When a substance is introduced into the body, either by ingesting, snorting, injecting, or other methods, in order to alter mood or perception of reality this is called substance abuse. Rehabilitation is needed when abuse causes dependency. Prescription drugs, alcohol, and methamphetamines are the most commonly abused drugs. Addiction, be it mental of physical, can cause a person’s life to spiral out of control as they continue to abuse the drug.
We provide effective, highly personalized, and affordable rehabilitation programs to treat substance abuse in Southern California. Our most successful program is our 90-day program, but we also have flexible 30- and 60-day treatment programs, as well as a six-month tailor-made program for those who need extended assistance.

As we tour through Seemapuri – a congested slum in north-east Delhi, we find that drug and substance abuse are a way of life here. At every corner we find children injecting drugs into their veins or inhaling intoxicating substances. Some of the youth we spoke to say that relapse is very common owing to the easy availability of addiction causing drugs at extremely cheap rates. Children in this slum earn money for buying drugs by picking trash and selling them to scrap dealers. Some engage in crimes to fund their needs for drugs. (Audio in Hindi)
