Finding your way

The aim of SHARP is to give clients the necessary skills to live happy and productive lives in the community. In order to facilitate the transition from institution to normal living, clients are allowed to leave the Centre for several hours a week. During this time out they are required to establish connections with recovering addicts in the community and to work on their often damaged relationships with family. They are also encouraged to explore hobbies, part-time work or study opportunities. A carefully planned schedule is drawn up each week to facilitate this process and avoid boredom or last-minute planning.
