Clients describe how feelings of discomfort have been dealt with, how isolation may have been a contributing factor in past difficulties, typical patterns of "build up" toward relapse, the need for control of uncomfortable feelings, and steps taken in the past to achieve that feeling of control, and how they began to plan or "set themselves up" for relapse.

This material is easily adapted to age- and gender-specific programs.
