12 Steps to Sober Leisure
A presentation from DRTA 2022 Virtual Conference
Abagail Bernard has been working in the field of SUD (Substance Use Disorder) treatment for over 32 years. In 2012, she created a novel approach to leisure education for her groups. It received an overwhelmingly positive response from her clients and staff. Wanting to share this resource with others, she published it in 2018. Since then, 12 Steps to Sober Leisure has become a part of TR and SUD counseling programs in the US, Canada, and more! In this session, she will provide an overview of the workbook, present program ideas to reinforce the material, and discuss the TR goals and objectives that are addressed. Abagail lives in upstate NY USA, with her husband and daughter. She is employed as the Activities Coordinator of Conifer Park in Glenville, NY. She earned her CTRS in 2010.
