Abstract
Background: Many studies have been conducted on prevention and treatment of substance abuse but focus on recovery phase is still little. Recovery from addiction is a process of reconnecting and taking oneself back; finding their voice. Spirituality, social support, family support, and hobbies have played major role in self-help recovery programs and the treatment of substance use disorders (addictions) for a long time. The previous studies focused on problems associated to the life of substance abusers raised the question on whether these factors could influence their recovery. Set against this background, this study explains the role of non-pharmacological modalities in the recovery of substance abusers.

Aim and Objective: This study aims to study the role of non-pharmacological modalities in recovery of relapse cases of substance abuse.

Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional study was carried out at drug deaddiction center attached to Government Medical College, Amritsar, between January 1, 2015, and December 31, 2015, involving 400 male relapse cases. The subject who visited drug deaddiction center was visited which was included in the study based on inclusion and exclusion criteria. The collected data were entered into Microsoft Excel sheets and analyzed in EPI INFO VERSION 7. Prior approval from the Institutional Ethical Committee was obtained.

Results: Significant association of hobbies and fitness measures with state of mind and degree of satisfaction with life was seen.

Conclusion: The study highlights need of peer recovery support system and family support.
