SMART Recovery is a free, confidential peer recovery program to help overcome unhealthy habits (drinking & drug usage), or behaviors (over/under eating & gaming obsession).
How Does It Work?
SMART Recovery uses tools based on scientifically tested methods for addiction recovery, such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), and Motivational Interviewing. SMART Recovery uses a 4-step program to be able to assist individuals for all stages of recovery through:
1. Building & maintaining motivation
2. Coping with urges
3. Managing thoughts, feelings & behaviors
4. Living a balanced life.
What Makes It Different?
SMART Recovery advocates choice, so that those seeking recovery can choose what works best for them from a ‘tool-box’ of methods and approaches used in meetings. This is NOT a 12-step based program, and does not rely on a ‘higher power’ or sponsors for recovery.
The Smart Recovery Goal:
Achieve a healthy, positive & balanced lifestyle. Youth are encouraged to ‘move on’ with their life after overcoming the challenges they’re currently facing. Meetings are free so join us to reclaim your life & discover for yourself the power of choice!
