The Primary Treatment Education Programme (PTE) is a twelve week group which takes place on Wednesdays 2.15pm - 4.00pm. It provides education on the following: 

The goal of the group is (1) to enable participants increase their awareness, and obtain greater calrity and understanding of their relationship with alcohol, other mood altering substances and addictive behaviours. (2) Instil hope and encouragement by providing them with a pathway to address this relationship when it has become problematic. (3) Provide participants with knowledge that will assist them to engage more effectively in individual counselling and other groups that they may attend at Stanhope Centre.
