Each meeting is guided by a trained facilitator. Meetings are conducted using a combination video (optional), voice and the chat box feature.

Frequently asked questions
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 are unable to participate. If you must attend using your mobile phone, please ensure there is no background noise.
If you require proof of meeting attendance, please email the meeting contact email or firstname.lastname@example.org
You will be provided with an email that confirms the meeting you attended, as well as the amount of time you attended for.
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.
