RELAPSE PREVENTION GROUP

PRESENTER
Chip Abernathy, MA, LPC

DESCRIPTION
People in recovery from addiction can experience progressive warning signs that reactivate denial and cause so much pain that using alcohol or other drugs for relief seems like a good idea. This is not a conscious process. These warning signs develop automatically and unconsciously. Since most recovering people have never been taught how to identify and manage relapse warning signs, they don't notice them until the pain becomes too severe to ignore.

Relapse prevention involves bringing warning signs and high risk situations for relapse into conscious awareness, and then creating effective management strategies for those.

In this educational and interactive group, participants will learn about and work on : Understanding Addiction; Recovery as a Developmental Process; Utilizing 12 Step Programs; Keeping It Simple; Paying Attention to Thoughts, Feelings and Actions; Recovery Principles and Skills; Having Fun; Identification and Management of Relapse Warning Signs and High Risk Situations; and Recovery As a Way of Life.

DATE/TIME/DURATION
Mondays. Co-ed group. 6:00 PM until 7:15 PM at the Sandy Springs office.

COST/FEE
Individual session is $140
Groups are $65 per group

Other times yin yoga, (stretching postures which are held for a longer time) will be offered as a moving meditation.
