According to S.A.M.S.A., “Resilience develops over time and gives an individual the capacity not only to cope with life’s challenges but also to be better prepared for the next stressful situation. Optimism and the ability to remain hopeful are essential to resilience and the process of recovery.”
The Recovery deck was created to assist those in recovery to help build Skills & Attitudes of resilience in order to respond to everyday challenges and those particular to recovering from alcohol/substance abuse. Use it to initiate difficult conversations with your support system. Use it as a resource for peer support groups. Use it to introduce and prepare those new to recovery to the challenges and the tools to help build resilience.

- If you are just joining our game, please follow this link for a little background information on how we are playing this particular game.
BounceBack will be available for purchase via our website soon. We’d like to introduce you to BounceBack by playing a bi-weekly (Tuesdays and Thursdays) game on our homepage using our free Downloadable Demonstration Deck.
Your Challenge Card from our Downloadable Demonstration Deck is featured above. Once you’ve dealt with the challenge, magnify your screen and take a close look at the bottom of the card. There you will see the Skills & Attitudes we feel might be most helpful in managing the scenario. You can also use other skills and attitudes that you find helpful as long as you can explain how you would apply them. We challenge you to find new ways of responding to adversity.
Which of these Skills & Attitudes will you choose to apply?
Follow along alone, with a friend or a group. Talk to others and find out how they would respond. We can learn much from one another. But if we wish to learn from our experiences, we must first get through them.
Please feel free to contact us with your feedback.
