      The vital factors for the success of complete cure from the addiction is self-motivation, self-understanding , the skills and determination to quilt the habits. The family's encouragement and support are also important and crucial towards the goal of recovery and healthy life.

      In order to achieve this goal, The Wise Mind program is developed  and designed to educate the addicts  the  skills they need to achieve normal senses of well being and regain control of their lives again.

      Our Wise Mind program utilizes the popular and well-accepted method of a 28 days program or Minnesota model and 12 steps recovery program as suggested by Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous.  We also bring in the Buddhist teaching and Western thinking such as Motivation Interviewing (MI) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) assimilated into our treatment program which will maximize the success and serve as significant components of recovery.

Group therapies Technique used in Wise Mind Program

1. Health and Psychological education – It creates awareness about the brain disease that is dependent to alcohol or substance abuse. It teaches how to take care of one-self and health during the rehabilitation and recovery stage.

2. The 12 steps facilitation (TSF) – It builds upon the 12 steps recovery program which treats the individuals as a whole ; mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. We facilitate the Buddhist teaching into this 12 step program as a tool to help the patient to achieve the wisdom and peace of mind.

CBT sees addiction as a behavior rather than a disease and is subsequently curable. It teaches how to handle the cravings effectively and the skill to prevent the relapse.
