Pathways to Recovery Model of Youth Substance Abuse in Assam

  • Introducing the Pathways to Recovery Model

    The Pathways to Recovery Model has been created from the experience of young Assamese men and women in recovery from drug abuse and refined by mental health and deaddiction experts from our Partner Organisations Mind India and Nirmaan Rehabilitation Facility. You can view an animation of the pathways here and the trailer here. Recovery can be a winding path with round-abouts difficult to exit and culdesacs providing no way forward. We offer a map of phases to help navigate this difficult terrain: recreational use, relaxed addition, chaotic addiction, strategic addiction, and supported recovery

  • Phase 1. Recreational Use

  • Phase 2a. Relaxed Addiction

  • Phase 2b. Chaotic Addiction

  • Phase 2c. Strategic Addiction

  • Phase 3. Supported Recovery
