Puntambekartalk about addiction to alcohol and drugs and rising obsession with Internet and Facebook You have been working in the field of de-addiction for a long time How is the situation different today vis-a-vis when you started What are the new trends MP: Muktangan was started by my parents (Anil and Sunanda Awachat) 25 years ago When we startedabout 80 per cent of people who came to us were drug addicts and about 20 per cent alcoholics Nowit is the other way round Around 80 per cent are addicted to alcohol and about 20 per cent to drugs Out of this 20 per cent10 is brown sugar addicts and rest is addicted to other drugs like charasganja and even prescription drugs Todaythe average age is going down We get even 13 and 14-year-olds addicted to whitener or volatile solvents We are also getting patients aged between 15 and 25 years who are addicted to Internet aa: But 80 per cent drug addicts as patients did not mean that there were no alcoholics It did not represent the number in the society Back thenvery few thought that alcohol was a problem that needed treatment The awareness has increased Your book Muktanganchi Gosht is story of Muktangan How has your approach changed over the years in treating people MP: When my motherwho was a psychiatriststarted treating patientsshe had no experience of dealing with them We never call them patientswe call them friendsand she decided to learn from them She asked about their expectations and needs The Muktangan model was developed on this learning base and it continues even today Baba (Anil Awachat) always tells us to remain a student AA: When a person comes to usour effort is to develop a rapport with him or her We first talk to them about their problems After thatwe discuss if he or she wants to get back to the good days and what can be done for that They have to indirectly infer that the only alternative is leaving behind the addiction Seventy per cent of our staff are recovered addicts Is 100 per cent recoverypossible AA: No This is a disease prone to relapse Some need just one session of treatment For someit has to be repeated Five to 10 per cent keep coming back When they fall prey to cravingwe tell them to start afresh We focus on what went wrong the last time One to two per cent are beyond curethey are structured that way We can hardly do anything about underlying mental disorders and addictions MP: Recovery rate is better in India than in many other countriesbasically due to family support There is a lot of family involvement which is very crucial after discharge In cases where people are not ready to leave the addictionwe continue helping the family through guidance and counselling AA: After the dischargewe call them with the family and celebrate various occasions There are sessions of husband-wife togethercalled Sahajeevan We imbibe the thought that December 31 can be celebrated without alcohol It is never a problem of just one personit is essentially of the family Has there been any change in peoples willingness to admit that they need professional help MP: People are now quite open about it Earlier their reaction used to be”Am I madwhy do I need help” But now people are accepting it as a disease and the need for professional help What about trends in age groupssex and social strata from which patients come MP: It is mixed We get 13 and 14-year-olds and even 70-75-year-oldsboth men and women In terms of socio-economic statuswe get very highly educated doctorsengineers to even those who are illiterate What is the proportion of men and women MP: Our centre for women had 15 beds with two-three extra admissionswhere as we treat about 150 men at a time Has the number of womengone up MP: Yes When I starteda group of foreign students visited us and one of them asked why there were no women Back thenI was surprised at the question We do not have women addictswas my view then But since the last six-seven yearswe are getting a lot of women Initiallywe treated women only in OPDs or just did counselling But then they started telling us that they also want to get admitted We started a new ward called Nishigandh We get women commercial sex

But now they want to suppress it Do you get celebrity patients AA: Yes We do get children of celebrities OnceSunil Dutt had come to us He said he and his wife used to be busy in shooting and never had time to look at what their son was doing They never went to his school gatheringeverything was left to servants An industrialist’s son was brought to us His mother used to drink and take sleeping pills This boy took a sleeping pill when he was eight and started drinking when he was 11 or 12 You talked about economically higher class and those from slums But what about the middle classwhich is known to hold on to its values Is addiction less there AA: On the contraryit is the highest in the middle class The middle class has now climbed a step up They are in highly paid jobs in IT and other

lot of outstation students in Pune Do they also come to you MP: Yes They are alonehave no family here and have no one to control them They think small amounts of drugs and alcohol will help in dealing with stress and fall prey to it Have you ever tried talking to politicians who encourage alcohol consumption On one had you fight against alcohol and on the other hand some of them promote drinking

there should be warnings on everythingeven Facebook There are so many things which when used excessively can be harmful Do you think Facebook poses problems because you always see good things of

there case where parents offer alcohol to their children MP: Yes there are But most have observed their parents drinking Even parents are their role models A father who used to drink daily used to tell his son that it was his medicine as he had stress As the son grew uphe started demanding the medicine and got addicted to it AA: The probability of alcoholics’ children getting addicted is always
