SMART Recovery Mutual Aid Group

Clarendon Link  launch SMART Recovery – a mutual aid group – every Wednesday from 6pm

SMART Recovery (SMART) is a programme designed to help people manage their recovery from any type of addictive behaviour. SMART stands for ‘Self Management And Recovery Training’.

 There is no single approach to recovery that is right for everyone. Research into various recovery methods and therapies suggests that mutual aid can help recovery and so can treatment – a combination of the two is probably even better for many people.

 SMART Recovery helps participants decide whether they have a problem, builds up their motivation to change and offers a set of proven tools and techniques to support recovery. This is the SMART Recovery 4-point programme:

 Building and maintaining motivation

Coping with urges

Managing thoughts, feelings and behaviours

Living a balanced life

People can attend the group at any time and stay with SMART as long as they wish. There is no requirement to make a lifetime commitment to the programme, just to their recovery and leading a healthier life.
