My Ongoing Recovery Experience – Workbook 1 – The Basics
Workbook 1 of 3
Most addiction relapses occur within the first eighteen months of recovery, with most happening within the first six months after an individual leaves treatment. Research conducted by the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation suggests that if individuals remain abstinent for at least one year after treatment, they have a better chance of staying sober for the rest of their lives.
My Ongoing Recovery Experience (MORE) is an award-winning, evidence-based online program created by the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation in 2006 to support program participants in the critical months after treatment and move them toward effective self-management. This print adaptation of the online program uses core education, guidance, and skill-building activities to help participants succeed in initiating and sustaining recovery.
Workbook One helps clients build a stable lifestyle to support recovery. Starting with the basics, it includes lessons on how to make a safe living environment and create healthy daily routines. It also covers lessons on the Twelve Steps, the importance of going to meetings, and how a sponsor can help with recovery. Readers will learn about powerlessness as the foundation of Step One, relapse basics, the warning signs of relapse, how to create a relapse prevention plan, and how to deal with a relapse if it does happen.
