HALTS worksheet

haltsThe use of the acronym HALTS is a useful tool in relapse prevention work. HALTS stands for: Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired, Sick, Stressed. It has recently expanded to include Sensitive or Sensory for people with increased sensory sensitives such as to noise, taste and touch following detox.

This is a relapse prevention tool which can be used to identify the factors that can compromise our wellbeing and mental health. The HALTS can be used as a checklist when you have urges to use substances, feeling anxious or vulnerable, to identify what is contributing to these feelings. It is a reminder to use strategies to manage these times.
