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
