ADDICTION is perhaps the most devastating problem. It kills the addict and destroys the family. It is also bewildering. The family affected by alcohol or drug addiction desperately seeks help, but does not usually know where to go. They try all sorts of methods and go to all sorts of persons and places, but to no avail.
There is one place, however, that can provide all the help or hope they need, Hope Trust, a rehabilitation centre located in Hyderabad. It is a place for effective, ethical and confidential treatment of alcohol and drug addiction, with proven protocols and a high recovery rate.
Hope Trust is a pioneer in the field and has helped hundreds of families struggling with addiction for over a decade. It has two facilities located at Banjara Hills and provides inpatient and outpatient services.
Since addiction affects all areas of the addict’s life, the treatment at Hope is holistic, addressing the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual aspects. The program incorporates the WHO-approved ‘12 Steps’ and is based on the renowned Minnesota model. The recovery of the addict is enhanced by Yoga and meditation. There is competent medical and psychiatric back up.
The staff includes experienced addiction therapists, psychologist, psychiatrist and medical personnel. Continual upgradation of skills is ensured by in-house and external educational programs.
Hope Trust is in collaboration with one of Canada’s leading rehabs, Renascent. They share knowledge and best practices and have conducted staff exchange programs too.
The track record and international reputation of the facility attracts clients from all over the world like Australia, Dubai, Malaysia, Sultanate of Oman, Singapore, USA, UK etc. Hope Trust has a good record with dual diagnosis cases (persons with both addiction and psychiatric issues).
Hope Trust also conducts services for the community. Recently, it initiated a program for street children affected by addiction in the Charminar area, and regularly conducts sensitization programs in jails, schools and corporates.
Hope Trust is the place to reach out to in case there is an addict in the family.
“The process of recovery is tough and gradual. It requires courage and patience. But the end result is worth it”, says Rajeshwari Luther, Director of the Institute.
