Being in the mental health and substance abuse field for many years, I am always looking for ways to help find that AH HA moment that will start my clients on the road to recovery. I found this workbook and the exercises extremely helpful. Helping others actually look at high risk situations and helping them to think about how to manage them is crucial to recovery. This work book spells it out without searching for the right steps to discovery. It is clear and builds to a logical conclusion. Nicely done!

This book is very useful and it is effective. I never knew how to teach a relapse prevention class until I purchased this book. It's a great investment for those that are or will be working with the Substance Abuse population.

Being a mental health counselor, I utilize information learned in in this workbook in education programs for clients and their families. Education is so important in recovery and having a plan for relapse is vital. A great tool for anyone in recovery.

Format: Paperback
"Relapse is part of recovery" heard about programs, treatment centers, and 'the rooms' is a excuse used way to many times. Relapse (or a slip ) can be part of early recovery or begining abstance, but not recovery. The original by the original, and still the best. Terrence Gorski is a must read, over and over. I forget about it but always come back to it. Don't wait for a high-risk situation, their ALL high-rish situations. Easy to impiment and evidence-based. Get a copy !

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a parent of an addict, frustrated by the lack of success of repeated high cost residential treatments, I found this to be a good companion to a better discussion of the addicted mind and the recovery process. The discussion deals with the accomplishments of a month long or longer recovery program being limited to bringing the addict to the point of being able to start their rehabilitation. The recovery process begins after they return home or re-enter their normal environment. The discussion deals with their altered mind and brain chemistry, the slow process of changing that chemistry, the capabilities and lack of capabilities the brain possess during an extended period of time (years). The discussion contrasts the actual state of mental capacity with the normal expectations of family, friends and others for those having been "clean" for a month and appearing normal.

I was hoping this was a companion workbook to the author's <I/>Counseling for Relapse Prevention</i>, which was assigned for a CASAC class. It is not a companion book, and as a standalone, it seems out of context with clients who are undergoing substance-abuse recovery. It wasn't expensive, though, so I held onto it. In a program tailored to the book (or vice versa), it might have some use. I'll look at it some more as I get into practical field hours before I disregard it.

Gorski's work is straightforward and effective if used in bits and pieces. I sometimes get the response from my A/D group members that they felt like they were back in High School doing a homework assignment that they hated! Worksheets are practical but dry...
