Aftercare is a great group where people in early recovery meet each week to touch base around difficulties, share successes and gain direction, fellowship and support from peers and from the facilitator to reinforce their new way of life.

Running weekly on a Wednesday evening, 7-830pm, Aftercare is facilitated by Louise Perry who has experience and a broad understanding of addiction recovery spanning two decades and is currently training to be a therapist.
Aftercare is an abstinence based group encouraging attendees to be accountable for what they are and are not doing to support their recovery and to work towards their personal goals encouraging them to share their personal experiences as an opportunity to ventilate emotion, reality check, gain support and allow early intervention (i.e. relapse prevention).
Its widely known that a structured aftercare commitment makes all the difference to your success rate of a sustainable and enjoyable new life in recovery – and at Charter we support you to go all the way!
JT (grateful addict – day care)
What makes Charter so special is the way Mandy works with the rest of the team, especially Clare in Tertiary, to create a complete picture of what you need and where you’re at on an almost second by second basis. I felt seen and heard. This made me feel safe enough to get on with the painful risks I needed to take in group to get properly well; the risks I’d spent a whole life avoiding.
ED (wife & mother)
I found the drama triangle and boundary work really useful and consequently I don’t ever feel that I am running on empty. I am kinder to myself. I have the tools now to avoid the pointless circular arguments and accusations that seemed to be an inevitable part of family life, consequently I am happier.
Maggie (Day Care)
Charter gave me my first real glimpse of freedom of my addiction and the will to face another day free of fear. Every single therapist brought their own particular stance into the rooms, and there was as much laughter as tears. We were all led by Mandy Saigari, the bravest and most intuitive people I have ever met. I can only say thank you.
