SMART Recovery helps people recover from all types of addiction and addictive behaviors. These addictions and behaviors include alcoholism, drug abuse, drug addiction, substance abuse, alcohol abuse, gambling addiction, cocaine addiction, and addiction to other substances and activities.
SMART Recovery is a support group that offers their participants the tools for recovery from addiction that are based on the latest scientific research. They participate in a world-wide community that includes free, self-empowering, secular and science based mutual support groups. SMART Recovery isn't a 12 Step group like AA or NA. SMART stands for self-management and recovery training and this recovery has a scientific foundation, not a spiritual one.
This recovery program is a nationwide nonprofit organization that offers free support groups to individuals who desire to gain independence from any type of addictive behavior. There is also a free internet message board discussion group. Their program currently sponsors over 600 face to face meetings around the world and over 18 online meetings a week. SMART Recovery also has an online message board. This is a great way to learn about their recovery program. The message board is a forum that's not only used for information but for recovery support too.
SMART Recovery is a 4-Point Program that offers tools and techniques for each program point. The program points include:
- Point 1
Enhancing and Maintaining Motivation to Abstain
- Point 2
- Coping with Urges
- Point 3
- Managing Thoughts, Feelings, and Behavior (Problem Solving)
- Point 4
- Balancing Momentary and Enduring Satisfactions (Lifestyle Balance)

SMART Recovery also has help for family and friends. This is a science based secular alternative to Al-Anon and Johnson Intervention. Every Monday night there is a Family and Friends Online Support Meeting that addresses specific issues encountered when a friend or family member tries to reach out and help a loved one that's affected by addiction.
