2 July 2017, Rumah Pengasih Kuala Lumpur – At Rumah Pengasih one often hears the term The Power of Sharing and Sharing is Caring over and over again. Residents are encouraged to talk about their past, troubles and concerns as it helps alleviate the burden and shame of those experiences.
Most session at Rumah Pengasih have an element of sharing. This can be observed in Morning Meeting’s, Wrap-Up’s, Static Group’s and One-to-One’s.
In recovery, we need the support of each another.
Sharing is cathartic. In order for others to help, one must be open and accepting of themselves and others.
There is no doubt that festivities are a stressful time for those in recovery. After Hari Raya there is a special Wrap-Up Perdana for residents to share their feelings of celebrating Hari Raya in recovery.
Wrap-up Perdana is held on the immediate Sunday after Hari Raya in lieu of Weekend Wrap-Up.
This year saw many residents speaking about celebrating their first sober Hari Raya.
Some were disappointed that they couldn’t celebrate Hari Raya with their families back home however were glad that their families took the effort to visit them here.
The Wrap-Up which was facilitated by Hafizi Harun and Azhar Rahman came to a close at 11:00 pm.
