The Stages of Change model addresses an issue of fundamental importance to lasting recovery – meeting a person with substance use disorder where he is at that point in time and then moving him through the process of becoming willing, then able to make the changes he seeks. This multi-staged process begins with complete denial or lack of awareness that a problem even exists, to an ultimate transcendence of the problem so that it truly is no longer part of your life.
