Our Success Rate

ASV has a fairly good success rate – approximately 60 – 70% of residents are fully rehabilitated ie are able to lead a normal life and join the main stream of society; get employment, marry and have their own families. 20 to 25% are able to independently take care of themselves and engage in part time work; 10 – 15% leave before completing their treatment.

Unique Features

We collaborate closely with the client and family to design each person's program individually and activities are arranged to respect individual needs and interests. We use only optimum dosage of medication. We believe that people with mental illness can be taught to be aware and take responsibility for themselves, hence we need them to be less sedated. Because of this we use innovative methods when management becomes a problem & are not quick to hospitalize them. Therefore, we are able to accommodate residents from an acute phase to full recovery. Our staff resident ratio is almost 1:1

What is a ‘Therapeutic Community’

1A therapeutic community is a treatment facility in which the community itself, through self-help and mutual support, is the principal means for promoting personal change. They are also structured and psychologically informed environment where the social relationships, structure of the day and different activities together are all deliberately designed to help people’s health and well being.  In a therapeutic community residents and staff participate in the management and operation of the community, contributing to a psychologically and physically safe learning environment where change can occur.

Athma Shakti Vidyalaya as a therapeutic community represents a safe haven where members learn to cope with their problems and learn to relate with the world and society in a healthy manner.

Benefits of our Residential Treatment:

We believe in the proven effectiveness of supportive therapeutic communities for people coping with mental health issues.

  • Every resident is seen as a unique individual with strengths and weaknesses (like the rest of us), and is accepted and appreciated for who they are, rather than being viewed as a “case” or a “resident.”
  • Growth occurs in small steps, the product of individualized goals – ranging from habits of self care to changes in thinking, attitudes, beliefs and behavior.
  • A high level of supportive structure is built into daily life. All activities are designed to help residents establish normal, stabilizing routines for day and night.
