Naya Savera is a non-profit organization registered under the Indian Trust Act of 1950. It established its first De- addiction & Rehabilitation Facility in 2008, in a small village (Jhiri) in Himachal Pradesh. Today, it is running two De-addiction & Rehabilitation facilities in Himachal Pradesh, one in Delhi and one in Noida (U.P.). Naya Savera has earned a reputation for its commitment to the cause of effective treatment of addiction/ alcoholism and awareness generation.
Drug addiction- A taboo in this society is mostly considered a habit which cannot be fixed . Many believe it is one pit hole from where a person cannot get out. Naya Savera, a non profit organisation is one pit stop fighting against such taboos and creating awareness for a disease like drug addiction. Yes, Addiction is a disease which was also recognised by the World Health Organisation in 1956. In this disease a person continuously gets intoxicated with his/her addiction and eventually becomes powerless to put a stop to this sickness.
While in addiction, an addict also looses track of their spiritual, financial and social aspects of life. Such a person then becomes a liability to the nation.
Mr. Arvind Kumar, a recovering addict himself, got inspired to serve the people weakened by this disease and founded ‘Naya Savera’ Drug De-Addiction & Rehabilitation Centre on January 1st, 2008.
However, where on one hand the young minds were getting trapped in addiction, there were also some awakened citizens like Dr. B.S Rawal who came forward to address the issue and encouraged Naya Savera like a pillar to the building.
Naya Savera’ incorporates a blend of ‘Narcotics Anonymous’’ 12 Steps program and the Therapeutic Community Program to heal the patients physically, mentally and spiritually. This has proven to be the most effective recovery program adopted by leading rehabilitation centres across the world.
Addicts are treated by experts under the support system of Mr. Arvind Kumar. In a very sensitised manner patients are included in various group activities.
Starting the day spiritually, addicts maintain a healthy routine throughout the day. Addicts also regain their lost health through Yoga, physical exercise and outdoor games such as badminton. Through a compulsory session of meditation, patients work on focus, concentration and anxiety. Appropriate literature is also provided to the patients to strengthen their mental faculties. During treatment, a patient is encouraged to take responsibility of other patients voluntarily so that their inter-personal relations can grow and benefit the society.
Through the observation and confrontation, addicts are made aware about their behavioral defects and how to improve upon those. An atmosphere of positivity and hope is maintained so that the patients can get an opportunity to explore their hidden potential.
It’s not just an addict who suffers but the family as well goes through a tough time. Naya Savera organises family interaction within a period of time which uplifts the family from the feeling of insecurity and despair. Families of addicts gather and exchange strength and hope amongst each other.
The organisation does not work within the 4 walls but also looks out for its family – the addicts after their job is done. On discharge a relapse prevention plan is prepared for each patient depending upon his/her personality and other circumstances. Patients are advised to keep in touch with the centre and their counsellors if and when they face difficulties in their daily lives. Patients are also encouraged to attend AA/NA meetings on a regular basis.
Regular follow-ups are conducted to help the addicts lead a serene and peaceful life after his/her discharge from the centre.
‘Naya Savera’ boasts of a team totally dedicated to the cause of recovery. The members are all recovering addicts who have found a new way of life and are committed to spread the message of recovery in the community.
This unique approach to recovery has helped ‘Naya Savera’ in becoming one of India’s best rehabilitation centre.’Naya Savera’ has become a revolutionary and a growing force. The popularity of Naya Savera has grown so much all over India that the Delhi government has licensed the Delhi centre which is currently operational.
