SMART (Self-Management and Recovery Training) Recovery is a non-profit organization, dedicated to helping individuals gain independence from addictive behavior. SMART Recovery is a science based, secular alternative to 12-Step programs. We understand addictive behavior to include problems with substances like alcohol, drugs and food, as well as problems from activities like eating, shopping, procrastinating, gambling and sexual behavior.
