Where the term ‘habit’ finds connection with one’s physical dependence on a substance or drug; the very word ‘addiction’ creating compulsive obsession in the mind relates to the individual’s psychological dependence over the same. The WHO’s Expert Committee on Drug Abuse therefore replaced both with ‘dependence’ in 1964. Drug dependence means that a person needs a drug to function normally. The gamut of dependence encircles the phenomenon of use, abuse, misuse, tolerance and addiction finally creating a dependent out of a user.The drug demand is placed by the mind and the body yearns to seek the drug not for pleasure anymore but even for physical strength. Therefore, the unseemingly rising affliction must be caught at its root – the human mind. Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji possesses the divine password, to reconfigure obsessed minds, in the form of Dhyaan Therapy - a psychoanalytical spiritual science of traversing above the neurotic waves of mind and finding abode in one’s true identity – Atman, the real self. There is a usual human tendency of moving on to something better. Neurologists use the same philosophy to de-addict an abuser or a dependent by engaging him/her in other activities. Ironically, on the basis of the same philosophy the craving returns after severe withdrawals and the dependence continues. Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji says, “Only through spirituality can the mental obsession be totally cured and relapses prevented; as the Atman (the real self) is the utmost higher level of human existence where, when one reaches, there is no falling down”. By bestowing the science of awakening the Atman by Dhyaan Therapy, Shri Ashutosh Maharaj ji is cutting asunder the very root of addiction.
