Addiction does not allow anybody to escape

Ajay

Although he belonged to a well educated family, went to good schools, and was raised as an obedient, polite and well mannered person it did not prevent Ajay from starting his 6 years of rendezvous with heroin and cocaine.

Why he started using drugs! Probably it was an experiment or excitement shared with friends, he is not sure. But he is sure that, facing rejection at SSB interview, gave him license to use drugs aggressively. As a result, he started to borrow money excessively from everyone. By hiding his addiction from his family he manipulated them for a long time. Every day he had to travel 80 kms to secure his drugs. He tried number of times to quit his habit but failed all the times. His family no longer could withstand his deteriorating condition and discovered the Hermitage, to get him treated. Next thing he knew was "going" into 'withdrawals' from drugs at Hermitage.

“I knew I was really not looking for help in the beginning, but I was having nightmares in sleep. I used to wake up crying, craving and miserable. But slowly as I was becoming part of the rehab’s program those nightmares were gone and I was relearning how to sleep like a baby.” says Ajay. Both he and his family started learning about the cunning nature of addiction. “That was the time I got interested in getting clean, for real. I learnt how to protect myself from triggers and associations and handle my cravings.”

Thanks to Dr JPS Bhatia and his team at Hermitage for not only saving one life but a whole family

Dr Bhatia and team cleared my doubts that drinking alcohol is not a defect of character or a habit...The patient is drinking not because he is immoral or it is lack of will power. He drinks because he has a disease .He explained this scientifically .Dr.Bhatia is a humble and generous doctor who calmly listens to your woes, doubts ; past experiences and guides .He simply provides a ray of light in the darkness to the patient and in family membes lives...thankyou Dr.Bhatia.

Addiction does not allow anybody to escape

A person addicted to drugs finds himself quite isolated and alone. His family and friends alienate him. As he struggles with his addiction his relations are destroyed. The excitement which lures one into drugs slowly becomes a constant circle of carelessness, criminal activity, and numbness

Hermitage graduate grows stronger in Sikhism faith

Alcoholism is a condition where a person has a physical dependence on alcohol, craves it and has withdrawal symptoms if he or she tries to quit. Punjab has a drug problem like other states of India. Drug traffickers make their way into the area and make the state a hub of their operations.

It took only one drag of smack for jasbeer

It took only one drag of smack for Jasbeer to realize that he had found a new way to feel comfortable in his life. He was no longer in any doubt, fear or worry. He became unconcerned about the trouble he was experiencing at work with his father and his wife at home.
