What is the theory behind this Dealing with Change in Recovery Worksheet?

Recovery is a tough process from beginning till the end. While in recovery individuals must make certain lifestyle changes to ensure they do not go back to their addiction. When they have known that pre-recovery life for so long, the thought of welcoming any change can be a source of much anxiety and discomfort. It is thus a part of recovery to make an individual comfortable with not just the idea but the actual implementation of making lifestyle changes. This is a crucial step to prevent relapse.
