What we're about

Gay men are uniquely exposed to a culture that promotes chemical addictions including, alcohol, crystal meth, and prescription drug abuse, as well as behavioral addictions such as overeating, overspending, codependency, and poor body image, just to name a few. Have you tried to quit but either failed or couldn't keep it up? At SMART Recovery, we are a group of gay men representing all demographics that meet weekly in a supportive nonjudgmental atmosphere to have open and honest conversations about a culture that does not promote healthy behaviors. Our members are either abstaining or are willing to think about harm reduction/abstinence from any unwanted behavior in their lives. SMART Recovery is a scientific method using cognitive behavioral therapy to help change our thought processes around unhelpful behaviors and provides the tools and support necessary to overcome any addiction. Our meeting is open to gay men whether or not you are currently using your drug of choice, engaging in your addictive behavior, or are already on the road to abstaining, our meetings provide a safe and welcoming environment. You can choose to lead a healthy addiction free life.
