Skill Development and Vocational Training
At our Nasha Mukti Kendra we not only rid the curse of addiction and prepare our patients (we call them patients because addiction is a disease) for the life ahead, a clean life free from drugs and alcohol. We also remove road blocks from their lives. Many who come to our Kendra are in and out of work with no stability in their lives. We help them develop skills which will provide them with work and help them find their true vocation in life. They have many interesting skills to choose from:
Our Nasha Mukti Kendra in Dehradun is also associated with our own media production house, Dehradun Film Production. We have an expert panel of professionals who visit our center on a regular basis to teach and hone the skills of the people taking a rehabilitation program. We teach the connected skills of audio production and video production.
Audio Production: Audio production capsule comprises of basic sound recording setup.
Video production: Video production capsule comprises writing, shooting, lighting & directing.
Computers are part of our day-to-day life. It is essential to have a working knowledge of computers. We provide computers for patients, we give them an overview of computers and teach MS Office, which includes MS Word, MS Excel, PowerPoint & data entry.
With organic farming, we try to take our patients closer to nature and inculcate the habit of growing vegetables and keeping plants. We have prepared a kitchen garden where they learn the skills in a small way, so that after the recovery they can pursue this good habit of growing health-based crops in their homes. Our program includes cropping of seasonal vegetables, natural fertilizer use, nutrition and regular watering of plants.
We believe that music refreshes the mind like no other source. We have regular music sessions every day at our facility. Our music teacher encourages the patients to sing. Along with that, we also impart the knowledge of music theory, playing musical instruments and some knowledge of composing.
Every member of our Kendra is encouraged to cook for every one of us. Slowly and slowly, they are brought into the kitchen and, under the guidance of our cook, they prepare all kinds of Indian dishes. By the time they finish the program, they become excellent cooks themselves. Our focus is on nutritional foods which help in maintaining a proper diet which is good for the body and mind.
We do a beginner’s course in photography and teach the patients how to use a camera. We give them tips and tricks to capture amazing photographs. Our effort is to teach them how to operate a camera, how to compose a photograph, how to identify perfect lighting, photo editing tips, how to focus a camera, how to find their own unique photography style and social media tips for photography.
