What Our Staffs Say
It is a almost a year since i joined TTK for treatment (6/9/2018) and came out as new man. The treatment counseling and lecture classes were excellent and helped me a lot to come out from my alcoholic addiction. My counselor showed a great gesture towards me and my wife. I am leading a Happy
TTK gives a beautiful platform to explore and express one’s professional expertise. This spirit comes from Dr.Shanthi Ranganathan who is a wonderful human being! I feel blessed, indeed to be part of TTK for 16 years now.
When patients get motivated to give up alcohol or drugs and make changes in life, the family members become functional, this in turn contributes to the society’s betterment at large. Being a wholistic approach, all of us take pride and a great sense of achievement in bringing about changes in individuals.
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.
