WHAT IS SMART RECOVERY?
- May 31, 2018
SMART Recovery® is a registered non-profit addiction recovery support group that relies on scientific research and group therapy to help individuals become more self-empowered. In this sense, SMART Recovery® runs directly counter to the many 12-step programs that require the individual to admit their powerlessness over their addiction.
The acronym SMART stands for Self-Management And Recovery Training and the program focuses on the following four points:
- Building and maintaining motivation
- Coping with urges
- Managing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors
- Living a balanced life
The program is intended to give individuals tools to address each point.
SMART Recovery® is approved for the treatment of a variety of addictions, including both behavioral addictions and substance addictions. Substance addiction is a progressive disease which means that it will continue to grow worse as time goes by. If you are worried that you or someone you love may be developing a substance addiction, you should speak to a certified addiction specialist at the earliest opportunity.
The Asana Recovery Center offers a supervised detoxification and residential treatment program in a supportive, relaxing, and inspiring environment designed to help those battling any stage of substance addiction.
