The Drug Recovery Game helps players improve their understanding of the process a person goes through when trying to give up a substance. It explores both the theoretical knowledge needed to work with people using or giving up substances, and the everyday challenges which can lead to relapse or making progress.
Players compete to reach the top of “Recovery Mountain”, answering and discussing questions to improve their drug and alcohol knowledge. Their journey to achieve recovery is boosted or hindered by “Recovery” and “Trigger” cards that present situations which might trigger a relapse, or lead to a positive change in behaviour.
Suitable for anyone in health, social or community care who has contact with individuals recovering from addiction – both qualified staff and students.
Suitable for 2-4 players (or teams).
