In the eyes of many, addiction is a problem that has no cure. Anyone that has a significant problem with alcohol and drugs will always have to work hard to stay clean by continually reflecting on their behaviours, thinking patterns and dealing with difficult situations and emotions.
PCP deems aftercare as one of its most important services, by giving people that have gone through the programme the chance to come back to PCP to meet with their counsellor and peers and talk about how their recovery is going.
PCP provides free aftercare services for as long as you require them. This consists of weekly group therapy and ongoing telephone support.
Aftercare groups take place as follows:
Luton: Every Thursday 2-3.15pm
Chelmsford: Every Thursday 2-3.15pm
Leicester: Every Thursday 2-3.15pm
London: All day on a Thursday
All ex-residents are also welcome to volunteer at the clinic as a ‘Peer Mentor’ so that they can share their experience and understanding to support new people in treatment.
