SMART Recovery is proud to sponsor the inaugural Rethink Addiction National Convention this September. SMART supports over 2,000 Australians weekly to have a conversation around addiction and behaviours of concern without any stigma or shame.
“It is time that we had that conversation together as a country. Let us shift the narrative from blame and shame to one of mutual aid, self-management and harm minimisation. This is a historic moment for us as a country to come together and Rethink Addiction.,” says SMART Recovery Australia’s CEO, April Long.
Rethink Addiction is Australia’s national anti-stigma campaign, dedicated to educating and advocating for the need to change the nation’s attitude and approach to addition. They are a campaign and movement across civil society that is changing the conversation about addiction, breaking down stigma and lifting the voices of lived experience.
The National Convention is an historic opportunity to come together to change the conversation. Key experts across related sectors, people with lived experience and other interested parties from civil society are coming to our nation’s capital in September to let decision makers know there is a better way.
