Learning to recognize and respect triggers for substance use can make a significant impact on recovery. Use this substance use worksheet to help your clients start to think about, and become aware of, their own triggers.
The When I am Tempted to Use worksheet includes a list of common triggers, and some blank space for your client to write in the things that put them at risk of relapse or cravings. After you and your client have generated a list of triggers, you can begin to discuss strategies to help avoid or manage them in the future. This worksheet can also be effective as a conversation piece for groups.
