SMART Recovery® - Self Help for Substance Abuse & Addiction

"Discover the Power of Choice!"

SMART Recovery® is the leading self-empowering addiction recovery support group. Our participants learn tools for addiction recovery based on the latest scientific research and participate in a world-wide community which includes free, self-empowering, science-based mutual help groups.

The SMART Recovery 4-Point Program® helps people recover from all types of addiction and addictive behaviors, including: drug abuse, drug addiction, substance abuse, alcohol abuse, gambling addiction, cocaine addiction, prescription drug abuse, and problem addiction to other substances and activities. SMART Recovery sponsors face-to-face meetings around the world, and daily online meetings. In addition, our online message board and 24/7 chat room are excellent forums to learn about SMART Recovery and obtain addiction recovery support.

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

  • • Teaches self-empowerment and self-reliance.
  • • Provides meetings that are educational, supportive and include open discussions.
  • • Encourages individuals to recover from addiction and alcohol abuse and live satisfying lives.
  • • Teaches techniques for self-directed change.
  • • Supports the scientifically informed use of psychological treatment and legally prescribed psychiatric and addiction medication.
  • • Works on substance abuse, alcohol abuse, addiction and drug abuse as complex maladaptive behaviors with possible physiological factors.
  • • Evolves as scientific knowledge in addiction recovery evolves.
  • • Differs from Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and other 12-step programs.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
