Free Recovery Support Groups

 

These groups exist to provide a safe place; a place of community, a place to find relief, rescue and freedom from life's tough issues: loneliness, isolation, addictive behavour and ultimately from hospitalization, criminality and prison, serious self-harm and possibly suicide or death by misadventure and loss of business, work and family break-ups.  This is how important our groups are!

 

 

 

Are you or a friend struggling with life controlling habits and behavour?

 

Are you faced with a life crisis?  

 

Do you want to improve your wellness and being? Do you want to change?

 

Then our support groups might help you find people with similar struggles who are uniting to combat those life debilitating habits and behaviour through shared experiences and wisdom!

 

Our support groups are ‘talking platforms’ where you can learn more about others and yourself as each one explores shared struggles.

 

Our support groups offer Face to Face (adhering to Covid-19 guidelines) and Online opportunities for meeting and discussion.

 

Our support group members share similar life experiences of controlling habits or behaviours, like addictions to gambling, alcohol, drugs, porn and or other emotional controlling feelings like anxiety, self – hatred, fear, etc.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Janet

Free! has changed my life. Being able to be totally open about my sin with people who don't judge you has been very freeing.

Stefan

I found Free! a very safe and helpful first step in taking action against my addiction and selfish behaviours. Building friendship with people who understand and don't judge is invaluable. Thank you.
