Why Abhasa?

Location: Situated in the Western Ghats, the greenery, climate and the pollution-free environment add as a major factor contributing to healing and recovery.

Founder & Director

The alarming growth in the number of alcoholics and addicts, and lack of centres which provide critical care strongly motivated her to work on a model that takes up a holistic approach in treating their clients physically, mentally and emotionally without the usage of brute force or suppression.
