Chemcheck is a new initiative combining the experience & knowledge from the teams at Antidote, Lifeline’s After Party service & Burrell St Sexual Health Service.

The group is aimed at people looking at how they can take steps to ensure greater control over their use & would like to explore some of those issues which could potentially lead to more problematic use.

 

What does it involve?

 

Chemcheck is a group programme which runs over 6 weeks on Tuesday evenings from 18.00 until 19.30.  We will explore a series of subjects which will help you to understand and explore issues such as:

 

  • Making changes
  • Self Esteem & Confidence
  • Sex & Sexuality
  • Relationships & intimacy
  • Negotiating boundaries
  • Relaxation & stress management

 

Chemcheck is an opportunity for you to explore your attitudes & behaviours in relation to chem use in a safe, supportive space. To ensure that you get the most out of the programme it’s advisable that you commit to all 6 sessions.
