Nityanand Institute Of Medical Science (NIMS)
Nityanand Rehabilitation and Residential Mental Health Care was established by Dr. Nitin Dalaya in June 2002 with a sole purpose of providing a range of psycho-social rehabilitation services for clients suffering from various PSYCHIATRIC ILLNESSES including SUBSTANCE ABUSE. Dr. Nitin Dalaya is a post graduate from B.J.Medical college, Pune. After starting his practice as a consultant psychiatrist at various multi-speciality institutions he came across a lot of difficulties in delivering services to the affected population.
Nityanand – Pachane is the 1st branch of Nityanand Rehabilitation Centre at Hinjewdi and was developed with an improvised attempt and effort to render promising services to the population suffering from various mental health problems and drug addiction. The Centre upholds a quality of life as its central concern. It is spread over 20 acres of lush green surroundings, beside a dam, surrounded by tall mountains and in the lap of mother nature. Nityanand operates in various sectors in the field of mental health. It has a separate psychiatric ward, addiction ward, retirement township and a child guidance centre. Each ward has a central courtyard with big corridors, ample space within the block and well furnished with the ambience like of a traditional village. Comfortable living spaces, full fledged functioning Day-care activity zone, equipped gymnasiums, open dining area, conference hall, pleasant counselling cubicals, jogging tracks, beautiful gardens and playgrounds around make the stay at the centre a memorable experience. Nityanand Rehabilitation Centre which also provides facility to treat drug addiction caters a treatment program aiming to venture from denial to acceptance by teaching the disease concept, giving the necessary skills and also by following the 12 step AA and NA program. Psychiatric experts provide services in the form of Medicine management and monitoring, individual counseling, Group work and family psycho-education. Hence the set-up is a self-sustaining and independent comprehensive structure giving the clients a feeling of ‘Home away from home’ which is cost effective and in a designed paradigm.
Over the period of years NRC, a residential institute, has grown and established itself independently as one of the important institutions in and around Pune and functions independently at 2 set-ups. It is helping clients attain remission, stay stable, prevent future institutionalization and be functional members of the society and achieve a better quality of life.
