We at Higher Power Foundation help people transform their lives by providing the highest quality de-addiction treatment and continuing care-services in a safe, serene and comfortable homely environment. We offer a comprehensive approach to the recovery process through the universal 12-Step program. We address the full range of patient, family and professional needs including treatment and continuing care for youth and adults. Our goal is to help people reclaim their lives from the disease of addiction, thus becoming responsible and productive members of society again.
The goal of any addiction treatment program is to build a sustainably responsible individual, who having overcome the powerlessness of his addiction now needs to deal with the harsh reality of existing without dependence on any mind altering substance. Our excellent Staff-to-Client ratio is focused towards this goal in not only unshackling one from the grips of addiction but also ensuring an accountability ethos built on spiritual grounds.
Every addict/alcoholic seeks freedom but is unwilling to pay the price associated with it. It’s only When he is able to seek and find identification with fellow sufferers that does he realize that freedom from drugs/alcohol and personal freedom though seemingly different, doesn’t have to be. The freedom from pain that he so longs for becomes a reality as he learns to live life on life’s terms. As the addict/alcoholic gets unshackled from the chains of bondage to their substances they desire the freedom known only to those who are willing to walk along a spiritual path. An awakening and enabling of this desire is a goal at HPF

Lucio, resident of calangute Goa, had been using heroin for the last 26 years. I grew up with a lot of western influence so this was one of the main reasons to get into drugs. Prior to this I tried to stop many times with the help of hospitals, religious institutions or even abroad but to no avail. I always believed in substitute drugs for me I used them for some time but gradually returned back to the drug of my choice that is heroin. I lost on many opportunities in life good jobs in India and abroad lost respect in society and so on. Finally beaten black and blue I landed in HIGHER POWER FOUNDATION which taught me that I had a living problem and showed me the way to deal with my addictive personality. A lot of support and strength from the counselors has kept me smooth and clean and still going strong. I am grateful to HIGHER POWER FOUNDATION as it has helped me change my life. I now strongly believe I have a reason to live a positive life full of growth.- Mr. Lucio
I have been drinking for 30 years from the age of 15. What seemed fun during these years ended in absolute disaster after having had many rock bottoms, the worst of which was in January 2008. No money, no food and no shelter! For the first time in my life I cried on my knees to God for help. Being a merciful God who works miracles through people I came as a patient to HPF. I went through a tough recovery program for three and a half months and this time the inner desire to stay stopped remains within me on a daily basis. I remind myself of where I came from and even though I am facing the open, difficult and on-going life on my own. I am blessed to get my family back, a job, house, peace of mind and a lot of other gifts in recovery. This is true happiness for me and I put in a lot of efforts to practice the program on a day-to-day basis.- Mr. Tony Correia
After 10 years using alcohol as a booster to handle my life, thoughts of suicide and a broken marriage, I was totally emotionally shattered and came first as a tourist to HPF, to check out the place, have a taste of what it felt to be off alcohol for a while. I stayed for 10 days, went back to Goa, relapsed and returned, but this time with a strong determination to make it. I was in the programme, and honestly worked all the 12 steps in the last one year of my sober time and have come to terms with my “disease” and my life. The walk of life without the crutch of alcohol has not been an easy one for me, as i live in Goa the hub of drugs and alcohol, have a high flying life style, and- Ms. DEBORAH (Debbie)
