SMART Recovery® is an addiction recovery support group that helps people recover from all types of addiction and addictive behaviors, including: drug addiction, substance abuse, alcohol abuse, gambling addiction, cocaine addiction, prescription drug abuse, sexual addiction, and problem addiction to other substances and activities.
At SMART Recovery we believe that each individual finds his own path to recovery. For some participants, that path may include 12-step programs, like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA). Although the SMART Recovery approach differs from each of these approaches in various ways, it does not necessarily exclude them. Some SMART Recovery participants choose to attend other meetings as they construct their own paths to recovery.
The SMART Recovery 4-Point Program offers tools and techniques for each program point:
1: Building and Maintaining Motivation 2: Coping with Urges 3: Managing Thoughts, Feelings and Behaviors 4: Living a Balanced Life Our Approach: Our approach teaches techniques for self-directed change. There is no charge to attend our meetings, but we are self-supporting and kindly accept donations. Provides meetings that are educational, supportive and include open discussions. Encourages individuals to recover from addiction and alcohol abuse and live satisfying lives.
