The LIFE Course
The LIFE course seeks to help clients who are in recovery to develop resilience through the development of practical life skills.  The course aims to increase self-care, improve mental well-being, develop healthy relationships and help clients take steps towards sustainable independent living with meaningful activity.

The LIFE course started in September 2015 and supersedes the LITE course which ran as CCM's life skills course from 1990 to 2014.

What we do
The course contains 5 modules, each one lasting 4 weeks. The modules run on Thursday afternoons from 1pm - 4pm.
  • Module 1: Self-Care
  • Module 2: Positive Thinking
  • Module 3: Healthy Relationships
  • Module 4: Life Management
  • Module 5: Your Story

There will also be a varied Tuesday afternoon program including volunteering, sports activities, games and trips.

The course is an abstinence focused life skills programme aimed at adults (ages 25+) who are in early recovery and have completed a treatment programme. We will consider accepting those who are reducing on a script.

This course is for those who:

  • lack confidence and life skills
  • have been homeless
  • have been in active addiction
  • suffer from mental health problems
  • have a criminal record
  • have been long term under-employed

BUT who want to make life changes and improve their lives.
