Self-Help Guides to Recovery


We recommend you complete all three Phase One modules before moving onto Phase Two as these will help you get into the right frame of mind to start learning.

These modules are presented in video format and can be completed at whatever pace works for you. You will need to use the pause button at times to complete activities or whenever else you need more time to read a slide or reflect on your learning. 



Getting Started

Start your journey to self-guided recovery with our tips on how to set up your home learning environment and take care of yourself as you progress through the modules.

Starting anything new can be daunting; our ‘Getting Started’ guide will help you prepare so that you can get the most out of your learning experience.



A Guide to Recovery

Here we encourage you to think about what recovery means to you and help you identify your opportunities to move forward. This guide will take you through the methods and strategies to help you take control of and manage your own recovery journey.




Setting SMART Goals

Goal setting is important - it helps you to keep moving forwards in your recovery journey. For example, have you thought about what you want to have achieved by the end of today, this week, this month and beyond?

Are you clear about the main objectives in your life and your recovery journey? Do you know what you want to be doing in five years' time?  This guide takes you through the process of goal setting.
