Uses the Drivers of Substance Use Model
TOPIC: Drivers of Substance Use — Why do I drink or use?
Learning why we drink or use can often help us better understand our behavior and build healthier coping strategies. This card deck (and companion Facilitator Guide) highlights common drivers of substance use and will help you identify the ones that may drive you. Understanding what motivates you to drink or use can help you find healthier behaviors. Gaining support from family and friends can also help you avoid and address these underlying challenges.
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 factors start or drive substance use. 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.
