Challenge

The rapid urbanization, social transition, migration, and changes in lifestyle have significantly increased alcoholism in rural areas. In the villages of Bangalore Rural District, almost 50% of the adult population drink, and at least 20% are dependent on alcohol. Women and children face the brunt of alcohol dependence among the men. Families are pushed into poverty, debt, job losses, women subjected to domestic violence, school drop out of children and social stigma and isolation of families.

Solution

The community-based de-addiction camps held close to their homes, gives an affordable and accessible option/opportunity to those desiring to give up their alcohol dependence. The follow-up individual, family and cluster counseling will provide on-going support to stay away from alcohol in post-camp period. The rehabilitation with assistance in job placement and livelihoods provides an opportunity to start life afresh; food on the table, children back in schools, restoring happiness and dignity.

Long-Term Impact

Improvement in the quality of life of the individuals and families in terms of the relationships, their social and economic condition. A significant drop in the occurrence of domestic violence, abuse of children and "community nuisance". Restoration of self-worth and dignity of the individual and re-integration into the family, community & society. Economic gains for the country due to reduction in injuries, disability, loss of life and increased productivity, especially among the young adults.
