Evidenced-Based Model: Uses the Gorski Relapse Model of Addiction Recovery – 11 Relapse Phases with 49 specific Warning Signs
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.
Discovery Cards are simple, practical, and impactful and increase engagement. Using behavior-based color-coded categorized cards, individuals will self-discover what phase of relapse they are in based on the warning signs they are experiencing. 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, and self-discovery and spark great discussions in recovery group settings. For the best experience, buy a Group Starter Kit, which includes everything you need to run an effective session.
