Is it time for a change? This evidence-based workbook will help you reevaluate your relationship with addictive substances, and offers a powerful alternative to "abstinence-only" approaches.

Do you feel like you're drinking too much or using too much, but you don't necessarily want to give it up for good? A powerful alternative to "abstinence-only" approaches, the "harm reduction" model outlined in this evidence-based workbook draws on practices from motivational interviewing (MI) to help you explore your relationship with substance abuse, and find the motivation needed to create an individualized recovery plan.

In The Harm Reduction Workbook for Addiction, you'll find skills-based exercises to help you focus on self-reflection; identify your strengths; discover common "life themes," values, and goals; and explore different reasons you may have for change. Most importantly, you'll find the tools needed to create your own "action plan" for moving forward and changing your relationship to substances.

This workbook will help you:

  • Explore your relationship to substance abuse
  • Identify your strengths, values, and goals
  • Find your own motivations to change

Change doesn't have to happen overnight--it can happen at your own pace. If you're ready to transform your relationship with addictive substances and change your life for the better, this workbook can help you get started now.
