Frequently asked questions
Do I have to appear on camera?
You don’t have to appear on camera. Meetings are conducted using a combination video (optional), voice and the chat box feature. You can register for various different online meeting times below.
Can I attend for any addiction?
Yes. Our meetings focus on the BEHAVIOURS, and not the substance – meaning they are suitable for any problematic or addictive behaviour – including alcohol, drugs, gambling, as well as eating disorders.
What happens in a meeting?
The group lasts 90 minutes and there are no breaks. It is a mutual-aid interactive group where people are all there to help themselves and help each other. People report back on how their last week has been, discuss the agenda item they have put forward and what their plans are for the coming week. The SMART Recovery tools are taught and used during the meeting.
Do I have to pay?
No. Our meetings are completely free.
Are the meetings available on mobile?
Our online meetings are best accessed via laptop or desktop computers. As well as using audio, the meetings encompass a text chat box feature that isn’t visible for mobile and tablet users. If the facilitator needs to mute everyone’s audio, the chat box is the only way to communicate – which means mobile phones are unable to participate. If you must attend using your mobile phone, please ensure there is no background noise.
Can treatment professionals sit in on meetings as observers?
Treatment professionals are asked to please email the meeting contact that appears following
registration to seek permission before sitting in on a meeting as an observer.
