De addiction Program
The program for drug addiction and alcoholism in ADAPT is for a period of 2 or 3 months. Our treatment method is a combination of Medication and Psychotherapy.
First month: Detoxification
During the first month, we concentrate on the physical part of the disease as most of the patients undergo withdrawal symptoms which could last anywhere between 3 to 5 days. During this period, the focus would be on treating and helping the patient in overcoming the withdrawal symptoms under the supervision of a doctor and nursing attendants available at our center. As the patient stabilizes he/she will be introduced into the group for the further course of treatment.
Second to Third months:
During these months, the patient will be attending sessions conducted by our counselors on varying aspects of recovery to help and encourage patient in developing coping skills leading to a life of abstinence and recovery. The sessions will be based on psychotherapy.
