Training and Research at Sawera Foundation

Since 2001 we have been working with the problem of drug addiction. This has helped us accumulate a wealth of experience in handling drug addicts, dealing with their problems, helping them get back to living, and making sure they remain drug-free even after they cease to be residents of the center. And we are more than willing to share this experience of ours with anybody desiring to gain it.
We have students from other Institutes of Social Science coming over regularly to Sawera Foundation for field work and block placements. We are also willing to offer short-term in-house workshops which can provide training to social workers and others interested in working with addicts/alcoholics.
Our Research Department analyses data of records of patients to keep abreast of our growth and gives feedback. Our recovery rate has been calculated to be 74.74 %.


2. TREATMENT RESULTS

The constant dynamic process of change and changing is known and accepted as a pro – active challenge to all community members. Achieving recovery requires active participation through all the stages of the recovery process. During August, 2005 an “informal” evaluation was completed by the Sawera Foundation staff, the focus of assessment was each individual’s “here and now” situation.
The follow–up involved all persons admitted for treatment during September 22, 2000 – August 30, 2005, of a total number of 355 admissions this evaluation was able to ascertain information regarding 224 individuals.
In 2001 and 2005 we can see a marked improvement in the results, with 62% and 71% positive treatment outcomes respectively. According to a recent survey the recovery rate for the period September 2006 – August 2007 was found to be 71.88%. The cumulative recovery rate since the foundation of the organisation till August 2007 is 74.74%.


3. CONCLUSION

The results from year 2005 show increase of 1.39 % positive treatment outcomes over the duration of 1.5 year period from February 2006 to August 2007.
