If you struggle to get to support or recovery groups during office hours...this just might be for you!
We are trialing an additional weekly after-hours session of the MRT group, 6pm to 7:30pm, Thursday evenings at our North Perth office. It is now underway!
MRT is a great option for you if you are seeking to remain stable in your recovery goals. Consider it if you have other work/study/family commitments that are usually a barrier to attending. New consumers and consumers who have previously participated are welcome. Street parking available.
This is a great post considering that I’m very interested in MRT but work long hours.
Eternally grateful for Cyrenian House 🙏
Lady on the right, (won’t say her name) when I first starting going to the groups before treatment she used to sit with me because I was so scared!!! She sat with me and talked to me till the group started!! Such an amazing woman!!
