Perth Peer Support weekly group meetings are for anyone concerned about the effect that alcohol is having on their lives. It gives people in various stages of recovery a chance to share experiences and support each other. The group is supported by trained counsellors but also led by group members, giving everyone the opportunity to discuss issues important to them.
We currently meet weekly on Tuesdays from 12– 1pm in the TCA Perth office (address below). On the last Tuesday of every month, we have a longer two hour meeting from 12-2pm, which is a structured session for the first hour, offering the group the opportunity to focus on particular topics of their choosing. The second hour will be the peer support element of the meeting.
If you feel that you would benefit from support, whether it be in a group or by talking to a trained counsellor, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We are here to help you!
