Primary Care (De-Addiction)
Shortly after admission, a general health assessment is conducted and thereafter the detoxification process is initiated. After the patient’s physical condition has stabilized, the patient is moved to Primary Care where through various mediums of the programme he is made to understand the multi faceted aspects of his illness; his powerlessness over the use of his substance of choice and his unmanageability, if he continues to use. He learns the importance of surrender to a Higher Power in order that he may start to take the first step in his recovery.
Because chemical dependency affects all areas of a person’s life, each patient’s social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual and physical condition is carefully evaluated with special attention to the consequences of alcohol and other drug abuse. The patient has to journalise intensively which is appraised in the counselor’s initial interview and assessment.
Secondary Care (Rehabilitation)
While the length of stay for patients varies, the average stay is for 4 months. The treatment itself is an absorbing, intensive experience. Patients have to strictly adhere to the daily schedule, which gives them a conscious awareness of time zones and time management. The 24 hours is divided into work / study periods , leisure / exercise, life fulfilling activities . Daily group therapy helps patients better understand themselves and their disease, through a process of listening to sharing of similar experiences by their fellow alcoholics / addicts in treatment. By sharing personal experiences, patients learn, often for the first time, to release stress and in turn begin to trust and seek help from friends and loved ones. Group sessions on grief, the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotic Anonymous and other topics help patients recognize personal barriers in their recovery. The programme provides the individual with tools to overcome bottlenecks that they are faced with. The program is in English and Hindi
Clients in need of a longer treatment programme are recommended to Extended Care by their personal counselors, which could be extended to a period between six months to a year. This offers a person a complete year long space to restructure his / her entire lifestyle.
Recovery And The Family
Care for the family is an important component of our rehabilitation services. The disease of chemical dependency is known to be a family disease and directly or indirectly affects the lives of so many people.
When your child, spouse, or loved one is struggling with addiction, it can overwhelm your family’s strength and hope. Friends and family members of alcoholics and addicts often feel confused, frustrated, angry and helpless.
We educate family members what they can do to take care of themselves. They learn that they can't control addiction, they didn't cause addiction, and they can't cure addiction. Participants identify new, healthy ways of coping with the addiction of a loved one whether that person is in recovery or actively using alcohol and drugs. Through discussions, and personal reflection, family members learn new ways to cope with addiction and relationships. Rama offers a family service programme in Hindi and English.
