TOPIC: Relapse Phases & Warning Signs — Am I on a path toward relapse?
Relapse 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 relapse. 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.
Facilitator Guide — An essential companion to the Discovery Cards, the Facilitator Guide provides group leaders with everything needed to run structured, action-oriented sessions, including activity worksheets, and coaching tips. Discovery Cards are simple, practical, and impactful and increase engagement. Using behavior-based color-coded categorized cards, group members will self-discover what phase of relapse they are in based on the warning signs they are experiencing. Discovery Cards increase engagement, participation, and self-discovery and spark great discussions in recovery group settings.
