SMART Recovery Family & Friends helps those who are affected by a loved one's drug abuse, alcohol abuse, or other behavioral addictions (such as gambling, spending, sex/love addiction, smoking, food addiction, etc.) SMART Recovery would like to welcome you and help you find the information and provide you with the resources you can use to help yourself, as well your loved one.
SMART Recovery Family & Friends is a science-based, secular alternative to Al-Anon and Johnson Intervention. Our method is based on the tools of SMART Recovery and CRAFT (Community Reinforcement Approach & Family Training). CRAFT aims to teach family and friends self-protection and non-confrontational skills to help their addicted loved one find recovery.
The meetings share SMART Recovery tools that can be implemented by family/friends to help with emotional upsets, to promote effective communication methods when dealing with loved ones, and more. Techniques employed within the CRAFT Program (Community Reinforcement Approach and Family Training) are shared for the benefit of meeting attendees.
