It literally means getting rid of the toxins. Detoxification in alcohol/drug dependent persons is the process by which the body of the person is brought back to normal state of well being from the state of alcohol/drug dependence. Hence detoxification is the beginning of treatment for alcohol/drug dependence which needs to be followed by other treatments to deal with underlying addiction.
Detoxification for persons addicted to any drug also mean the same only differing in the management and presentation.
Detoxification may or may not be necessary depending upon an individual’s age, medical status and duration of alcohol/drug intake.
At KRIPA detoxification is carried out under the supervision of Psychiatrist, Physician, Nurse, Counselors and Care Takers.
Group therapy is practiced in almost all rehabilitation centers as it brings about a sense of recovery as they do it as a group. They tend to build relationships which serve as systems of support for all clients.
Individual intensive sessions with the client is an important part of the recovery process. Here the client has intensive ‘one on one’ session with their designated counselor
Client is also given motivational therapy on a ‘one on one’ basis so as to see what motivates him to stay sober / clean and motivate and build on that to see progress.
RELAPSE PREVENTION THERAPY
This ideally focuses on relapse and what one can do so as to not relapse. They are equipped with information and skills which they can use once they leave the rehabilitation centre so as to not relapse.
Information is power. We at KRIPA firmly believe in educating the client. We believe that once he knows he will do better. Education regarding addiction, effects it has in all spheres of his life, what he can do about it are all explained to the clients. Equipping them with these skills will help them understand addiction and they will be able to deal with their addiction in a more effective way. When awareness is given, 50% of the problems are solved.
It is important for them to take part in recreational activities as well so we have recreational indoor activities which are part of the daily schedule as well.
YOGA / MEDITATION / EXERCISE
It is also important to work on the physical health of the client hence we have yoga, meditation and exercise as part of the routine which instills a sense of discipline and helps them to be physically fit as well. We have a multi-gym exclusive for the patients.

REGULAR AA / NA MEETINGS:
Alcoholics anonymous are a worldwide fellowship of men and women who share a desire to stop drinking alcohol. At KRIPA while 12 step programme of AA/NA is followed here. Other inmates who had trouble due to addiction and now maintaining sobriety are encouraged to share their views. The counselor will guide through the sessions and will also encourage open discussion while he is steering the meeting. Narcotics anonymous (NA) is also in the similar lines of AA but here it is the other drugs to which the person is dependent. It is generally observed that more than one drug dependence is found while one causing havoc in life.
