Take it Away Book 1 – Planning for Change


This new edition of a popular booklet is for use by people preparing to make changes to their alcohol or other drug use. It guides the reader through a series of exercises to help them clarify why they want to change and what they hope to achieve. It includes a range of practical tools that are of benefit to people at various stages of the change process, but are particularly relevant to those considering participating in alcohol and other drug treatment.

Planning for Change is paired with the second Take it away handbook: Keeping Going, which supports people to maintain the changes they have made.
