Surge Towards the Skyline…
Our dream is creation of an addiction free society. To translate it into reality, we employ awareness programs, de–addiction treatment facilities and comprehensive rehabilitation programs.
Our primary objective is the evolution of a spontaneous treatment module in tune with our culture and human values, based on actual life experiences.
We are convinced that this collective and collaborative experiment based on scientific methods will awaken the spirit inherent in human beings and enhance hopes of a meaningful life, in every individual who shares this dream.
We extend total support and assistance to achieve rehabilitation of every individual and his family to the path of addiction free life.
We maintain the professional ethics – extending the best of every possible support towards the achievement of this goal.
Having established a mission let us see how Muktangan went about developing a treatment model.
Muktangan De–addiction Center was established on 29th August, 1986. The late Dr. Anita Awachat, founder of the center decided to follow an evolving approach in developing a treatment model. From what she perceived of the addiction problem, she was convinced that
- Addiction is a disease.
- Friends admitted need security and love.
- They should be given opportunity to express their creative instincts.
- They should restore faith in values.
- They need to be accepted by family members and support also should be given to their family members.
- Most importantly, the friends admitted should be emotionally comfortable.
Madam used to discuss with the friends what would help them recover. Some said that music might help, so music therapy was introduced. One of the friends admitted was a physical trainer. He set up an exercise regime for the inmates. Madam used to learn Yoga and she thought it would be useful during recovery, so Yoga was introduced. Madam started attending AA meetings and understood their vital importance in the recovery process so AA meeting was introduced. Gradually, a systematic therapy structure evolved.
