SMART Recovery Meetings

It's Time to Get SMART About Recovery

SMART Recovery​ is a peer-led, non-clinical program aimed for participants to achieve a healthy, positive, and balanced lifestyle change while navigating substance use and other addictive behaviors. Addictive behaviors could include gambling, smoking, sex, self-harm, or social media use. SMART Recovery uses techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), Harm-Reduction techniques, and Motivational Interviewing to address these behaviors and empower individuals to recover by:

 

1. building and maintaining motivation,

2. coping with urges,

3. managing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors

4. living 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 the science of addiction
