Addiction is a progressive, chronic, and potentially fatal disease. This card deck (and companion Facilitator Guide) introduces the Phases of Addiction model (The Jellinek Curve), which defines the five phases and associated behaviors through which individuals move toward death (at one extreme) or recovery. The Phases of Addiction model helps you understand the destructive path of addiction and assess where you are on the curve so that you can take action to move toward recovery.
Discovery Cards are simple, practical, impactful, and increase engagement. Using behavior-based and color-categorized cards, individuals will discover which phase of addiction they are in based on the Jellinek Curve. Card activities spur individuals to set goals for progressing up the curve into the Rehabilitation and Recovery Phases. 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, self-discovery, and spark great discussions in recovery group settings. For the best experience, buy a Group Kit, which includes everything you need to run an effective session.
