So what is a CAP Release Group ?

It's a warm and welcoming environment where people listen to other people who may have similar struggles and share experiences if they want to. It's for people of all ages who want to give up a habit or overcome a dependency. The group form a community who meet weekly for support, food and fellowship. During the Release Group, there is an 8 week course that enables individuals to tackle some of the root issues that may be causing dependency so that they can live a happier, more fulfilling life. The course based on the 12 steps of recovery and each session works through these steps alongside exercises. Also informal one-to-one coaching is available from dedicated coaches who will listen and encourage people on their journey to freedom.

So if you know of anyone who would benefit from joining this group, whatever type of addiction they have, please ask them to ring us 07380387615.
