In this supportive video, Robert Meyers and Jane Ellen Smith help people in the recovery process develop the skills necessary to make significant lifestyle changes, as they lead them on a captivating exploration of alternatives to substance use.

For many people in recovery from substance abuse, one of the most challenging aspects of living a sober life is learning how to “fill the void” previously occupied by drugs and alcohol with activities that are pleasurable, healthy and meaningful.
In this supportive video, Robert Meyers and Jane Ellen Smith help viewers and participants develop the skills necessary to make significant lifestyle changes, as they lead them on a captivating exploration of alternatives to substance use.

With the help of a live studio audience of men and women in various stages of recovery, Meyers and Smith take viewers through various exercises and a step-by-step process that focus on helping them restructure their lifestyle and make life without alcohol and drugs not only healthy and satisfying, but also fun.

This video is part of the series 7 Skills for Addiction-Free Living, and is primarily geared towards people in recovery, as well as their family members and loved ones. It is also an excellent resource for educators and trainers in addiction counseling programs, as well as staff at recovery treatment centers. Therapists in private practice will want this in their library to lend to clients struggling with substance abuse.

With the guidance of Robert Meyers and Jane Ellen Smith, viewers will have the opportunity to:

• Brainstorm a list of pleasurable activities that they would like to incorporate into their life
• Rate various areas of their life on a happiness scale and identify steps to increase their happiness
• Learn how to overcome obstacles that might get in the way of making these big lifestyle changes
• Develop the communication skills that will enable them to create a rewarding social life that supports them in their recovery and overall well-being
