About Us

SEVOK PRAYAS FOUNDATION is a contended rehabilitation facility where clients are treated with care and concern. It was established in February 2008, as a 10-bed facility. Today, it has grown to 25 beds. Sevok Prayas Foundation has earned an international reputation for its commitment, ethical standards and professional approach toward effective treatment of addictions.

Today, we are catering to clients from different parts of the world; such as Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, USA and all over India.

In a country with few treatment facilities and lack of guidelines and prescribed standards, Sevok Prayas Foundation has pioneered and benchmarked standards and protocols.

Sevok Prayas Foundation model is based on the famed ‘Minnesota’ model initiated in USA. The treatment aims at total abstinence achieved through the Twelve Steps program. The 12-Steps treatment model has been approved as one of the ‘most effective treatment for addictions’.

Sevok Prayas Foundation's approach is holistic: addressing the physical, psychological, emotional, social and spiritual areas toward total recovery. It also incorporates traditional Indian elements such as Yoga and meditation.

The facilities are comfortable with modern amenities and backed by competent medical and psychiatric resources.

A substantial number of the therapy team consists of recovering alcoholics and addicts: those who have traveled the road, experienced the pain of addiction and the joys of recovery. This lends an unmatched touch of empathy and identification to the therapy process.

Moreover, the counseling team undergoes regular skills-development programs and several members are enrolled in online educational programs.
