Shirvington M. A. Hannays's Groups

REBT Relapse Prevention Support Group

In light of COVID-19, we have moved our ongoing support group sessions online. JOIN this REBT (Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy) four (4) sessions, group @ www.change-clinic.ca. We understand that Relapse happens OFTEN during RECOVERY. The relapse rate is higher for ALCOHOL, heroin, and METH because the COMPULSIVE and IMPULSIVE behaviour RE-ENFORCE the ADDICTIVE (loss of CONTROL and USING MORE to get the same effect or HIGH) behaviours. Which lower their chances of returning to the recovery path and learn from the LAPSE. LEARN about ASSOCIATING Cues, SELF-Defeating THINKING, and CRAVINGS Hijacking. www.change-clinic.ca

More about this group

Motivating a Love One to Consider Treatment

In light of COVID-19, we have moved our ongoing support group sessions online. JOIN this REBT (Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy) four (4) sessions, group @ www.change-clinic.ca. You can not get someone to stop a behaviour by telling them to stop, especially substance abuse of chemical dependency. Motivation and planned Intervention is needed and is a structured process. The more COMPULSIVE and IMPULSIVE behaviours are, REPEATING that behaviour RE-ENFORCES and STRENGTHENS that behaviour keeping the cycle of the addictive or compulsive BEHAVIOUR. Educate and Empower yourself in your desire to STAGE an Intervention with your Love one.
