SMART Recovery (Self-Management And Recovery Training)
Bi-Weekly at the ROCC- Alternating Thursdays 4 - 5 pm
SMART Recovery is a self-empowering addiction recovery support group. Participants learn tools for recovery based on evidence-based addiction treatments, including Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. Meetings are educational, supportive and include open discussions.
The goal of SMART Recovery is for you to achieve a healthy, positive and balanced lifestyle so you can conquer new challenges when you feel confident your addictive behavior is behind you.
SMART provides a 4-Point Program which includes the following components:
Point 1: Building and Maintaining Motivation
Point 2: Coping with Urges
Point 3: Managing Thoughts, Feelings, and Behaviors
Point 4: Living a Balanced Life
SMART Recovery believes that each individual finds their own path to recovery. For some participants, that path may include 12-step programs, like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA), or other self-empowering groups such as Women for Sobriety, LifeRing Secular Recovery, Moderation Management, or Secular Organizations for Sobriety. Although the SMART Recovery approach differs from each of these approaches in various ways, it does not necessarily exclude them. Some SMART Recovery participants choose to attend other meetings when they cannot attend a SMART Recovery meeting, as they construct their own paths to recovery.
