PDF (Cocaine relapse worksheets)
- Published Version
The Cocaine Relapse Worksheets have been developed by the SAOL Project in consultation with local drug projects and services in the Dublin area. The need for relapse intervention tools was identified by projects in the North Inner City Drugs Task Force area and an application to fund a range of cocaine responses was made to the Dormant Accounts Fund by the SAOL Project. While the worksheets are specifically targeted at cocaine users, they could be used effectively with other addictive behaviours by adapting the examples.
The worksheets are part of a range of three practical responses to cocaine use, including an Eight Week Reduce the Use Course for groups of cocaine users and a CD targeting individual users.
The Worksheets are designed to be used in one to one sessions between a client and Key Worker. They are a practical, brief, intervention tool and not a replacement for counselling or a longer term therapeutic relationship. A Key Worker with good inter-personal skills, experience and training in addiction work should be well equipped to work through them with their client.
Many local projects are helping clients through cocaine relapses on a regular basis by providing support, guidance and advice. These worksheets simply provide the worker and client with a practical framework to address their relapse.
