The “Abstinence Group” is the recovery phase of the TBRP Recovery Programme:
Is a twenty-four session rolling programme which you enter following the Pre-Recovery or Detoxification phase.
Now that the physical dependency of your addiction has been addressed we take an in-depth look at the mental and emotional aspects.
You must be abstinent from both alcohol and drugs by this stage and willing to undergo random testing.
During the sessions, we will explore the concepts of Recovery in depth. You will be shown how to develop your own Recovery ‘tool box’ of strategies to prevent ‘relapse’ and a supporting network of other people in Recovery. It will be reinforced that this is a ‘we’ process – “only you can do it, but you can’t do it alone”.
You will learn to be more aware of and accept your feelings and emotions and to act on them in more constructive ways. We practice this in Here and Now groups.
You will continue to have weekly one-to-one meetings with your Recovery Coach, attend Here and Now groups, AA/NA, SMART Recovery and other Recovery activities.
*There is a weeks break between each abstinence programme. Check with the office for more details.
Abstinence Group is a Closed Group.
