I'm a bit scared to go to my first meeting. Any suggestions?
Yes, give us a call or and we can arrange to have someone meet you, so that you'll at least know someone when you come.
Are there rules?
We operate on the principle of respect, for ourselves, other and the group. In practical terms, that means, no drugs or alcohol, aggressive behaviour or hate. We want this to be a safe place to explore who you are and who you want to become, that means, who you see, and what is said at group, stays at group.
