SMART Recovery Program
SMART stands for Self Management and Recovery Training. SMART Recovery is a free, abstinence-based, self-empowering support group to help you break free from any kind of addictive behavior. SMART believes that there are many pathways to recovery and that the power to change behaviors resides within each individual.
SMART Recovery is not a 12-step group. SMART Recovery International is a support group for individuals, their loved ones, and family and friends who have chosen to abstain, or are considering abstinence from any type of addiction issue. That could include alcohol and drug addiction, eating disorders, behavioral addictions and other problematic behavior. The goal is teaching how to manage self-defeating thinking, emotions, and actions; and to work towards long-term satisfaction and quality of life.
SMART Recovery is based on Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy and Stages of Change Therapy, and can be done as a stand alone support system, or in combination with the 12 Step Program run by our licensed therapists. SCBH offers the most extensive SMART Recovery Training in the country, where, if you choose, you can learn how to lead and start your own SMART Meeting. We offer regular SMART meetings and groups at all our substance abuse and dual diagnosis treatment facilities. We can also help you find sober living homes following treatment.
Our inpatient rehab and outpatient rehab treatment center can help you attend your first smart recovery international meeting. Our alcohol abuse and drug addiction programs can help you grow in your recovery journey. Drug and alcohol abuse is no way to go through life. We have a variety of types of therapy to help you overcome addiction and move on to a brighter future.
