Module 15—Alternative Treatments

My goals for treatment

Before you learn about a new treatment, think about what would be most helpful to you right now. Check in with yourself about your basic needs by answering these questions:

Yes Sometimes No
Do I have faith in my ability to care for myself?
Do I ask for help when I need it?
Is my nutrition enough for my needs?
Do I get enough sleep?
Am I aware of my stress level?
Do I nourish my creativity?
Do I get enough exercise?
Am I happy with my social life?
Do I feel comfortable with my finances?
Do I have a positive attitude?
