Mukta Charitable Foundation had organized De-Addiction Awareness Seminar in collaboration with Rotary Ghatkopar, Mumbai recently. Former PMC Commissioner Mahesh Zagade
was the chief guest of this program. Trustee of Mukta Charitable Foundation Capt. Ashok Gole and Yogesh Zaveri of Rotary Ghatkopar (Mumbai) were also present.
Speaking on the occasion, Mahesh Zagade said that, despite knowing addiction is the major problem of our country, the government has not taken any initiative against addiction except the liquor ban. Sale and consumption of liquor is banned in some parts of our country but despite the ban, alcohol is sold which is the sign of a weak government system so NGOs should come forward to run campaigns to build awareness.
In a two-day seminar topics such as Alcohol Addiction, Tobacco addiction, Hard drugs, Internet addiction, Psychiatric comorbidities in addiction, Counseling of an addict, Family counseling and relapse prevention were covered.
Seminar started with the lecture on ‘Addiction is a disease’ by the Organiser Dr. Prakash Mahajan. C G Deshpande conducted a workshop on ‘Skills for changing Human Behaviour’.
Dr. Rupa Agarwal, Dwijen Smart, Dr. Swapnil Deshmukh, Dr. Ashutosh Chowhan, Dr. Rohan Bartakke and Dr Alok Deodhar provided guidance to the participants. Doctors, Addiction Counselors, Psychologists, Therapist, Medical Students had attended the seminar.
