On Tuesday September 1, Terrence Higgins Trust (THT) is launching a course of workshops for gay men who feel they are losing control when it comes to drugs and/or alcohol. The group will take place each Tuesday for 8 weeks from 6.30 – 9pm in Central London.
The ‘Are you losing control?’ group aims to help people who feel that their drug/alcohol use is having a negative impact on their lives. It is led by expert facilitators who have training to deal with addiction issues.
Gordon Mundie, Group work co-ordinator at THT said “We know that many gay men take drugs and drink alcohol but some feel that what started as fun is out of control. Perhaps they are beginning to feel they need alcohol to have a good time, they feel guilty or ashamed after using or they are only having sex when they are on drugs. If this sounds like it might apply to you, or you are just worried you might have a problem, then this course could help. Please get in touch to find out more.”
The course is aimed at people taking any kind of recreational drugs from alcohol to cocaine, and crystal meth to GHB and ecstasy. Previous participants in the course found it very useful:
– “It was helpful reflecting on the facts in the hard light of day.”
– “I learned how the drug taking is really affecting me.”
– “This has been an amazing experience. Enormous thanks for your effort, time and understanding.”
The workshops are funded by the Pan London HIV Prevention Partnership. For more information, venue details or to book an assessment please call 020 7812 1773 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
