Uses the Substance Use Self-Assessment Model
TOPIC: Substance Use Self-Assessment — Do I have a problem?
Admitting we have a problem with substance use is the first step in recovery. This card deck (and companion Facilitator Guide) will help you look at your drinking or using patterns, potential addiction indicators, manageability strategies, consequences, and physical withdrawal symptoms. Understanding and admitting that you have a problem can be the catalyst to seeking help. There are a great variety of resources available for treatment and recovery.
Discovery Cards are simple, practical, and impactful and increase engagement. Using color-coded categorized cards, individuals will explore whether they think they have a problem with alcohol or drug use. The Facilitator Guide provides group leaders with everything needed to run structured, action-oriented sessions, including activity worksheets, and coaching tips. Discovery Cards increase engagement, participation, and self-discovery and spark great discussions in recovery group settings. For the best experience, buy a Group Starter Kit, which includes everything you need to run an effective session.
