Family & Friends 3

Addiction is a family problem. We have solutions for those problems. We welcome you twice a month on Wednesday Night for a Family & Friends Support Meeting 

At the Locke Library, 3083 Yonge St.  Time: 7-8pm

This month we meet on November 14th & 28th. 

NOTE: Holidays next month – we meet two weeks in a row on December 12th & 19th

SMART Recovery Family & Friends program is a scientific evidence based secular alternative to Al-Anon and the Johnson Intervention. Our method is based on the Rational Emotive and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy tools combined with the positive reinforcement components of CRAFT Community Reinforcement Approach Family Training and Motivational Interviewing Techniques. This approach assists those who are willing to make a change and helps to rebuild communication bonds in the family.

SMART Recovery Family & Friends Handbook is available for $20 at the meeting.
