TOPIC: Stages Of Change in Addiction Recovery — What phase am I in?
Change is the ultimate goal in recovery, but our mindsets and addictive behaviors tend to resist it even when we experience significant consequences. This card deck (and companion Facilitator Guide) introduces the Stages of Change model, the leading behavioral theory of change. It will help you assess where you are in your own change process and help you take steps to move to the next stage. Getting on a different path is not easy, but there can be no true recovery without meaningful change.
Facilitator Guide — An essential companion to the Discovery Cards, the Facilitator Guide provides group leaders with everything needed to run structured, stage matched 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 which stage they are in based on the Prochaska and DiClemente Stages of Change model. Card activities spur group members to set goals for progressing through stages, and uncover potential pitfalls to avoid. Discovery Cards increase engagement, participation, and 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.
