These ideas can be helpful during behavior activation, for clients who needs to come up with new hobbies to fill the time they once spent using drugs, or for couples looking for something new and fun together to add a spark to their relationship. With a little creativity, this worksheet can even provide a great backdrop for group therapy activities and conversation.
