SMART Recovery® for Family & Friends (F&F) weekly meetings are for any person affected by the addictive behaviour of someone close to them. 


SMART Recovery Family and Friend’s Weekly meeting are available online @ 

TUESDAY:   Evening:     7.30pm – 9.00pm

SMART Family & Friends helps family members, supporters and friends to develop more effective coping strategies and find a greater sense of fulfilment in their own lives.

Our groups help people to find the motivation to change, engage in self-care, challenge their own thinking, and communicate assertively.

We provide strategies to stay safe, seek support, problem solve and set goals.

Our groups are run by trained facilitators who often have their own experiences as a family member affected by a loved one’s relationship with alcohol, drugs, gambling, or other problematic behaviours.

Our approach is evidence based, secular and non-judgemental.

“The focus is not on the person with the problem behaviour, but to teach practical skills to the supporter to improve their own resilience and wellbeing” Josette Freeman.
