Best Rehabilitation Centre in Delhi

Why Need for Rehabilitation Centre

Sahyog Detox and De addiction Clinic is the Best Nasha Mukti Kendra or Rehabilitation Center in Delhi.

HOW CAN A REHABILITATION CENTER OR NASHA MUKTI KENDRA HELP YOU?

If you suffer from the disease of alcoholism or addiction you need help. You are not going to recover from this disease on your own. The loved ones also cannot help you. A Rehabilitation Center or a Nasha Mukti Kendra is the only option left. While there are a lot of horror stories about Nasha Mukti Kendras but Sahyog Detox and De addiction Clinic is different. Firstly, it is run by a qualified M.B.B.S. doctor who himself was addicted to alcohol and drugs and has been clean and sober since 2002. Secondly, the food served is very good and you can eat as much as you want, there  are no ginti ki rotiyan. Thirdly, the patients are not required to do the menial chores like sweeping or swabbing or cleaning the toilets. Fourthly, and most importantly, the therapy at Sahyog Detox and De addiction Clinic is very good and we have an excellent success rate.

If you are addicted to alcohol or drugs you are going to experience withdrawal symptoms when you get admitted and do not get your daily dose or fix. We can help you detox, i.e., help you overcome the withdrawal symptoms by giving you medicines. But the treatment of addiction and alcoholism is not by medicines. For that we follow the Twelve Step Program.After the detox phase which lasts a week or ten days at the most, the treatment is through behavior or group therapy and one on one counselling. The Twelve Steps are the most successful modality to treat addiction or alcoholism.  The Rehabilitation Center or Nasha Mukti Kendra gives you a firm grounding in the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous.  Plus, the Nasha Mukti Kendra or Rehabilitation Center acts as a guarded environment, where there is no entry of alcohol or drugs.

The Nasha Mukti Kendra or Rehabilitation Center not only helps you stop alcohol or drugs it also helps you to stay stopped, which is more difficult.

Stages of Addiction

Phases of Addiction – Chronic Phase

This phase of Addiction is characterized by noticeable physical, mental and social deterioration. There is a marked breakdown in relationship with family.

ETHICAL BREAKDOWN

The person starts telling lies to cover up his or her addiction and regarding money and time spent outside. They start borrowing money from near and dear ones and acquaintances. When borrowing also does not suffice they may even resort to stealing money. They will go to any extent and do not hesitate to break values or degrade themselves to get their quota of drinks or drugs.

PARANOIA AND HALLUCINATIONS

The person may start suspecting their spouse of infidelity without any basis. They may be afraid that others are plotting against them. They might experience hallucinations – see or hear things which are not present. The hallucinations can be visual, auditory or tactile. This marks a very serious stage of alcoholism and can lead to delirium tremens and even death. This usually occurs when the alcoholic stops drinking alcohol for a few days.

LACK OF MOTOR CO-ORDINATION

The person is not able to do simple things like even holding a cup of tea or a glass of water without spilling it. Routine tasks like shaving become impossible till the person steadies himself with a few drinks of alcohol. This is the stage when a vicious cycle sets in. The person uses alcohol or drugs to become ‘normal’. When he or she does not drink alcohol or use drugs he or she experiences withdrawals.

THE ONLY SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM IS TO STOP TAKING ALCOHOL AND DRUGS TOTALLY.

Phases of Addiction – Early Phase

In the disease of Addiction, there are three distinct phases. Each phase has its own signs and symptoms.

EARLY PHASE

Increased Tolerance

This is the first warning sign of the development of dependence. Higher amounts are needed to produce the same effect which was produced in the beginning by lesser amounts. The effect that two pegs of alcohol produced earlier is not experienced and larger quantity is needed to produce the same high. Similarly, to get the effect which a joint produced initially two or three joints are needed.

Blackouts

Blackout does not mean that the person becomes unconscious, it is not that he or she falls flat. The person is able to go through all the activities but he or she is not able to remember anything at all. The person is able to walk, talk or even drive a vehicle ‘apparently normally’, but has no recollection of it afterwards. This is primarily seen in alcohol addiction.

Pre-occupation with Drugs and Alcohol

Even when the person is not taking alcohol or drugs he or she is always pre-occupied with the thoughts of how, when and where to get the next drink or fix. The person keeps on thinking why won’t the day pass soon, so that he or she can have his or her drinks. When will the guests leave so that he can have a joint in peace.

Avoiding any talk about Alcohol or Drugs

This is because of the associated guilt feeling. Even if somebody else bring up the topic of alcohol or drugs the person conveniently avoids the topic. They do not want to talk about, read anything that has any reference to alcohol or drugs.

Drug Addicts

Alcohol and Drug Dependence

WHO CAN BE CALLED ALCOHOL OR DRUG DEPENDENT?

A dependent is one who continues to use alcohol or drugs despite receiving negative consequences. A person who has problems in any area of his life, e.g., family, relationships, job, health or financial etc, and continues to drink alcohol or use drugs despite them.
Initially, alcohol and drugs give pleasure. Problems arise but the person is unaware that alcohol and drugs are causing the problems. He or she mistakenly believes that if the problems disappear he or she will stop drinking alcohol or using drugs. The dependence on alcohol or drugs prevents the person from seeing the problems.

WHAT IS THIS DEPENDENCE?

The person develops physical and psychological dependence on alcohol and drugs. The body gets so used to the presence of alcohol or drugs over a period of time the when he or she suddenly stops taking it he or she experiences withdrawal symptoms, which range from tremors, sleep disturbances and nervousness to cramps, disorientation and hallucinations. Alcohol and drugs become central to thoughts, feelings and activities and the person is unable to think of anything else. The person is constantly thinking and struggling with thoughts of how, when and where to get their next drink or fix.

ADDICTION LEADS TO ASSOCIATED PROBLEMS

It has been well established that addiction to alcohol and drugs leads to physical, emotional, interpersonal and financial problems. These associated problems can be solved only if the addiction is addressed first.

ADDICTION IS A PROGRESSIVE DISEASE

Unless the person abstains totally from all mood altering substances the condition will deteriorate progressively. The person has to make a decision to stop taking alcohol and other drugs and seek help and support for moving from dependence to independence.

ADDICTION IS INCURABLE BUT TREATABLE

Addiction to alcohol or drugs can be treated. In the process of treatment the addict or alcoholic will receive medical help, which will enable him or her to stop taking alcohol or drugs without experiencing severe withdrawal symptoms. The withdrawal symptoms are made less painful and less unpleasant. After this, the person is given psychological therapy. which will help the person lead a comfortable life without feeling the need for alcohol or drugs.

Addiction - Treatable Condition

Addiction – A Treatable Condition

Addiction to drugs or alcohol is a treatable condition like any disease but most people think it is a lack of will power or they think that the person is morally weak.

Let me share my experience on giant wheel where I had gone with my friends to enjoy in a fair. At first, as the giant wheel was about to start there was a sense of anticipation and excitement. Then it started and the experience was very thrilling. It went up and down. As the speed increased my excitement began to wear off and I started to feel scared. I looked at my friends and they were still enjoying it. I held on tightly and prayed for it to stop but it went on and on and I started to feel nauseous but my friends were laughing and enjoying themselves. I held on tightly and started to panic. I was afraid that it would crash and that I would die. I realized that shouting will not help and wished I had never gotten on this ride.

This is very similar to our experience with drugs and alcohol. Many people continue to drink alcohol and use drugs and still enjoy themselves but some like me can’t and become addicted and start experiencing the harmful effects of addiction. What was fun and enjoyable in the beginning turned into sorrow and pain. How many times we wished we had not started at all.

De-Addiction Hospitals in Delhi

SAHYOG

Sahyog Detox and De addiction Clinic is a  rehabilitation center par excellence. It is the only rehabilitation center run by a doctor which follows the 12 Step program. You have recovering addicts running rehabs and doctors running detoxes but this combination of a doctor and a recovering addict is not available anywhere.

The therapy available in Sahyog is group therapy and behavior therapy. Besides that individual counselling is also imparted. The therapy is excellent as our success rate speaks for itself. Addiction is a disease with very low success rate but compared to other rehabilitation centers our success rate is much higher.

The food is really delicious. We have excellent cooks who have been with us since the beginning of Sahyog. The menu is simple, roti sabzi dal chawal but it is made very well and the patients can eat as much as they want, there is no restriction on amount. The breakfast varies and that is served in limited quantities. Sometimes there is bread and eggs, sometimes aloo ka parattha for breakfast. The rehab I went to used to serve limited number of rotis and many a time I had to go hungry and fill my stomach with water but at Sahyog mealtimes they keep asking you if you want more rotis.

There is greenery and flowers and open lawn, in fact the yoga session is conducted in the open in mornings.

All in all Sahyog is a happy place where patients can recover from the disease of alcoholism and addiction and substance abuse

ADDICTION

Addiction is not only about using drugs and alcohol, because addiction can be of anything. The definition of addiction which I like is impulsive, compulsive behavior leading to spiritual decay. There is no mention of substance abuse at all. By spiritual we mean relationships. A person has three relationships:- firstly with himself or herself, secondly with others and that includes people at home, friends, relatives and society at large and thirdly and most importantly with the God of your understanding. Any thing which causes my relationships to weaken can be called addiction. Be it a seemingly harmless activity like going for a morning walk. If a person is used to going for a morning walk daily how do we determine if it is a healthy habit or an addiction? If it is addiction there will be some unmanageability. If for example somebody at home has a fall and needs to be taken to a hospital and the person says that let me finish my morning walk first and then I will take you to the hospital then you can deduce that it is addiction and if the person misses his morning walk then we can assume that it is a healthy habit. We cannot limit addiction to substance abuse.

ASPECTS OF ADDICTION

Addiction is a multifaceted disease. It is a bio psycho and social disorder. Addiction can be of anything – drugs, alcohol, food, sex, money, gambling, anything. Every person has a void and if we try to fill that void with anything, that thing can become our addiction, because this void can only be filled by relationships:- your relationship with yourself, your relationship with others, which includes firstly your folks at home, friends and society at large and your relationship with the God of your understanding.

Life is about ups and downs and these ups and downs are not in our control. Addiction at its most basic level is trying to control these uncontrollable cycles of ups and downs. The addict does not like the way he or she is feeling and decided to feel differently. If he or she is sad they want to feel good and if they are feeling good they want to feel better.This is how the addiction cycle begins by acting out. In acting out the addict engages in addictive behaviors or obsessions by which his or her mood changes. Acting out is a way to shift ones feelings or mood. By acting out through thoughts or actual behavior, the addict learns to create feelings of being relaxed, excited or even fear, self  disgust, shame but the biggest illusion is of being in control.Life if stressful and acting out is a way to escape from the stresses of day to day living.

Addiction and the mood change experienced by the addict is a very seductive process. We can get temporary relief from objects and events but not nurturing, i.e. our void does not get filled. All of us have to deal with issues, frustrations and memories we want to avoid and we all use objects and events to avoid facing them but in addiction we lose control and get locked into emotional evading of life. Addiction always begins at the emotional level in a person.
