“I have enjoyed 2 days of this session and have more understanding of how the Integrated Step Course training sessions map into the 12 Steps. It has been a pleasure to share the powerful strength within the room of recovery and see the hope and possibilities of how the programme can help those on a pathway to individual recovery. Love the evidence evident in trusting the process which incorporates so much"
