Learn By Doing
There is no doubt that the hands-on learning in-centre offers the best access to a learning environment.
However, in times where access to the centre is not possible then it is important to keep abreast of learning by accessing online materials and resources.
This site offers a facility where you can do just that.

AA Big Book Free – For Alcoholics Anonymous
24 Hours a day
SoberTool is a fast, free, and effective tool to help you stay clean and sober.
Developed by a Harvard educated licensed chemical dependency and certified alcoholism and drug counselor, this app is for recovering Alcoholics and Addicts and anyone who wants to stay clean and sober or free from a bad habit. It gives you free, immediate help at your fingertips.
Cravings can attack unexpectedly, and sometimes you cannot reach anyone, but you can always touch your smart phone, tablet, or other device. If you get the urge to relapse, just touch this app and you will see a message to help you stop craving and deal with the specific issue that is causing your craving. You should also use this app each day even if you do not feel like relapsing. Just touch a question on the main page, and follow along for a helpful message relevant to issues that you are currently experiencing. You can also opt for congratulatory rewards and automatic daily messages./span>
Nomo - Sobriety Clocks
Nomo can be a great tool for people who are supporting someone through recovery. The clock function can mark emotional turning points, and you have the choice of sharing any feelings of fear, joy, or shame that you are experiencing in the “encouragement” section of the app, which helps you feel less alone in your recovery.
Key features include:
Your own sobriety clock, which helps you easily track your days in sobriety.
Ability to share your sobriety clock with people who are supporting your recovery, such as friends, family, partners, coaches, or counselors.
Ability to message an accountability partner if you are feeling triggered to use.
There is also a “distraction” feature that serves as a simple refocusing tool to help give you strength during a moment of weakness.
A useful feature of rTribe is that you can actually pinpoint what times of day you are particularly triggered to use substances. This can help you come up with a relapse prevention plan and figure out how to plan around these triggers. You can take a quick test to estimate your addiction severity, and the app will provide you with recommendations on your recovery plan. The app also features blogs and a few self-help videos that provide more information about addiction.
You can also check in to activities such as 12-step meetings, outpatient treatment, group therapy, church, or one-on-one meetings with a coach or sponsor. The app includes a list of “clarity routines” that you can mark off throughout your day. Some clarity routines include spending time doing something creative, visiting the doctor, exercising, journaling/writing, listening to music, spending time in nature, and much more. If you’re feeling really down, you can use the “SOS” feature to get extra support when you need it the most.
When you first download the app, you can select whether you want to manage your own recovery or be a supporter of someone else’s recovery. This is a great option for sponsors, coaches, friends, family, and coaches.

Elements in Drawing
You will probably find this activity most interesting, and people of all ages can try it out. The aim is to use your observational skills and explore spatial relations, forms and negative spaces.
We have referred to the Camera Obscura in our Drawing classes. Here you can build a simple camera and test out the way it works.
In this current global crisis, we may be feeling anxious and unmoored. Many people find it easier to cope with this uncertainty by keeping busy, others may find solace in the opposite, using this ‘downtime’ to withdraw and reset.
