Part of the 7-video series: The 7 Skills for Addiction-Free Living


The 7 Skills for Addiction-Free Living: Stress Management
For those recovering from substance abuse, coping with the daily stress of living can be especially taxing. Suddenly, the old way of relieving anxiety and doubt by using drugs or alcohol is no longer available. Additionally, facing stressful situations can tempt us to resort to less-healthy patterns of behavior in order to cope. So it’s crucial to find new methods for dealing with stress that will support the recovery process rather than threaten to derail it.

In this video, renowned psychologists Jon Carlson and Judy Lewis offer four simple yet effective strategies for managing stressful situations, from paying bills to planning weddings. With a live studio audience in various stages of substance abuse recovery, Carlson and Lewis walk participants through relaxation exercises, lifestyle adjustment strategies, thought pattern correction methods, and the creation of action plans for preventing stressful circumstances. You’ll come away with a renewed confidence in your ability to manage stressful situations without jeopardizing your recovery.
This video is part of the series 7 Skills for Addiction-Free Living, and is primarily geared towards people in recovery, as well as their family members and loved ones. It is also an excellent resource for educators and trainers in addiction counseling programs, as well as staff at recovery treatment centers. Therapists in private practice will want this in their library to lend to clients struggling with substance abuse.

"Psychotherapists are aware that stress reduction is one of the first steps in approaching anxiety, conflict and panic, and is essential as an alternative to using substances. This quality DVD shows practical relaxation exercises--more tools for the addict in recovery. These exercises are especially appealing to those who learn by example and demonstration. This DVD will be a client pleaser. Your client in recovery will be convinced that your practical help spreads far and wide."
