Introduction to Treatment DVDOnline Price: $149.00
Help inmates acclimate to chemical dependency treatment with this powerful DVD. Features real inmates who speak candidly about their biggest fears and greatest challenges of being in a prison treatment program.
Inmates, not actors, talk about their biggest fears and greatest challenges in becoming involved in a prison treatment program. Whether their initial motivation to participate was to get out of general population for a while, to please a spouse or family member, or to truly make life changes, the inmates candidly discuss their reasons for entering a cognitive-behavioral therapy program and their experiences during treatment. Among their discoveries about treatment:
- change won't happen unless you are honest about your attitudes, behaviors, and choices
- in time, you have to be willing to share feelings and disclose personal information
- as a group member you are responsible for holding yourself and others accountable for words and actions
- reaching out to others for help and support is difficult but necessary
