A Resource for Providers and Clients.

This 20-page booklet is written for addiction counselors to use with clients who are contemplative about quitting. Motivational interviewing, CBT, and psychoeducation meet art & humor.
Ranging from side effects and mortality rates to oddities and cultural mishaps, these T/F quizzes will keep you thinking. Perfect for providers to use with clients or teachers with students.
Artsy fartsy and friendly, this little booklet presents a series of easy exercises to help your client rewrite problem thoughts into healthier alternatives.
Packed with reflections, activities, and a pinch of the unusual, this 29-page booklet will get your clients motivated, thinking, and attending meetings.
Recovery is hard work. This booklet presents handouts to lighten the load, all centered around recovery. They can serve as warm-ups for group therapy or a fun option for homework.
“Like a breath of fresh air, I really enjoyed and appreciated the out of the box approach, as it was quite inventive, memorable, and thought-provoking. I know people who would benefit from sobriety, and as a family physician working in an asylum, I am looking forward to using these worksheet resources in my practice. I recommend this resource for any medical provider and anyone who is seeking help from addiction or knows a loved one who may benefit having this book nearby.” — Lisa Lorelli, DO, Family Physician. Morganton, North Carolina
“I’m a peer support specialist and have worked on my own recovery over the past ten years…. From the jokes to the coloring material, this workbook has the answers to questions that people needing recovery want to ask but hardly ever ask. It has material I have never encountered in a workbook at the 20+ places I’ve been. I believe this book can be very beneficial to those in long-term treatment.” — Nathan Ray, Peer Support Specialist. Morganton, North Carolina
“I have used some of the worksheets from your blog with inpatient clients at the hospital who are in pre-contemplation/contemplation toward addressing their SUD. They have enjoyed the pages and I have found them useful for facilitating conversations to help increase their motivation. I like that your work engages the creative side of the brain and spans appropriate comprehension level of multiple groups.” — Julie Bowers-Pryor, MA, LCSW, LCADC, CSW. University of Kentucky, Kentucky.
