This is an “alternative” two-page worksheet helping people in recovery maneuver through those difficult moments: cravings, stress, vulnerability.
Page one focuses on identifying warning symptoms and triggers, reviewing negative effects of drugs/alcohol, and the exciting effects of staying clean/sober.
Page two is aimed at urge management.
Ideally the handout would be filled out in advance, but it can serve as an acute rescue packet too. It’s check-list format makes it easier to use during life’s rougher moments.
You can check out an older and somewhat blurry version of the plan here.
This pamphlet is free, as I think it can benefit many people. Download, save it on your computer, and print up as many copies as you’d like.
Ideal for substance abuse counselors to use with clients.
