SMART Recovery

SMART Recovery (SMART) is a science-based programme to help people manage their recovery from any type of addictive behaviour. This includes addictive behaviour with substances such as alcohol, nicotine or drugs, or compulsive behaviours such as gambling, sex, eating, shopping, self-harming and so on. SMART stands for ‘Self Management And Recovery Training’.

Auricular Acupuncture is the stimulation of acupuncture points on the surface of the ear. It helps with many of the different problems associated with changing or stopping substance misuse and particularly helps to:

• Reduce and alleviate withdrawal symptoms
• Helps improve sleep patterns
• Decreases cravings for drugs
• Relieves tension, anxiety and stress
• Aids relaxation
• Clears the mind, builds energy and gives a sense of well being
