ONE LOVE YOGA RETREAT
Long Bay, Portland, Jamaica
I am the mother of a 24 year old addict. I met Anjali through family friends, and had many reservations as I was so confident that my case is hopeless and no one can really help me.I was pleasantly surprised in my interaction with Anjali. She patiently understood my situation, strengthened my resolve to help my son, and had a complete plan of guidelines and treatment options, that surprised me totally.
I would like to say that Anjali is a focused, informed and compassionate person who can help guide anyone seeking help, be it the patient or the family members that need guidance.
I highly recommend that such people contact Anjali and let her direct you through all the steps required to be followed to help any desperate situation.
