Our Team used to discuss with the family members. We realized that they also need emotional support, education about the disease and support during recovery of the addict, so we started regular family meetings. We also encouraged family members to attend group therapy, so they can understand what has been taught to the patient and how far he is progressing. To deal with marital problems we started meeting many couples. And then we realized that wives of addicts had inhibitions about talking freely in the presence of their addict husband. Therefore a special group called Sahachari – exclusively for the wives of addicts was formed. Our therapeutic model is a learning model. We go on changing the inputs based upon current requirements. We learnt about WPR (Whole Person Recovery) and modified our program. Similarly we adopted a slum area and learnt to effectively implement community based programs.Our trustee and well-known psychiatrist and a pioneer of de-addiction work in India, Dr. Pankaj Sanghavi, has been providing new therapeutic insights to us. At his instance Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) was made a part of the treatment. Our staff is given ongoing training by visiting experts.
