‘An intro to SMART Recovery’ by Curtis Boudreau

Mark Gilman spotted this little gem. For those of you who don’t know,  SMART Recovery is based on a 4-point programme that helps a person: build and maintain motivation; cope with urges; manage thoughts, feelings and behaviours; and live a balanced life.

SMART teaches self-empowerment and self-reliance. It provides meetings that are educational, supportive and include open discussions. 

This instructional film is well worth a watch.

      Great news Dianne! Please trawl around the website as there’s plenty of motivating stuff on there. Would be good to know what else ‘worked’ so we can point people towards it. Feel free to contact if you are struggling again. You can do this. My best, David
