What is SMART Recovery?
SMART Recovery is a community to support people who want to break free from addictive behaviors. This includes alcohol or drug addictions of any kind, or even behavioral addictions like gambling. SMART stands for Self-Management And Recovery Training. SMART recovery uses a four-point system:
- Building and maintaining motivation
- Coping with urges
- Managing thoughts, feelings, and behavior
- Living a balanced life
The SMART Recovery program provides tools and training that go with each of the four points. The goal is to learn self-empowerment and self-reliance. At the same time replacing addictive behaviors with healthy coping strategies.
The SMART Recovery program was founded in 1994 and currently has over 3000 weekly meetings across the world. They also have meetings and message boards online. The online message boards are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. All meetings are free to attend.
SMART Recovery is not a 12-Step program like Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous. SMART Recovery uses a scientific foundation to change addictive behaviors. It does not include spiritual principles.
This program builds self-empowerment instead of admitting powerlessness to an addiction. SMART recovery participants do not have sponsors like a 12-step program. The group discourages people from calling themselves and others alcoholics or addicts.
