#3034. Sponsored by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, this award-winning (Silver Apple and New York International Film Festival) five-DVD relapse prevention series equips ex-offenders with eight key relapse prevention skills. Includes how to deal with frustration and chronic stress, and resist the lure of “easy money” and the street life.
Covers many key issues: the first weeks home, dealing with old friends, handling “get-high buddies,” dealing with dysfunctional families, sexual triggers, stress of parenting, coping with emotional “danger zones” in early recovery, including anger, shame, guilt, and self-pity, and much more.
Shows how to “take back your dreams” and achieve goals related to work, money, school, and fun.
This program was screened by hundreds of streetwise recovering addicts just prior to their release who rated it a 4.7 on a scale of 1 to 5. Many said these were the first tapes they’d seen about their lives! Make sure your institution has this powerful set of videos that can literally change the lives of former addicts who may be in danger of relapsing on the outside.
Includes a free 170-page Counselor’s Guide (contains 43 activities with reproducible worksheets, 98 suggested questions for leading discussions about each tape, and a useful bibliography). Can also customize the program for teens. Approximately 38-40 minutes each.
