The Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Centers are helping in eradicating vices amongst the rural folk and bringing down the crime rate, conflicts, litigations etc amongst these sections. The alcohol free movement under the pattern of the 'Alcoholics Anonymous' is proving as a saviour against marital discords and exploitation of the womenfolk.
For over 10 years The Kalgidhar Society has been providing assistance to people with a variety of social and spiritual afflictions. Patients come with issues of substance misuse, legal problems, relational conflicts, homelessness, unemployment, and most importantly, a need for spiritual awakening and restoration.
The Kalgidhar Society Rehabilitation Center in the rural North India provides an in-residence rehabilitation program with a focus on basic necessities. Each beneficiary is provided with a clean and healthy living environment, good food, work therapy, leisure time activities, group and individual counseling, spiritual direction, and resources to assist each person to develop life skills and a personal relationship with Almighty. The treatment is done through yoga sessions and daily meditation. Emphasis is laid to turn their maximum attention towards spirituality.
The stupendous 80% success rate is believed to be the result of spiritual atmosphere prevailing here.. Medicines are used to a very lesser extent. Regular follow-ups of the discharged cases by the doctors and volunteers of The Kalgidhar Society in their home town is another reason for this success rate. It has been observed in the follow-up visits that the discharged patients transform into totally newer personalities after their 6 weeks' stay at the center. They remain regular in reciting on the Divine Name and inspire other addicts to denounce drug-addiction and alcoholism.
