Intake and Orientation Workbook (32174W) and Guide (32174G)

The 128 page participant workbook, written at a sixth-grade level, contains materials that reflect real-life experiences of offenders with addiction and activities that demonstrate addictive and criminal thought processes. Fifty exercises cover: Criminal and Addictive Thinking, Building a Foundation for Your Future, Setting Housing Goals, Setting Employment Goals, Your Budget and Free Time, and Your Plan for Life after Release.

Turning Point DVD Video (32174V)

This compelling video was developed for male clients who are dealing with alcohol or other drug addiction. It includes interviews with African American men in different stages of recovery and reintegration, along with straight talk from counselors, community activists, a neighborhood pastor, and a drug court judge. All echo the same message: in order to change, these men must give up not only alcohol and other drugs but also their unhealthy lifestyles.

Viewers will learn strategies to create a healthy environment, find positive support, overcome shame and guilt, rebuild self-esteem, identify triggers, avoid relapse, and ensure that core beliefs and values align with positive goals. While this video features African American men in an urban environment, the information shown applies to all men in recovery. This video can be used alone or as part of the Hazelden Community Corrections Program.

Life on Life's Terms DVD Video (32174V)

Inmates and former inmates "not actors" discuss what they did to safeguard their sobriety after either reintegration into general population or release from incarceration. As one former inmate explains in the video, "The time and energy we once wasted on our addiction is now available for developing our talents and skills." Offering straightforward and helpful advice, the inmates and former inmates in this video talk about their experiences in four critical areas:

  • finding a place to live
  • searching for a job
  • figuring out how to handle spare time
  • discovering who to turn to for support

Taped in Minnesota correctional facilities, A New Direction video series allows real inmates to tell the real story about recovering from a life of addiction and crime. The result is a powerful, direct, and liberating message about finding a life of recovery and freedom. A New Direction is Hazelden's comprehensive cognitive-behavioral therapy curriculum for addicted offenders.
