and De addiction Clinic has a much better success rate than most other facilities.The treatment at Sahyog Detox and De addiction Clinic is mainly through counselling, behavior therapy and group therapy. After the detoxification process is over the patients have to follow a proper routine. Wake up at 7, do yoga and meditation and after breakfast there are 5-6 sessions during the day. We start with a reading session where people read from the Big Book and other Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous literature. They also share their identification in the reading session. The reading session is followed by the writing session. In that they first write about themselves and later write about the 12 Steps till Step 5. Writing session is followed by the Input session which stands for information put forward. It is like a lecture and there are many diverse topics ranging from the Disease Concept to the 12 Steps. After Input there is a lunch break followed by rest time. In the afternoon patients have a session called Group Discussion. In that they relate the topic taught in Input to their own lives and talk about themselves. After that thrice a week they write their thoughts and feelings of the day in Inventory writing and share them aloud with the counsellor. In the evening they have a in-house Alcoholics Anonymous meeting followed by dinner, meditation and lights out at 11. This is how the day is structured and they follow this regimen from Monday to Saturday.
