India has seen a rapid rise in drug abuse since the past decade. Its proximity to the golden triangle, that is, Myanmar, Laos and Thailand and the golden crescent, that is, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran, makes it the perfect hub for smuggling drugs like opium, therefore, increasing the number of opium dependents dramatically. Fighting the war on drugs has turned out to be fruitless for government authorities like drug enforcement agencies.
Moreover, the rise in the number of drug dependents or substance abusers is also because of the way Indian society treats addicts. Instead of empathising with drug addicts, the society completely shuns them. The stigma that is associated with drug use discourage many addicts to even admit that they are dependent on these intoxicating substances. And even if they do admit, they find it difficult to talk about their problems for the fear of judgement. This worsens the case as the society in which the addict tries to strive rejects them.
Also, the pop-culture portrayal of Nasha Mukti Kendra in India has been that of a prison cell where addicts are physically restrained and treated like inmates. That cannot be any further from the truth, deaddiction centres like Vikalp Nasha Mukti Kendra have been fighting really hard to rid the society of the menace that is drug addiction. Run by a team of ex-addicts who themselves have been in the path to sobriety for the last 25 years, counsellors at Vikalp understand exactly what any drug addict goes through, both physically as well as mentally.
