"I knew I had to change, but meeting you has made me want to change." George

"There was an initial kick start for change in group, then acknowledging the problem, asking the hard questions, confronting the problem, and making a plan to avoid drinking and driving." Patrick

"The tutors were very professional. They have it sorted and can read client’s needs and challenge when necessary. The course has enabled me to open up to the problem I have and voice what I am feeling." James
