SMART Recovery meetings are not the same as 12 Step programs. In SMART Recovery programs, a member does not have a sponsor. The program also avoids the use of the terms addict and alcoholic. The SMART Recovery program also says it is ok for people to appropriately use psychological treatment and medications.
SMART recovery uses a four-point system:
- Building and maintaining motivation
- Coping with urges
- Managing thoughts, feelings, and behavior
- Living a balanced life
SMART Recovery teaches techniques for self-directed change. This program offers various tools to work alongside the four points. Some of these tools are:
- Change plan worksheet
- Decision-making worksheet (Cost/ Benefit Analysis)
