DURATION of the rehabilitation process is 5/6 months on an average and it might take up to 12 months in certain cases. People with Drug/Alcohol induced psychiatric disorder who need psychiatric medication might require even longer. To your astonishment, on an average an alcoholic needs more time than a drug addict and the more detoriated state of a person; more are his chances to recover.

      The eight stages of a successful rehabilitation process are mentioned below:

  • Detoxification: Absolute bed rest and management of withdrawal syndrome under the supervision of Doctors.
  • Taming : Getting inmate acquainted to his peers, life style of therapeutic community and discipline.
  • Compulsive Behavior, Unmanageability, Crisis etc. from his own life.
  • Motivating : Explaining the gain and positive aspects of drug free life by counselors, based on his (counselor’s) own experience through subjective sharing.
  • Learning : Different aspects of Addiction/Alcoholism and Recovery are explained through various sessions (eight sessions per day).
  • Practicing : An inmate learns the practical implementation of the theories that he is learning through the sessions and counseling, in his life on a day to day basis.
  • Partial Freedom : An inmate gets exposed to the main stream of society as he is sent for marketing, 12 step Meetings, occasional visit to his home. During this phase he finds loopholes in his learning and practices.
  • Touch up : An inmate shares those loopholes with his counselor, who guides him to a solution.

NOTE: Disciplined Life, Prayer, Meditation, Self Help, Physical Activity, Recreation & Relaxation are a must during all stages of rehabilitation process (except Detoxification period).
