The treatment centre was founded by Mr.R.Palani, a sociologist who fell prey to this chronic disease at his young age. The pain and anguish which he underwent due to this disease created an awakening in him to help other suffering substance dependants and their families, paving way for the formation of Ashram foundation.

Spiritual Support Addiction is manifested physically, emotionally and spiritually.

We provide support for the individual to touch within themselves and to find the courage to be who they are.
