Should I sign up for the Community Groups ?
Community Group is a part of the overall ReStart process. It is highly recommended that you attend a CG after the conference. Although each section of our curriculum is covered at the conference, the CG meetings allow a much more deeper dive into the material, and allows us to get to know each of your unique needs.
Community Group sessions generally start a few weeks after the conference, and we typically run 3 groups: Mount Pleasant, Summerville, and West Ashely so its geographically convenient. The CG meets every other week for 8 sessions. During the CG, the group often become an additional resource to one another, where friendships start, and a feeling of “community” You are not alone in this journey. A schedule is updated and posted on our website for your convenience.
