    “I recently completed the SMART Recovery Group Facilitator’s Training with Josette Freeman. I came away feeling confident that I will be able to facilitate a group in the near future and with a good understanding of what is required to work within this training program. SMART Recovery is a very different approach to group work and I am so pleased that I have now completed this valuable training.”

    “Kedesh offers a CBT-based residential drug and alcohol program. When we looked for a program that we could offer former clients as well as people from the local community, SMART Recovery was a natural fit. The SMART Facilitator Training helped us to apply our existing CBT knowledge in a group setting.”
