Scottish Veterans battle the heat
On the hottest day of the year, five Veterans attended SMART’s facilitator training course in Edinburgh. Over two days they covered all aspects of SMART’s 4-point programme and facilitating meetings. All five passed with flying colours; congratulations to Chris, Gordon, James, Paul and Rob. As Johnny Allison, Veterans Coordinator commented
‘I can’t put into words just how amazing this is to see five Veterans who came to SMART not wanting to talk or even know what it was they were turning up to, train to become facilitators.
Seeing one person change by applying the SMART Recovery program to their life is amazing. To see five Veterans in stable recovery from a range of behaviours, ranging from substance abuse to mental health issues using the program and working with the tools is brilliant. To see them becoming part of a group and willing to help other veterans is just mind blowing.’
Our Online Saturday Meeting at 5.30pm has been postponed. We hope that this will return again in August.
