Despite being a dry state, Gujarat faces a major issue with alcohol and drug abuse. According to the Ministry of Home Affairs, Gujarat is the 3rd worst state in drug overdose related deaths. Alcohol is easily available and the police keeps cracking down on contraband throughout the state. Ahmedabad being one of the major cities in the state is home to many who have become dependent on alcohol.
Adulteration of alcohol is also a major problem in Ahmedabad as it is illegal and there is no regulation to govern the supply. This cause many health issues as well to the ones who drink it. The social taboo against alcohol addiction is also quite high in this state. A cross-sectional study conducted at a deaddiction centre in Ahmedabad reported that most commonly consumed was substance was alcohol (64%), followed by tobacco (20%), cannabis (12%) and opium (4%).
Other popular drugs are hashish, cough syrup and whitener. A major reason is that the Prohibition Act that ban alcohol pushes people to try out other drugs. Gujarat is also becoming a hot-spot for drug cartels to smuggle in drugs along the coastline, both natural and synthetic.
Rehabilitations centre in Ahmedabad have progressed quite a lot in the last decade, with more centres taking active initiative in applying scientific and effective models of recovery. In these centres, the majority of the older population is addicted to alcohol whereas the youth is more likely to be addicted to natural or synthetic drugs.
Hence the treatment program needs to take the trends of the target population into consideration when designing treatment programs, especially in the initial stage of detox and withdrawal management. The Twelve-step program used in rehabs helps people to come to a place of acceptance about their illness and build their motivation to remain sober.

Our destination treatment program has been known to have very effective results with people suffering from addiction to different kinds of substances. Here are some of the highlights of our program:
Codependency is an unhealthy and dysfunctional relationship whereby, the loved one of the addict tries to rescue or help the addict live a functional life, but in doing so has the opposite effect of enabling the addict's dysfunctional behavior. The codependent bears the negative consequences of the addict's behavior the most and hence is most affected by their actions.
The stress created affected both the codependent and the addict and keeps them trapped in a toxic relationship which disturbs both. Thus, pushing the addict more towards their substance and emotionally disturbing the codependent more. Psychotherapy and counselling are needed to rebuild a more positive and supportive relationship between the two parties.
Codependency counselling is done separately with the loved one of the addict and the addict themselves, as well as together in joint sessions. Trust building, improving communication and creating a safe space for both of them to grow and nurture themselves and their relationship ship is the crux of codependency treatment at ZorbaWellness
