Focusing on stress management, time management, activities of daily living, and social-skills training, this guide addresses each living skill in relation to how it aids in recovery and relapse prevention for each patient's individual lifestyle and pattern of addiction. Precin's Living Skills Recovery Workbook also instructs recovering addicts on how to manage their psychiatric symptoms to promote the highest level of integration into their community.
This comprehensive workbook contains a collection of activities and worksheets to teach skills necessary to improve the quality of life for individuals with dual disorders, along with 70 forms that can be filled in by patients to aid in self-awareness. Ultimately, this guide emphasizes recovery through functional development skills.
