ABOUT THE TRAINING
Self-Management And Recovery Training (SMART) is a global community of mutual-support groups. At 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 our science-based and sensible 4-Point Program®.
SMART meetings are organic and no two meetings are exactly alike. Participants will have the opportunity to engage with other peers on a variety of topics. Members do not have to actively participate. At the beginning of every session, we will check in and remind participants of the general guidelines. These meetings are open to all.
Training Topics include:
- Building and Maintaining Motivation
- Coping with Urges
- Managing Thoughts, Feelings and Behaviors
- Living a Balanced Life
There is no cost associated with these meetings.
