Our Treatment Activities
Today, substance abuse is a serious problem affecting many youths, families, and households in India. Astha Foundation, being a lead service provider in the field of substance abuse and mental health issues, delivers state of the art treatment for those, who are struggling to cope up with their lives due to chemical dependency in India.
Keeping in mind the need for treatment and care and support, Astha Foundation initiated a state–of–the–art De-addiction, Counselling & Rehabilitation Centre at the NCT of Delhi. As the name suggests it is a place of absolute tranquillity.
The Centre has been started with the aim to redefine treatment standards in the de-addiction and mental health field. We at Astha Foundation provide our beneficiaries a safe and homely environment. The “Centre” has special luxury rooms and dormitory with all types of facilities for total recovery and serenity and, relaxes your mind with yoga, meditation, recreation, and personal reflection.
An attempt is made to keep the Centre a place for complete recovery from all kinds of substance abuse, rest and relaxation away from the hustle & bustle and pressures of hectic life. It is a place for rejuvenation, a place to recharge oneself and recover from chemical dependency and mental stress. The Centre is uniquely advantageous for a long term (6 months) residential treatment program, depending on the status of the patient. However, our programme is customised according to each individual’s personal need and condition.
Astha Foundation looks after chemically dependent (alcohol & drugs) people of different kinds, of all ages. Astha Foundation primarily follows the state of the art designed programme, empowering intensive reflection, counselling, study, clean living, recreation, yoga, meditation, FGDs, family therapy and exercise; free of all use of substances alcohol and drugs. We at Astha Foundation endorse a widely acceptable and secular approach. This approach has made us one of the unique and only De-addiction, Counselling & Rehabilitation Centre in the NCT of Delhi, India.
We believe substance abuse and chemical dependency is a disease and total abstinence is the best way to manage the condition. Our approach is holistic, working with mind, body and spirit targeting a complete turnaround in behavioural change and attitudes of our beneficiaries putting them on the path to a healthy and productive life style.
We believe that every patient and the family that comes to our Centre for treatment has a unique background and set of circumstances. Therefore, treatment for each individual is customised and is targeted to achieve strong recovery. The treatment plan will be based upon the individual’s family history, choice of substance(s), physical and, mental health alongside various other factors.
On admission each patient is assigned a care team that will consist of a case manager, psychiatrist and a counsellor.
As we know, the majority of the patients have a co-occurring mental health disorder such as anxiety or depression, our Centre provides a clinically integrated approach that treats the mental health issues at the same time along with the addiction.
Do you want to break free from the
chains of addiction and lead a better life?

The Road to Recovery
Chemical dependence is a biopsychosocial disease. Treatment requires a holistic and systemic approach to address the physical, psychological, social and spiritual consequences of addiction. This is necessitated not only for patients, but for their families and significant others as well. At Astha Foundation, the spectrum of treatment services range from basic awareness and counselling sessions to intense in-patient care and through to after-care and family support.
Addiction is far more than the mere use of alcohol or drugs on a frequent basis. It causes multidimensional impairment in several areas of life. Treatment needs to address all these issues. At Astha Foundation, the focus is on addiction, not on the substance. Recovery, like addiction, is a process. With identifiable stages and characteristic symptoms. Addiction is a primary disorder and it demands a biopsychosocial treatment process.
