The Group Recovery Day Programme offers group sessions to help those recovering from drug use to develop structure in their days, learn new things, and understand more about themselves and their drug use. Some of the group sessions on offer include:
- Peer support groups: sessions can include open discussion or a structured theme, and give people an opportunity to share how they are feeling and any concerns they may have. The rest of the group will provide support and understanding, and offer ideas and solutions.
- Recovery groups: these groups will cover a different topic every week, and each topic will have been proven to help people who are in recovery.
- ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) groups: ACT is a modern form of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, based on scientific principles and research. These sessions enable people to develop awareness about their behaviour and its consequences, and encourage sustainable, positive behaviour change.
- Wellbeing or education groups: these structured sessions provide information that will support people in their recovery – for example, sessions might focus on overdose prevention, Hepatitis, sexual health, or understanding addiction.
- Skills groups: developing new skills, or revisiting old ones that have not been used for a while, is a key part of recovery. We provide a range of opportunities including art and IT sessions, and in the future we will run courses that result in an accredited qualification.
- Social groups: building relationships and developing social skills is a key part of recovery, which is why we offer activities including sports, day trips, walks and fishing.
