SMART Recovery Groups
Come with a purpose, leave with a plan.
Guided by trained peers and professionals, participants come to help themselves and help each other using a variety of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and motivational tools and techniques.
The SMART Recovery Program will help you to:
- build motivation
- cope with urges
- problem solve
- find a lifestyle balance.
You can choose to join a SMART Recovery group whenever you need, no registration is required. Just turn up.
Each weekly meeting is 90-minutes and run by a trained facilitator. The focus of each session will be on the addictive behaviour and goal setting for the week ahead.
We also run a SMART Recovery Family and Friends Program to support people that are supporting someone struggling with a problem behaviour.
