THE “UPLIFTMENT PROGRAM” REDIRECTS THE MIND
Sam Pillay, Chairperson of the Anti Drug Forum (ADF) in Durban, South Africa shares his insight regarding addiction, “The ADF firmly believes that it is essential to deal with the psychological aspects of addiction since this makes up to 95% of the rehabilitation process. Most addictions prey on the mind of the individual and thus it is essential to redirect the mind-set of the person in rehabilitation. This is why the Art of Living Foundation ‘Upliftment Program’ was adopted as a mandatory and crucial aspect of the rehabilitation process.”
Since the inception of the Anti Drug Forum wellness centre in January 2005, the pioneering holistic multi-disciplinary approach to rehabilitation has met with great measures of success: especially with patients who are committed to rehabilitation.
