To access Aurora's therapy services you will need to have experienced abuse/trauma in childhood and be 18 or over. You also need to keep a commitment to your weekly therapy, prioritise your recovery and recognise that hard work and courage is necessary to make progress and heal. Having a drug and/or alcohol addiction will not necessarily preclude you from applying to Aurora but you will need to have at least two years sobriety/abstinence before accessing services at Aurora.
If you feel that Aurora could help you then please do contact us and take that difficult but vital first step. A warm welcome awaits!
