GROW groups vary in size and average 3 to 9 people. Meetings are held weekly, day or night, lasting two hours and are followed by refreshments.
Meetings follow a structured format, beginning with a quiet reflection. They combine personal testimonies, reports on progress, group work on members’ problems and adult education about rebuilding lives. Friendships are formed with the common goal to get well and stay well and it is ordinary between meetings to keep in touch through sociable phone calls or visits.
