Welcome to SMART Recovery®, the leading self-empowering addiction recovery support group! Our participants learn recovery tools based on the latest scientific research and participate in a world-wide community with free, self-empowering, science-based mutual help groups and online services. SMART Recovery® is an alternative program to Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA), using a science-based approach. The SMART Recovery® program uses non-confrontational motivational, behavioral and cognitive methods in assisting individuals seeking abstinence from addictive behaviors. SMART Recovery® is a program based on: * Choice * Personal Responsibility * Proven Principles Of Change * Unconditional Self-Acceptance * Science, reason and humanist values How does SMART Recovery® work? In our friendly, small group settings, we talk freely, sharing ideas, support and experience. We learn proven, practical self-management and recovery skills through these discussions and self-help activities. We also learn specific methods for each task of the SMART Recovery® 4-Point Program™ to: ♦ Enhance and maintain motivation to abstain ♦ Cope with urges ♦ Manage thoughts, feelings and behavior ♦ Balance momentary and enduring satisfactions
