Our Mission & VisionThe aim of Barasat Phoenix Foundation is to help the suffering addicts to come out of drug addiction and restore them to being productive members of their families and of society. This goal will be met through assessment, evaluation, residential counseling/caring, outpatient treatment and aftercare transitional support. Assessing and providing necessary help to the patient in all areas that impact his ability to recover. This includes addressing the six dimensions i.e. the patientís withdrawal and intoxication potential; biomedical health; mental health including emotional, cognitive, and behavioral issues; readiness/motivation to change; relapse potential; and recovery environment.
Addiction is nothing but a DiseaseInformation will be provided to the patient to help him or her understand addiction as a disease causing a moral/social failure, to develop understanding and practicing of the 12 Step recovery process. Individual and group therapies to include cognitive and experiential therapies to break through negative self-messages attitudes and behaviors that return a patient to chemical use. A holistic approach will be utilized, to include addressing spiritual and emotional blocks to recovery ( i.e. grief, shame, fear, anger, resentments, selfishness, self-pity, dishonesty, denial and disconnection from a Higher Power) by abiding by the 12 Step program . The patient will be supported in addressing social issues that contribute to chemical use, such as poverty, criminal background, and criminal and sexual victimization etc. Family education, counseling and support will be provided to help family members and others close to the patient to understand their own roles in the patientís disease, how to best support the patient to recover, and how to maintain their own well-being in the context of their loved onesí disease.
Through the above-mentioned process the patientís successful transition to health, family, society, and self-help group participation will be established, thus contributing to the patientís ongoing recovery from addiction and restoration to mainstream society.
