Whether you’re right at the beginning of your journey or you’re wanting to maintain your goals in your recovery, here and now is a place for everybody to come together.

Chemsafe: Monthly group

Last Wednesday of the month 6pm-8pm

This group is a monthly space available both in person and online 

Each session will have a different topic and we will look at sharing helpful information and discussion and support around these topics.

We will cover topics such as; consent, sober sex, harm reduction, online safety and other topics that are identified as relevant.

As with all our groups there will be an element of peer support, here specifically for people who have been or are currently being affected by crystal meth/GBL and other substances relating to chemsex. This group consists of friendly and non-judgmental people who are there to give each other peer-led advice and share experiences to help overcome substance misuse, chemsex triggers and empower each other to reach individual goals whether that be sober sex or a harm reduction route, your journey is yours to make!

LGBT SMART Recovery:

Thursdays, 6pm @ LGBT Foundation & on Zoom

SMART Recovery is a self-management cognitive behavioural therapy recovery program, where you can work with peers in a safe space to learn how to use simple tools to look at motivation, cravings, urges and relapse prevention. SMART tools can help you manage your addictive behaviours and also be used universally in your day-to-day life. This group takes place both online via Zoom (email for access), and in person at our centre: 2nd Floor Fairburn House, Sackville Street, M1 3NJ.
