Stages of Change Model: A five-stage psychological model of behavior applied to addiction made up of pre-contemplation (“I don’t have a problem”), contemplation (“I might have a problem”), preparation (“I have a problem, what can I do about it?”), action (“I can and am fixing the problem”) and maintenance (“I’ve more or less fixed the problem, now just keeping an eye on it”). Relapse, of course, can happen along any of these stages, which leads the addict back to the first stage.
