TOPIC: Family Courage — What can I learn from others?
The family, friends, and loved ones of those experiencing substance use disorder are an integral part of recovery. This card deck (and companion Facilitator Guide) highlights a variety of thoughts and sayings common among support groups. It is designed to help the personal recovery process of both the substance abuser and of the family, friends, and loved ones. We encourage you to talk openly about them with others to gain even greater support.
Facilitator Guide — An essential companion to the Discovery Cards, the 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. This deck will help family members explore the thoughts and wisdom of others who have family members in recovery. Discovery Cards increase engagement, participation, and self-discovery and spark great discussions in recovery group settings.
