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 which phase of addiction they have experienced and are in based on the Jellinek Curve. Card activities spur group members to set goals for progressing up the curve into the Rehabilitation and Recovery Phases. 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.
