Monthly Doctor visit

Many of the addicts are despised and rejected by their family and community because of the stigma that has been attached to addicts. Due to which the addicts also go through a severe mental trauma led by it. For that sole reason, the Director of Mentsekhang have very kindly agreed to send one of their senior doctors to our centre every month to keep track on all the residents mental and physical health.

Meeting with Recovery

House Meeting is an in-house get-together of all residents held weekly or occasionally along with the administrative staff and counsellors where any-and-every area of concern, possible improvement can be discussed at length and a solution sought. A discussion that can vary from daily activities to ways to make the environment better - no subject barred.

Individual and group counselling

counselling in individual and in groups is one of the important technics for the recovery of an addict.


Prayer is the gateway to spirituality and each day begins and ends with prayer to reaffirm our faith in a Higher Power, developing humility, positivity of mind leading to serenity and peace.

A time where all residents are asked to sit back and relax with the all-powerful tool of music. from all religions are played and the residents are asked to do nothing but concentrate their thoughts on the music and the positive energy vibes radiated from this group activity, and seeing how all negativism evaporates into thin air without lifting even as much as a finger.

Meditation is a powerful tool that helps in regaining the lost concentration. Meditation addresses the spiritual bankruptcy, spiritual void and body-mind-spirit disconnect that develops as a result of active addiction.

This is an important tool in recovery where one pens down his feelings throughout the day. It helps to attain clarity and distil thoughts and also to find a way to deal with issues faced throughout the day. It is an important tool in self-analysis and to know one's inner self.

Active addiction takes a huge toll physically on the body. Severe loss of stamina, very low strength - most of this damage is reversible, but only through regular practice of developing a healthy physical routine. Apart from a balanced diet, the body needs to be brought back to a regular fitness routine. To recover from the unfit and unhealthy condition developed due to active addiction. Age-old Yoga is practiced to help in this physical recovery process.


Buddhist philosophy is academy study with logic and reason. Moreover, as this Rehab is mainly based on the Tibetan traditional to cope with Tibetan youths who face lot of difficulties in other rehab with culture, language and behaviour.

These sessions are aimed at providing information about the various drugs and substance abuse and the different kinds of damage it does to the alcoholic/addict and his body at all levels - physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, family, social, financial, professional, etc.

In addition, painting, sketching, envelope making, paper bag making, candle making, block printing with paper as well as cloth, glass painting and many such creative exercises are undertaken at a group as well as individual level. The Director of Mentsekhang, has also very kindly given our patients a job of wrapping Tibetan pills and cleaning herbal with which money that will help our patients to make some income.

These classes are meant to study the addiction related A.A. & N.A. official literature, actual cases of alcoholics and addicts and their personal experience of dealing with this epidemic during the active addiction phase and how they recovered. The literature is read aloud among all the residents followed by discussions.

This is with the purpose of pinpointing key areas of concern and attention. This includes active addiction, as well as ways and means out of addiction. It helps the alcoholic/addict know himself better, and in turn gain a better understanding of the disease he is afflicted with and ways to overcome it.

A daily event where a resident is asked to verbalize the feelings that went through his head all day in the presence of the whole group. From fears, to how to overcome them; from worries to ways to dissipate tensions; from expectations to how to meet them, and so on. Counsellors guide the residents to where their feelings come to a standstill and to find a way to move forward, keeping in mind the new-found way of living a clean and sober, disease free life.

We let all the residents sit down and share their own experiences, their individual fight against the addiction and experiences, so to help understand each other better and to inspire and encourage each other.

Periodically the former patients of our centre who are now clean/sober come down to ‘sit and share’ with the current patients, to share with them their own struggle during the days, how they overcame it, and to listen to the residents struggles and experiences during their recovery.

Seemingly unimportant tasks but the residents are made to realize the paramount importance of self-dependency and hygiene. In active addiction these things take the lowest level in priorities, but their importance is restated and emphasized. The best way to do it is to make the alcoholic/addict accountable for his own environment, starting with himself. Each resident is assigned daily, routine, everyday tasks and is held accountable for the assigned task at hand, also ensuring respect for authority and developing a sense of responsibility.

All work and no play? That isn't the case here. Dance sessions are a weekly activity where all residents let loose and find an outlet to release unexpressed (pent -up )energy. Here, in a therapeutic and fun way, the alcoholic/addict is made to feel and is reintroduced to the real meaning of "enjoyment" without recourse to his intoxicant. Who says an alcoholic/addict can't have fun without his drug?

A time where all residents are asked to sit back and relax with the all-powerful tool of music. from all religions are played and the residents are asked to do nothing but concentrate their thoughts on the music and the positive energy vibes radiated from this group activity, and seeing how all negativism evaporates into thin air without lifting even as much as a finger.

On weekends, the residents are reacquainted with the importance of keeping a fixed time for leisure and relaxation, in the form of watching a movie with everyone. Nothing like a cup of coffee and watching a nice relaxing movie together to make the point stronger.
