PARTICIPANTS MUST ATTEND FIVE SMART RECOVERY MEETINGS BEFORE ATTENDANCE & PARTICIPATION SHEETS WILL BE SIGNED
SMART Recovery Australia has a new policy around signing attendance sheets and letters for mandated clients attending SMART Recovery meetings (such as participants referred from Probation and Parole, lawyers, etc.).
As of December 1, 2015, mandated clients must attend five SMART Recovery meetings before their Attendance & Participation Sheet will be signed off by the meeting facilitator.
Step 1. The mandated client or participant must print off the below attendance sheet and bring to the SMART Recovery meeting.
Step 2. At the end of the meeting, the facilitator will stamp the form with a dedicated SMART Recovery stamp (pictured).
Step 3. Once five meetings have been attended (and five stamps are collected), the meeting facilitator will provide a signature on the attendance sheet.
Participants will need to participate in the meeting, not merely attend, in order to receive a stamp. This will be left to the discretion of the facilitator.
Facilitators will not write court reports or reference letters for lawyers or mandated clients.
