(p. 157) Personal Emergency Plan
A high-risk situation is one that puts you at risk for having thoughts about using or makes you tempted to use alcohol or drugs. It is best to stay away from high-risk situations whenever possible. If it is not possible to avoid a situation, then you need to have a plan for how to manage the situation.
If I encounter a high-risk situation:
1. I will leave the situation immediately.
2. I will put off the decision to use for 15 minutes.
3. I will think about the negative consequences of using (e.g., unemployment or problems with work, broken relationships, low self-esteem, financial and legal problems, medical problems).
4. I will think about the positive benefits of not using (e.g., better physical and mental health, more money, clearer thinking, improved relationships).
5. I will call someone on my list of emergency numbers.
