The Recovery Basics Group is the first part of the 32 sessions TBRP Freedom Programme (sessions 1 – 8):
Recovery Basics Phase
During this phase, you will be supported to reduce your alcohol/drug and to help prepare for medical detoxification if this is necessary.
Eight group sessions cover; an introduction to the nature of addiction, why we do what we do and why we can’t seem to stop, dealing with the triggers and cravings that keep us on that downward spiral and an understanding of how and why you have arrived at a recovery hub along with other people just like you.
We will look at the meaning of ‘detox’ and its function, not as a magic wand to ‘treat’ addiction, but as the first step to Recovery. We will then start planning for life immediately after detox.
Where appropriate you will be encouraged to attend AA/NA, SMART Recovery and Here and Now group meetings as well as other Recovery activities and social events.
