Self-Management And Recovery Training (SMART) holds in-person and online peer support group sessions and has a 24/7 online forum.
At in-person and online meetings, participants help one another resolve problems with any addiction (to drugs or alcohol or to activities such as gambling or over-eating). Participants find and develop the power within themselves to change and lead fulfilling and balanced lives guided by a science-based and sensible 4-Point Program. A variety of tools and techniques are employed for each of SMART’s 4 Points, including the Cost/Benefit Analysis; Change Plan Worksheet; Hierarchy of Values; ABCs of Rational-Emotive Behavioral Therapy (for both urge-coping and emotional upsets); DISARM (Destructive Imagery and Self-talk Awareness and Refusal Method); Brainstorming; and Role-playing/Rehearsing. See a calendar of online meetings at https://www.smartrecovery.org/community/calendar.php
In the 24/7 Community Forum (https://www.smartrecovery.org/community/) you can ask questions and share experiences.
SMART Recovery believes that each individual must find their own path to recovery. For some, that path may include 12-step programs or other self-empowering groups. Although the SMART approach differs from those of other organizations, it does not exclude them. Participants make their own choices and create their own paths.Languages:
