HYDERABAD: Banjara Hills, a favourite haunt of the police in search of drug peddlers, is going to have a nonresidential rehabilitation centre for drug addicts soon. To be set up by the Academy of Human Excellence run by Acharya Wenkat, it will help all kinds of addicts, be it drugs, smoking, alcoholism or sex.

A practicing hypnotherapist, Wenkat claims his alternative medicine practices, drawn from the West, would yield results in the Indian context too.

So how different is it from other centres? “This is a non-residential rehabilitation centre which means patients would be allowed to go back home, unless they are found to be suffering from chronic disorders,” he replied.

The three-month programme offered by him costs less than Rs 8,000-10,000.

Each batch would only have a maximum of 12 patients. The centre will also offer hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, yogic healing etc in collaboration with experts from the city. The centre will be opened on April 3.

Asked how a rehabilitation centre helps in curing diseases like diabetes, arthritis and cancer, he said, “every disease has a presenting problem and an actual problem. The moment we identify the actual reason, we would be able to crack it though it’s a time-bound process."
