Situated in the Western Ghats, the greenery, climate and the pollution-free environment add as a major factor contributing to healing and recovery.
We believe in addressing the root of the problem that leads to addiction than to just suppress the urges and this is done with the help of therapy, diet and other physical activities such as nature walks, meditation etc.
Every individual is different and the recovery program is based on keeping in mind one’s preferences and choices in life to help them get the maximum benefit.

Founder & Director
Mrs. Gayathri Arvind
Mrs. Gayathri Arvind, an entrepreneur turned philanthropist and mental health advocate; she started Abhasa after realizing that conventional rehabilitation centres are not as effective, considering the punishment culture with which patients are managed. 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.
