As many as half of all people who arrive at mental health clinics or addiction treatment facilities have co-occurring disorders. These clients need effective, integrated care for both their disorders--and they need guidance in preventing relapse and developing the skills necessary to maintain healthy, balanced lives. With the Recovery Life Skills Program, professionals have access to a unique, in-depth group curriculum for working with mentally ill clients ready to move on from substance use and improve their quality of life. Developed by Lindy Fox, MA, LADC of the Dartmouth Psychiatric Research Center (PRC) to work hand-in-hand with Integrated Dual Diagnosis Treatment (IDDT), the Recovery Life Skills Program is a stage wise, 18-module curriculum for working with those who are at the active treatment, continuing care, or recovery support stages of care. Sessions are presented in a group format, starting with such traditional relapse-prevention topics as recognizing triggers and building drug and alcohol refusal skills, then moving to developing the life skills necessary to build and maintain a healthy recovery life plan. Focus areas include: * Coping with negative feelings * Recognizing triggers for substance use * Dealing with social situations involving alcohol or other drugs * Developing communication skills * Participating in peer support groups * Practicing spirituality and inner peace * Developing a positive self-image * Adopting health eating and exercise habits Utilizing evidence-based protocols, Recovery Life Skills Program, has been tested and updated through implementation at seven pilot sites by Dartmouth researchers. This easy-to-implement curriculum, composed of a three-ring binder, a facilitator's guide featuring step-by-step protocols, and record sheets and client handouts in print and on CD-ROM for easy reproduction gives you everything you need to implement it in your program.
