SMART Recovery supports individuals who have chosen to abstain, or are considering abstinence from any type of addictive behaviours (substances or activities), by teaching how to change self-defeating thinking, emotions, and actions; and to work towards long-term satisfactions and quality of life.
SMART Recovery (Self Management And Recovery Training) helps individuals gain independence from addiction (substances or activities). It involves a 4-Point Program offering specific tools and techniques for each of the program points:
- Point 1: Building and Maintaining Motivation
- Point 2: Coping with Urges
- Point 3: Managing Thoughts, Feelings and Behaviours
- Point 4: Living a Balanced Life
