Introduction to SMART Recovery with Tom Horvath.

What is SMART Recovery?

SMART stands for Self Management and Recovery Training. It is a program of recovery from substance abuse and compulsive destructive behaviors such as gambling. SMART was developed from cognitive behavioral therapy principles. SMART teaches self-empowerment and self-reliance. You can learn a lot about SMART from their main website. Check it out here . If you are concerned about your behavior and think you can benefit from our program please stop by a local meeting. Meetings are free, but we do pass the hat for donations.
