The SMART Approach

SMART Recovery teaches self-empowerment and self-reliance.

  • SMART Recovery does not use the disease model.
  • Teaches practical tools and techniques for self-directed change.
  • Encourages individuals to recover and live healthy satisfying lives.
  • Meetings include open and interactive discussions and can be educational.
  • Works on addictions/compulsions/dependence as complex maladaptive behaviours.
  • Advocates the appropriate use of prescribed medications and psychological treatments, such as anti-depressants, Methadone, Buprenorphine.
