Is SMART Recovery what you’re looking for?

Are you worried about your drug or alcohol use, or any other addictions? Do you want to regain control of your life? Try SMART Recovery, a science-based, secular and self-empowering program.

SMART Recovery offers a secular scientific alternative if you are seeking independence from alcohol, drugs, sex, gambling and other addictive behaviors. You learn to live a balanced lifestyle and free yourself from addiction. We are not saying that it is easy – but it’s maybe easier than you think to break free from a destructive lifestyle.

“Are you having trouble getting motivated to change?  – SMART Recovery has very specific and effective tools to get you motivated to change.”

We welcome you to a SMART Recovery meeting

Get smart – get started in a SMART Recovery support group, face-to-face or online. In our friendly, small group settings, we talk freely, sharing ideas, support and experience.  We learn proven, practical self-management and recovery skills – through discussions, training tools from the toolbox and other self-help activities to increase self-reliance.
