This Relapse Prevention Therapy Workbook is designed for people in recovery from alcohol or other drug addiction who have a history of relapse, or are currently afraid they might relapse. There continues to be confusion and misunderstanding about what relapse is and how it happens. In this workbook, Terry Gorski and Steve Grinstead clarify their definition of relapse, how it happens, and most importantly how to prevent a person from entering the relapse cycle.
For several years, Gorski and Grinstead have been co-teaching, modifying the process, and field testing all of the exercises contained in this newly revised, simplified, and updated version of Relapse Prevention Therapy. If a person is willing to be open and honest as well as actively complete each of the fourteen developmental exercises in this workbook, they may never have to experience the pain of relapse again.
