SMART Recovery Meetings

It's Time to get SMART about Recovery


SMART Recovery​ is a cost-free, peer-led support program for those who are in recovery from substance use as well as other problematic, addictive behaviors to video games, shopping, and just about anything else. 


In SMART Recovery, facilitators guide group participants to better understand addictive behaviors and teach them SMART tools to manage or reduce symptoms. The program is based on helping others achieve the following four goals towards recovery: 

1. Build and maintain motivation

2. Coping and urges

3. Manage thoughts, feelings and behaviors

4. Live a balanced life

The SMART Approach

  • Teaches self-empowerment and self-reliance

  • Encourages individuals to recover and live satisfying lives

  • Teaches tools and techniques for self-directed change

  • Meetings are educational and include open discussions

  • Is evidence-based and rooted in science of addiction
