Fast Forward 2 – Easy Exit

Due to the outstanding success of our Fast Forward group, we would like to introduce our next chapter – Easy Exit.

So, I hear you say what are these two groups, and what is the difference between them?

FAST FORWARD will remain in its current state of play. Client attending should meet the following criteria:

  • Clients moving towards ending their counselling sessions.
  • Clients who have achieved or working towards their goals of controlled drinking or abstinence.
  • Clients who find endings difficult.

What do we do at FAST FORWARD?

  • A dedicated 8-week therapeutic programme looking at lapse/relapse.
  • Tools workshops where we discuss various tools the clients can use to help prevent lapse.
  • Building a sense of common experiences, albeit different stories, examining the similarity of addictions.
  • Identifying and exploring triggers, coping strategies and group resilience building.


This group offers peer support at the end of the 8-week Fast Forward programme, ran on a drop-in basis should clients want to attend. It is a perfect fit for those who have completed the FF programme of 8 weeks, or any clients who you feel have attained their goal of abstinence. The group is primarily around maintenance and ensuring individuals have somewhere to go to talk about any struggles they may be experiencing, share good practice and self-care tips.

As the name suggests it is intended to be a pathway towards exiting the use of the FASS/ADAPT service without the pressure of a countdown to the end of FF groupwork.

What do we do at EASY EXIT?

  • Primarily a maintenance group aimed at people exiting Fast Forward.
  • Client who has been abstinent consistently, yet still struggle to exit the therapy setting.
  • Peer support work, working in an environment that nurtures responsibility, autonomy, and sustainable abstinence.
  • A group which encourages the forming and bonding of peer support into friendships and mutual support.
  • Reducing feelings of feeling “alone” and isolated.
