Serenity Prayer
God, grant me the Serenity to ACCEPT the things I
cannot change, COURAGE to change the things I
can, and the WISDOM to know the difference.
This is about ACCEPTANCE. Instead of getting angry, being overly critical or
denying the situation completely, recognize that your present situation came from
a long chain of events that began far in the past, based on many of YOUR OWN
RADICAL ACCEPTANCE doesn't mean you agree with bad behavior in others, or
condone it. It means you stop trying to change the situation by blaming or
getting angry. Here are some coping skills:
___"The present is the only moment I have control over."
___ "This is just the way it has to be right now."
___ "All of these events have led up to what's going on right now."
___ "I can't change what's already happened."
___ "It's no use fighting the past."
___ "This moment is the result of a thousand other decisions that have led up to it."

What is Addiction?
Addiction is defined as a chronic, relapsing brain disease that is characterized by
compulsive drug seeking and use, despite harmful consequences.
It is considered a brain disease because drugs change the brain; they change its
structure and how it works. These brain changes can be long lasting and can lead to
many harmful, often self-destructive, behaviors.
Some addictions are PHYSICAL, like opiates, benzos and alcohol. You will need to
wean off or go to medical detox.
Others are PSYCHOLOGICAL, such as cocaine, meth, etc. Both are equally
substantial in that they can take you down QUICKLY.
Pain medications, even when prescribed by a doctor, can lead to severe
addictions! Be sure to let your doctor know if you have ever had addiction disorder.
CROSS-ADDICTION is substituting one drug for another; some people go from
illegal to legal, like going from pills to alcohol....or harder drugs to softer, like meth
to marijuana...then IT takes you down that path of destruction. The addiction is
STILL THERE; you've just replaced it with another substance. Can you give an
example of this in your life?

How do I use the substance abuse&recovery workbook? The Substance Abuse & Recovery Workbook is designed to be used either independently or as part of an integrated curriculum. You may administer one of the assessments and the journaling exercises to an individual or a group with whom you are working, or you may administer a number of the assessments over one or more days.
