You may be wondering why you should choose DARA Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Thailand when there are a number of de-addiction centres in India. Many alcohol and drug rehab facilities in India however, have a very austere setting and are comparable to boot camps or prison compounds. With the recent documentary on the Drug and Alcohol Use in Punjab, it highlights this situation. The drinking culture in India is changing at an alarming rate, where previously it was rare for anyone to drink in India, it is now becoming commonplace.
Consider these recent newspaper quotes:
“What is of particular concern—and an important indicator of health risks—is that the signature pattern of alcohol consumption in India is frequent and heavy drinking. More than half of all drinkers fall into the criteria for hazardous drinking, which is characterised by bingeing and solitary consumption to the point of intoxication. Moreover, spirits account for 95% of the beverages drunk in India.” –Raekha Prasad, “Alcohol use on the rise in India,” The Lancet
Binge drinking behavior is treated as alcohol abuse or alcoholism in most western countries. India is struggling with how to handle this recent increase in the consumption of alcohol. Some drug rehab and alcohol rehab programs have been set up to attempt to deal with it.
“Under its National Drug De-addiction Programme, the Government of India has funded 483 detoxification and 90 counselling centres. Almost half of attendees are being treated for alcohol dependency.” –Raekha Prasad, “Alcohol use on the rise in India,” The Lancet
Residential or Outpatient De-addiction Drug and Alcohol Rehab
There are two main settings for drug & alcohol de-addiction treatment: Outpatient and in-patient (residential rehab). Please read our page, Make a Decision for Rehab, to learn more about these two types of drug & alcohol treatment settings.
