This resource is designed for use by professionals who work with those fighting alcohol or drug addiction, and provides an interactive and visually stimulating guide to steer both the worker and the client through the recovery process.
Based on a model that is proven to be effective, Node-link mapping is a technique developed in the US that provides an interactive platform by which those recovering from addiction can develop the strengths and resources needed to sustain a long-term recovery journey.
This book takes this concept and delivers a new series of fresh maps, designed by an expert in the field, that can be used in both alcohol and drug addiction recovery and which supports the worker and the client through the entire recovery process.
Starting with immediate goals, such as finding accommodation and the inner strength to begin a recovery journey, it slowly builds chapter by chapter to aid and enhance the therapeutic relationship between worker and client, from making contact with recovery groups or individuals who can help, through to supporting the continued recovery journey after the completion of treatment. The technique and the maps provided can be taken by the client and used time and again for sustained recovery and to support them in their new lives.
This book contains a CD-ROM with a collection of interactive and visually stimulating maps to be printed and completed in the course of recovery, and the workbook provides a step-by-step guide to completing each of the maps, highlighting many issues to be considered and the techniques needed to get the best results from each one.
Individual staff and teams working with people fighting drug or alcohol addiction.
