Welcome to
MUSKAN FOUNDATION- Serving The Nation

Attitude of Gratitude

Dear Dr. Kanchan Kapur and Dr. Bharat Bhushan
,

It is a great pleasure for me to introduce myself as a victim of the disease so called alcoholism, having undergone the treatment rendered by your organization MUSKAN FOUNDATION in the year of 2007. I was desperately waiting for nothing short of death and was ready to accept it when I was admitted in. Financial, social, spiritual and psychological death had already taken place and physical death beared no consequence to me.

I am 29 years old man. I took my first drink of alcohol at the age of 10 years, when I was a class 5th student. I remained an alcoholic for the following 12 years. My drinking began at home, where alcohol was readily available, due to my father also being an alcoholic. By the age of 22 years, I was what you would classify as a chronic alcoholic, experiencing all the losses that go hand in hand with such a condition, particularly financial loss and a rapid decline in social status. By this time, my family was also suffering terribly because of me.

I live in CHANDOSHI, MURADABAD , UP, which is some 200km away from Delhi, National Capital Territory. Chandoshi happen to be the No-1 market for Methanol in Asia.

I have 2 sisters, but am the only son of my parents. My father used to run a small cosmetic shop in our home town of Chandoshi.

In 2004, at the height of my alcoholism, my family took the decisions to admit me to MUSKAN FOUNDATION, Drug De-addiction & Alcoholic Rehabilitation Centre in Dwarka, New Delhi. Here, I received an intensive & holistic residential treatment program for my alcoholism and thereafter was able to be re-integrated into my family and society as a whole.

Subsequently, coming into recovery, I looked after our cosmetic shop along with my father. In April 2005, my father pass away, living me shattered with sorrow and grief. At this point of time, my chance of relapse into alcoholism was very high. How ever, by the grace of God and appreciation of what I had learned in Therapeutic Community Treatment Program, I manage to save my recovery.

Since then, within my recovery from alcoholism, I have managed to greatly increase business at our cosmetics shop and have also even started a whole-sale ready-made garments shop. This has lead to a vast improvement in my financial and social status.

On World Health Day, earlier this year, in April 2011, MUSKAN FOUNDATION, the Organization responsible for bringing me into recovery celebrated my 7th Alcohol free Birth Day with great pomp and show. For which I am highly grateful & oblised.

I would like to pay my special thanks to the efforts you and your team to change the life of an animal into a human being. I will always be ready to help MUSKAN FOUNDATION in order to help the people who are still in clutches of this disease.
