Booklet: Faces of Change

SAMHSA's Center for Substance Abuse Treatment recently released Faces of Change: Do I Have a Problem with Alcohol or Drugs? The booklet, which looks at five people from different backgrounds who have a problem with alcohol or illegal drugs, is designed especially for people who may not realize that they have a problem.

Included are questions about what could happen with continued drug use and drinking, what a substance abuse counselor could do to help, and how to avoid "triggers" and practice coping skills. The booklet also offers a helpful "Change Plan Worksheet."

To obtain a copy, contact SAMHSA's National Clearinghouse for Alcohol and Drug Information at P.O. Box 2345, Rockville, MD 20847-2345. Telephone: 1 (800) 729-6686 (English and Spanish) or 1 (800) 487-4889 (TDD). Ask for NCADI #PHD1103.
