Taking Steps for Men will help participants identify and understand those behaviours and thoughts that trigger substance use and begin to examine and question their behaviours as they learn they no longer have to feel stuck, anxious, worried and powerless.
Conducted in a group setting, this contemplative program is intended to provide information about substance use and misuse, its effects and consequences.
This group will invite participants to examine personal substance use, consider options and make choices. It will introduce treatment options and encourage the development of personal strategies.
If further treatment is indicated, individual treatment planning and case management will be provided.
Some Topics Covered
During the 12 sessions individuals will examine:
- What is low-risk substance use?
- How much is too much?
- Drug use Continuum
- Stages of Change
- Identifying high risk situations
- Decisional Matrix and how to use it
- Effective communications strategies
- Building balance and structure
