The worksheet below is a rough copy of our Wacky and Wonderful Recovery Pamphlet, “Relapse Prevention Plan.” (This link will take you to the store, where you can download a clean and updated version for free!)
The handout includes 4 pages:
Page 1 is a checklist identifying warning symptoms and triggers, negative effects of drugs/alcohol, and the good stuff about being clean & sober.
Page 2 is about skills and fun, i.e. how to deal with stress and build resilience against cravings. If you haven’t ever searched elgoog.im or done a barrel row with your computer, you’ll have fun with this one.
Page 3, goofy and serious, takes on emergency craving management.
Page 4 offers information about additional ways to strengthen recovery.
Ideally the handout would be filled out in advance, but it can serve as an acute rescue packet too.
Here’s a sneak peak of an old and somewhat fuzzy version from 2019. The plan was last updated 10/10/2020.

Don’t forget to take a look at the (hopefully) upcoming Wacky and Wonderful Workbook for Recovery (WW).
Filled with relapse prevention & coping skills, alter egos, art assignments, fiction-writing, puzzles, and much more, WW takes the reader on a 30-day introductory journey through the world of sobriety. This book is about surviving addiction and creating a life worth living. It’s meant to be the first of a series of similar workbooks.
WW will be available in 2021 or 2022, if we sell enough booklets to show there’s a market. Please help! Check out the other Recovery Booklets now available in the store.
