OVERVIEW: Utilizing SAMHSA’s four delineated life areas that subsidize the process of recovery and recovery maintenance, this course will focus on: health, home, purpose and community. Learners will be introduced to education in these themes as well as the ability to explore options to create an atmosphere to develop and maintain a strong recovery for both the individual and family system. This presentation will assist in improving the current negative outlook of relapses and increase knowledge and attitude toward building and strengthening an environment conducive to recovery care. (SAMHSA, 2012)

PROPOSED TRAINING GOALS:
Relapse Prevention or Recovery Maintenance? Changing perception to focus on keeping what has been achieved and further establishment as oppose to expecting and accepting that recovery is time limited and preparing for the inevitable /worst will be explored and discussed. The expectation is for learners to develop their knowledge, skill and attitude on increasing awareness and concentrate on positive accomplishments in conjunction with continued growth and gaining insight of recovery as an ongoing process. “Relapse doesn’t have to be a part of recovery.” Through education, awareness and positive reinforcement contingencies, it’s possible that it can be avoided.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES: By the end of this course, students will:

  • Gain an understanding of a safe, stable place to reside that includes responsibilities and support while being able to set clear limits and healthy boundaries
  • Recognizing the process of recovery including: beginning, middle and late stages
  • Expand knowledge of health expectations regarding informed choices that effect physical and emotional care
  • Discovering meaningful purpose of becoming independent including, but not limited to employment, leisure activities and becoming productive members of society
  • Embracing relationships and the integration of a sober support network including social and familial
  • Relapse Prevention tools and resources will be explored and the ability to utilize positive reinforcement contingencies to support the process of recovery will assist students in increasing knowledge, skills and attitude toward long term outcomes.
