When I was introduced to these new “inspirational playing cards for those in recovery,” I became very excited about their potential therapeutic use! As a former clinician and clinical director in the recovery field, I could see many positive uses for these cards both within the treatment and recovery communities! They will make great ice breakers for a therapy group by passing them out to each person present and having them explain what their understanding of the phrase or “what the phrase means to them.” I could also see them being useful in the sponsor / sponsee relationship or perhaps as a reward or “gift” for hard work as those in recovery work the 12-Steps or toward achieving their goals. I’ve offered to talk with the recovery community in my area and to encourage them to try this new “therapeutic tool.” I encourage each of you reading this to do the same!
