Freedom From Addiction


Addiction is defined as not having control over doing, taking or using something, to the point where it could be harmful to you and members of your family.

Addiction is most commonly associated with gambling, drugs, alcohol and smoking, but it’s possible to be addicted to just about anything, including: work, internet, shopping, food, gambling and so on.

The strain of managing an addiction can seriously damage your work life and relationships.

In the case of substance misuse (for example, drugs and alcohol), an addiction can have serious psychological and physical effects.

Rotary Club of Addiction Prevention, in collaboration with Rotary Club of Mumbai Elite, has launched Freedom from Addiction Series on Youtube.

Gratitude to Varun Kapur for providing us this platform.

The anchor for the shows is Rtn Girijaa Deshhpande.
