Problem Solving

Good problem solving skills are  necessary and  important in recovery. Remember, problems often lead to relapse.

There are nine steps to problem solving:

Pinpoint: specify or define, exactly what is the problem. You must know what the problem is  before  you can  solve  it.  Discuss  the  problem in  terms of  your  feelings  and  what  triggers those feelings.

Example: “I feel angry when your bunkie borrows my things without asking.”

Analyze: break the problem apart; examine it, investigate it.

Questions to ask:

  1. How long has it been going on?
  2. Is it something that happens all the time or just once?
  3. What events take place when the problem occurs?
  4. Why is it happening and what will happen if it is not solved?
  5. Does this only happen to others or me also?

Brainstorm:  think of  all  your  options or  ways  that  you  can  deal  with  this.  Search  for solutions. Be creative. Think of at least three options and write them down.


Judge the quality of each option. Decide which option is the best to help solve the problem.

Questions to ask:

  1. How much time is required?
  2. How much effort is required?
  3. What things or people do you need to solve this problem?
  4. What are the consequences?

Writing down this information can be helpful.

Select: after looking at all your options; choose the best.

Plan: develop a blueprint for your choice. Create a step-by-step plan.

Questions to ask:

  1. When should I carry out my plan?
  2. How long will this take?
  3. What obstacles will get in my way?

Discussing your plan with others may be helpful.

Implement: carry out the option.

Evaluate: Judge your choice to see how it worked.

Questions to ask:

  1. What were the favorable consequences? Were they what I expected?
  2. What were the unfavorable consequences and did I expect them?
  3. Am I satisfied with the results?

Stop or shift: At this point, you can stop if you are satisfied or you can shift and choose another alternative if you did not like the results of your plan.
