As a result of attending the group, I have more understanding of my substance use, past and present. Today I believe recovery is manageable and it is my choice to manage my recovery. I plan to continue to utilize the Butterflies group material as a resource when I leave group. The group facilitators helped me understand about substance use and recovery. The group facilitators supported me as a person and my goals.
Common Suggestions on Improvements Do not feel safe/ comfortable when different people are coming and going. Can there be an open group and a closed group. Enjoyed the group but sometimes feel rushed…not enough time. Wish we could start earlier and go longer Would like a sign put up not to interrupt the group when MSP opens it doesn’t make me feel safe or comfortable when people keep peeking in and disturbing the group. Future groups should be closed..I don’t feel safe when there are new people all the time. Provide more follow up for group members who miss a session. Try to stay more on topic. Group should be restricted to women dealing with an addiction. Time change maybe starting at 4:30-6:00.
