Staying Quit - Relapse Prevention Program
A 40-page client workbook based on the principles of cognitive-behavioral relapse prevention. Most relapse prevention workbooks are so detailed and intricate that the materials are too complicated for typical clients. Staying Quit is an 8-session program that focuses on risky situations, scripting changes, coping with urges and cravings, being around users, understanding support issues, and taking charge. Clients will tell you when and where they will relapse—and with whom—if you know how to ask. This enables you to target the most risky situations.
Target Population & Use
Staying Quit is targeted to individuals who are active in substance abuse programs of any type and any setting. Relapse prevention actually is the primary goal of treatment, but focusing on relapse prevention issues should take place sometime after the client is engaged in treatment and is not actively using substances.
The program is in use in adult and juvenile substance abuse treatment programs in virtually any setting including drug/DUI courts, corrections, probation and parole, community corrections, diversion programs, and in private treatment settings.
How It Is Conducted
The program has 8 modules completed in 8 group sessions supplemented by several sessions with a counselor or facilitator. Clients complete homework for each module prior to coming to group. In group each client presents his or her homework to the group and the facilitator passes the client to the next module or has the client redo the homework based on objective criteria. The groups are open-ended meaning that new clients can enter an ongoing group at any time. Each group session will usually have new clients as well as some finishing the program. A typical group will have a client present Module 1, another client completes Module 2, and so on. The workbook is individualized to specific client needs by requirements to meet with the facilitator or counselor at several modules.
The Staying Quit Facilitator’s Guide gives basic instructions as well as the objective criteria that should be used for each module. Several other treatment tools are recommended and are essential to relapse prevention clients. These include CDs that clients utilize both in and out of group: Basic Relaxation; Progressive Muscle Relaxation; Clean & Sober Visualization; and Systematic Desensitization. The book is also available on an audio CD set.
