Starting Recovery with Relapse Prevention
A Workbook by Terence T. Gorski
Many people mistakenly believe that relapse is an inevitable part of recovery but they’re wrong! Relapse can be prevented. It’s as easy as adding some special skills to the recovery tool kit. Relapse prevention methods have become widely accepted and effective.
However, two mistaken beliefs about relapse prevention persist in the mind of people. The first is that relapse prevention needs to come at the end of initial treatment; and the second is that relapse prevention should be reserved only for people who have attempted recovery and returned to addictive use. This workbook is designed to challenge these mistaken beliefs.
