Smart Groups

Self-Management And Recovery Training Open Meetings

SMART stands for Self-Management and Recovery Training. Participants attend meetings which are ideally peer led but at times professionally led. Individuals learn new tools and techniques which can support a change of behaviour and thinking. The meetings are confidential and structured. Participation at the meetings is voluntary and there is no pressure to speak.

The meetings revolve around a 4 point program:

  1. Managing thoughts, feelings and behaviours
  2. Live a balanced life
  3. Cope with urges
  4. Build and maintain motivation

To empower people with practical skills, tools and support so that they may manage their addictive behaviour and lead satisfying and meaningful lives (SMART UK Website)
