We are a new form of mutual aid that originates in the UK, based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Starting from Portsmouth in 2007, we are now recognised as an empirically supported model by Public Health England, along with SMART and the 12 step fellowships. It works by focusing on behaviour, and the whole model can be learned in under 10 minutes (see video).
The meetings are based on the idea that if you practice it will work, and if you don’t it won’t. It is a scientific approach which does not require you to believe in anything, or to be a rocket scientist. It is simple to learn and only requires hard work for you to succeed.
