Bengaluru-based Cadabams Hospitals has introduced the Anunitha Deaddiction Centre for Women, aimed at addressing substance abuse among women. This initiative responds to concerning statistics from the National Survey on Substance Use in India, which estimates that approximately 57.4 lakh women in the country are struggling with substance abuse.

The centre is dedicated to providing a specialized and supportive environment tailored to the unique challenges women face when seeking help for addiction. Neha Cadabam, Psychologist and Executive Director at Cadabams Hospitals, underscores the role of peer pressure and societal expectations in driving young women towards addiction, emphasizing the need for a non-judgmental space where they can seek assistance.

Anunitha Deaddiction Centre for Women sets itself apart by offering evidence-based therapies specifically designed to address the needs of women. This includes trauma-informed care, gender-sensitive approaches, and a therapeutic model incorporating mindfulness and holistic treatments.

The centre’s team of professionals is committed to delivering compassionate care and empowering women to achieve lasting recovery. Female staff members, gender-specific facilities, and support groups led by female therapists contribute to fostering a sense of community and trust among recovering women.

Sandesh Cadabam, Managing Director at Cadabams Hospitals, highlights the importance of challenging existing narratives surrounding addiction rehabilitation and creating a supportive environment conducive to recovery.

Anunitha also provides a comprehensive aftercare program to aid women in transitioning back into society and maintaining their recovery journey. Personalized nutritional and fitness programs further support their overall well-being, ensuring they have the necessary resources for optimal healing.

The launch of Anunitha Deaddiction Centre for Women signifies a commitment to raising awareness and providing support for addiction issues among women in India. It marks a significant step towards destigmatizing addiction and advocating for accessible, compassionate care for all individuals.
