Welcome to T.T.K Hospital

T.T.K Hospital was born from Dr. Shanthi Ranganathan’s foresight and determination.

Her vision of giving a new life to thousands of individuals affected by addiction and rebuilding their broken families became a reality due to the generosity and support of the TTK Group of Companies. The TT Ranganathan Clinical Research Foundation, had its beginnings in 1980 as a day care centre for treating alcoholics. In 1989, the therapeutic services were extended to drug dependent persons as well.

Being a wholistic approach, all of us take pride and a great sense of achievement in bringing about changes in individuals.

Senior Counsellor

I started going to AA meetings, took a sponsor, and worked the 12 steps of our AA programme. Though I shifted base to Mumbai in 2002- almost every year I used to visit TTK and meet all those who helped me in this journey. Though through AA you maintain sobriety, one cannot forget the base.


Today after 30 years of close association with TTK as a Life time volunteer, due to Shanthi Ranganathan’s tireless efforts in using and channelizing all my potential for good writing. I could help TTK to create a wide repertoire of publications consisting of Professional manuals, books and booklets.
