Asha Hospital – Rehab and Drug De Addiction Centre
Welcome to Asha Hospital
ASHA launches KOPBHAWAN for Happiness Modern India is epitaph of nuclear and broken family with distressed relationships. Aggression is evident in every family and hardly any member understands the reasons behind it. As in the old times when there was Kopbhawan concept; the same is badly needed again. In today’s family, aggression persists for long time and there is less of financial dependency because the family members are earning and mostly independent.
ASHA understands this concern and in our Workshop held today – 29 th Jan, 2020 Dr. Prashant Shukla (Psychiatrist) said that understanding the problems of aggression is a must for every family. We hardly find Joint Families and grave Gurus who used to calm aggressive persons and relieve them of their tensions, comments Chitra Srivastava (Psychologist). We live in haphazard emotions because of fast track lifestyles changing now and then, and this brings series of emotional outbursts often hurting the relational build up of family; says Hirendar Singh (Psychiatric Social Worker). A new era is beginning and Kopbhawan concept is badly needed so that the problems are dealt comprehensively of every distressed family member, and ASHA has thus launched Kopbhawan room in its premises, visions Dr SP SHUKLA , President, ASHA . Distressed families may contact our 24×7 Helpline No. 7080570077
Moreover, ASHA Mental Home has psychiatric and addict inmates who cannot control their aggression. Kopbhawan is a room within the campus where any troubled patient goes and stays. This would at once raise an alarm and the staff would provide them with special counselling sessions if there problem is genuine. If the problem is not genuine then it would be staff responsibility to make the patient aware and realise his mistakes. This concept is new-fold and is in right direction to ease such aggressive peoples.

Dr. S. P. Shukla
As director of Asha hospital he holds immense experience of nearly 45 years in medical field. He has done his MBBS from GSVM Kanpur way back in 1975. He comes from the classical era of medicine when more emphasis was given to classical symptoms and immaculate history rather than the present era of investigative diagnosis. Having practiced medicine for such a long time, he takes no time in diagnosis, and is available with a quick and practical solution of the patient’s problem. His patients are always very happy with his empathic approach which is considered very important for patients suffering from psychiatric illness.
He is also responsible for all emergency medical services and treatment of all other medical conditions of the patients. Problems pertaining to liver and other vital organs are common to drug abuse patients, which are taken care by Dr. S. P. Shukla. His expert advice and only desired medication to patients having such problems, not only helps the patients for a speeded recovery but also develops confidence in patients that they are in safe hands. Although he specializes in general medicine, he has special interest in field of mental illness and drug abuse. His attitude towards patients suffering from various addictions like alcohol, opioids or nicotine is non-judgmental and provides them with unconditional support. He believes that addiction is a chronic illness like diabetes or hypertension and so relapse is a rule rather than exception. Whenever a patient relapses he offers his unconditional support and never judges there intentions. He says proper medication along with motivational enhancement therapies work wonders for patients who have been to rehabilitation centers or de-addiction centers even for several times before. So whenever he comes across any such patient of addiction who has relapsed into drugs, his approach is not of anger or frustration but of motivating patients and their families to continue the fight against drugs. He also teaches the family of these addicts to support them in their fight with drugs, to have a non-confrontational approach with patients.
Irrespective of his empathetic behavior towards his patients, he is very strict and enforces strict instructions to patients for maintaining good hygiene and cleanliness for them-selves as well as their surroundings. Littering within the hospital premises is a strict NO from him. He has made strict rules which are imposed on patients for their daily routine, sports, exercises and recreation.
