SMART Recovery, which is the acronym for Self-Management And Recovery Training, is a peer community that offers support to people with addiction.
It’s a global abstinence-oriented organization that brings people together to help one another resolve their problem with addiction.
According to SMART Recovery, participants help one another “find and develop the power within themselves to change and lead fulfilling and balanced lives guided by our science-based and sensible 4-Point Program.” The program is free and teaches participants techniques to help them transition their lives from being self-destructive to happy and fulfilling.
Unlike other programs, SMART Recovery avoids labels like “alcoholic” and “addict.” The goal of the program is to provide a scientifically validated method that empowers people and helps them change their life for the better.
The program acknowledges that addictions are a coping mechanism, but that they are ultimately harmful and do more harm than good.
SMART Recovery teaches short-term and long-term coping skills participants can use to move forward in their lives and avoid turning to an addiction to cope. Teachings focus on the present and what to do when faced with situations that lead to self-destructive choices.
