The Plight of Tibetan Refugees and Addiction

Many Tibetan refugees in exile grapple with the harsh reality of addiction. Displacement from their homeland, cultural adjustment difficulties, and trauma can all be significant contributing factors to substance abuse problems.

The Rewa Rehabilitation Centre: A Beacon of Hope

Unlike traditional programs focused solely on punishment, Rewa operates with a philosophy of compassion and trust. They create a safe and supportive environment specifically designed to foster healing for Tibetan refugees battling addiction.

Here’s what makes the Rewa Rehabilitation Centre unique:

  • Individualised Treatment Plans: Rewa recognizes that addiction stems from various causes. They tailor treatment plans to address the underlying issues each individual faces, such as trauma or cultural adjustment challenges specific to the Tibetan refugee experience.
  • Holistic Therapy: Addiction affects the body, mind, and spirit. Rewa’s approach combines medical care with effective counselling and emotional support, promoting holistic healing.
  • Life Skills Training: Rewa equips individuals with the tools they need to rebuild their lives after overcoming addiction. This includes vocational training, relapse prevention strategies, and healthy lifestyle habits.

Measurable Impact of Rewa’s Support

The success stories at Rewa are truly inspiring:

  • 57 individuals in 2023 overcame addiction and embarked on a healthier, substance-free future.
  • 10 young men secured meaningful employment after completing the program, some even finding work at the Rewa Restaurant itself!
