NO LONGER AVAILABLE. This 14-year-old program is no longer available through Impact Publications. The good news is the availability of a relatively new (2016) and less expensive ($249.00) Hazelden program on the same subject and with an accompanying CD-ROM of 273 pages of instructional materials. Please review and consider acquiring The Relapse Prevention Program: An Evidence-Based Approach (#9370). We believe this is an excellent substitute for this popular yet aging product.

#4045 This three-program DVD, by international recovery and relapse prevention expert Terence Gorski, helps individuals in recovery, as well as clinical staff, deal with the main principles and issues affecting relapse prevention and management.
The programs present the basic principles of relapse prevention, common warning signs that lead from stable recovery to relapse, and how to establish a relapse prevention and relapse management plan.
Each program is broken down into 8-12 minute segments for questions and discussion. All three programs are on one DVD. $300.00 for the DVD.
- Basic Principles (29 minutes)
This first program reviews eight basic principles of relapse prevention. These principles provide a key understanding of the problem of relapse and the steps that are necessary to manage it if it occurs.
- Relapse Warning Signs (33 minutes)
The second program describes the basic progression of relapse warning signs that lead from stable recovery back to addicted use. These basic warning signs have been organized into categories and clarified in ways that make them a powerful tool for relapse prevention.
- Managing Relapse Warning Signs (46 minutes)
The third program explains how to use the relapse warning sign list as a tool for identifying and managing the problems that could lead to relapse. Gorski explains how to review this list and how to select and personalize warning signs that are of personal importance. He then shows viewers how to map out common situations where these warning signs occur, managing these situations in new, more effective ways.
