Description

PGF Services offers support groups in some locations. 

These support groups are for people who would like to work towards and maintain being 'gamble free'. Significant others are also welcome. The meetings have a semi-structured group format. The facilitators lead the group in a learning activity and support the group to remain focussed and supportive of one another.

A testimonial from one of the attendees at the support group…
"The PGF Auckland Support and Maintenance Group has been instrumental in keeping me gamble free. It is the sharing, vigorous discussions and exercises that I have found to be most helpful in fostering and maintaining my strength and determination to abstain. The group is run by a small dedicated and compassionate team of counsellors who facilitate each meeting providing a fertile ground for learning and growing by all participants be they in a time of need or in a period of abstinence wishing to further strengthen their resolve and pass on their experiences.

May I take this opportunity to thank you all for your support and guidance over the years".
