The benefit for myself attending the FSG is that I have been able to understand about  my sons addiction. I thought it would have been easy for my son to come off drugs but I realise its not that easy.  If I hadnt gone to the meetings i would never had known.

I have been going to the FSG for more than 2 years, I can share my experiences without feeling judged and it helps me cope with difficult times by speaking it through with other members.  I have attended educational courses which have helped me understand my sons addiction.  i have also learned a lot about myself and my coping skills. We have also have had complimentary therapy sessions which have helped me with my stress levels.  Its nice to have a cuppa with people who understand and care.
