De-addiction needs a well-planned holistic approach that includes, herbal medication, personal counseling, a yoga regime and meditation. According to Ayurveda, addiction is considered under the topic of Madatyaya, meaning intoxication. Madatyaya is the state or symptoms that arise due to continuous use or a high dose of substances that are intoxicating. In Ayurveda, Madya is the opposite of ojas (source of energy), which is a pre-requisite for good health and wellness.
