SMART Recovery Program

SMART Recovery (Self Management And Recovery Training) welcomes people to address challenges with any addiction, including addiction to alcohol, tobacco, opioids and gambling. The program has four parts: developing and maintaining motivation for change, dealing with urges and cravings; working through thoughts, feelings and behaviors; and living a balanced life.
