Communication will be sensitive, respectful and without judgement. Every member has a right to their own opinion. Inappropriate language, insults or threatening remarks will not be tolerated.

 

3. Self Determination

Members understand and respect that each person is an individual at different stages of their healing journey. Each member is to be allowed to find their own path to recovery without feeling pressured or intimidated. This includes their level of participation in the group.

 

4. Personal Messages

Any breach of the rules will result in removal from the group. No discussion will be entered into and Admin’s decision will be final.
