SMART Recovery Family & Friends program is a scientific evidence based secular program. Our method is based on the Rational Emotive and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. This approach assists those who are willing to make a change and encourages positive reinforcement for the individual with the addiction problem.

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