Addicted to 'de-addiction' tourism
ET reports that there are now close to 400 de-addiction centres across India and the marriage of tourism with de-addiction has been drawing Gen Y to the hospitality sector.
Its not just Indians, even foreigners with drug abuse problems have been thronging these destinations to get a flavour of Indian tourism as they get treated across exotic locales of the country. Combining medication with meditation as one spends quality time amid tea gardens, backwaters or wilderness is not just an experiment of sorts - its supposed to transform a person completely. Charging Rs 2 lakh for customised packages that could last from one week to one month, the companies are targeting not just Indians but also those with substance abuse problems in Europe, US and Africa.
