The GEMS programme is a 10 week course aim at educating, motivating, and supporting people who are struggling with addiction- whether it is alcohol, drugs or gambling.
We try to make the course as positive an experience as we can; it is about looking forward and finding a better future rather than dwelling in the past. The course offers positive and practical advice about bringing changes into your life and how to find the motivation to continue building on that change.
The groups are inter-active which I think is important. All who attend have both something to offer the group as well as something to take from it. All have a voice, although we respect one another's privacy and no-one is forced to speak if they feel unable to do so. Above all, we recognise the strength and courage it has taken to get to this point, and we want to find a way for you to continue your journey.
