Return to substance use often appears to happen suddenly, but there are usually plenty of warning signs. This card deck (and companion Facilitator Guide) introduces the Gorski model of relapse phases and warning signs. The model highlights 10 progressive emotional and mental states that occur on the path toward substance use. Awareness of warning signs allows for proactive planning and action, which may include avoiding triggers or devising alternative ways of coping that don't include drinking or using.
