What do we do?


We bring together a multitude of cultures and philosophies, by doing this we hope to create a neutral environment where a new culture can develop. 


Through collaboration and leadership, The Friday Group showcases how peer and clinical support can complement each other. 


Over the one and a half hours the group starts by having lunch and a meet and greet. This is followed by a 40-minute education/discussion group to develop coping strategies and plans for safe/no alcohol and drug use. We also include topics about relapse prevention, mood management, drink driving etc. To finish off we have an informal half an hour for refreshments and to discuss safe behaviors for the weekend.
