Our collective experiential learnings have led us to realize that drug de-addiction, alcohol de-addiction or psychological wellbeing can be achieved by building coping skills in individuals. This skills training is imparted at our rehabilitation centre in Pune by a team of expert counsellors and trainers. Psychiatrists at our rehabilitation centre use third-generation psychiatric medicines to support the quick rehabilitation of the participants. Our treatment program enables the participants to deal with life’s obstacles with vigour and a sense of purpose. We have subject matter experts who facilitate at our rehab centre by covering topics like stress management, anger management, conflict resolution and more. This training helps the participant develop meaningful relations, career growth, achieve educational targets, and become acceptable and contributing members of society. Each patient is different and so are their conditions, we create a tailor-made treatment programme depending on the patients needs and recovery speed.
The various therapeutic remedies we employ
BRAIN-BASED FRAMEWORK PROGRAM
This program is based on the work done by Dr Gabor Mate (https://drgabormate.com) an expert with over 20 years of experience working in Canada. Understanding and restructuring brain biology is essential for recovery. We use activities and tasks designed to regulate the endorphins, dopamine, impulse control and adrenaline mechanisms. The recovery rate at our center has gone up by almost 60% since we introduced this treatment modality.
It is a model of Arts in healing developed by WCCLF. We use different modalities like Art, Drama, Music and Dance to provide the participants with an opportunity to express themselves in a non-threatening way. Art-based therapy is used as part of Group Sessions and at times in individual sessions. We are getting great results in achieving therapy goals like impulse control, balanced self-image, emotion regulation, etc.
MINDFULNESS CAPACITY BUILDING
Using mindfulness-based activities has helped the participants bring their attention to the external and internal experiences in the present moment. This helps them develop a compassionate and non-judgmental attitude towards themselves and the people, places and situations in their environment. This greatly reduces stress, anxiety and anger and at the same time increases awareness and consequential thinking.
SOLUTION FOCUSED THERAPY
This goal-oriented therapy helps the participants shift their focus from problems to solutions. The main task is to identify the participant’s goals and generate a detailed description of how the participant’s life will be after achieving the goal. To know more about SFBT

Ms Neha Syed conducts this program at the centre focusing on group and individual needs with a tailor-made program to suit the needs of the participants.
Most participants come to us with underlying behaviour issues and the best way to deal with that is with Behaviour Modification Therapy. It is a simple technique in which you do positive reinforcement of the behaviour that you want the participant to have and do negative reinforcement for the behaviour that you don’t want in the participant.
COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talk therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave.
Active listening requires you to listen attentively to the client, understand what they're saying, respond and reflect on what's being said, and retain the information to better help the client.
Family counselling helps reintegrate the client back home healthily by helping the family break out of any unhealthy patterns of behaviour in regard to the client.
ACCEPTANCE AND COMMITMENT THERAPY
Acceptance and commitment therapy invites people to open up to unpleasant feelings, learn not to overreact to them, and not avoid situations where they are invoked. Its therapeutic effect aims to be a positive spiral where a greater understanding of one's emotions leads to a better insight into modifying harmful and destructive behavioural patterns.
Psychoeducation (PE) is defined as an intervention with systematic, structured, and didactic knowledge transfer for an illness and its treatment, integrating emotional and motivational aspects to enable patients to cope with the illness and to improve its treatment adherence and efficacy.
It describes the existence of more than one ailment or condition within your body at the same time. Co-morbidities are usually long-term, or chronic. They may or may not interact with each other. For example someone with a marijuana addiction may develop a co-morbid condition of psychosis and hence treatment will be required for both addiction as well as psychosis.
Withdrawal is the combination of physical and mental effects that a person experiences after they stop using or reduce their intake of a substance such as alcohol and prescription or recreational drugs.
ROUTINE AND DISCIPLINE
Routines remove any guesswork and stress-inducing uncertainty from the client's day, which can help them feel more in control and secure in their life. Good discipline generates a positive attitude towards society. It creates confidence and eagerness to do something great. Discipline helps people build an attitude that becomes the key to success.
