I exist, therefore I am.
“a NALAM Mobilizer
For seven years, my husband drank a lot and his mental health was badly affected but I dealt with it on my own. I couldn’t tell anyone outside because I felt it would reduce my respect. I brought him to The Banyan four years ago and he has not drunk a single sip since then.
I thought about all the people out there, who like me can’t tell anyone about their situation. I thought that I could share my example and help in some way.
