SMART Recovery is the World’s leading self-empowering addiction recovery support group. Our participants learn tools for addiction recovery based on the latest scientific research and participate in free, self-empowering, science-based mutual help groups.

SMART Recovery’s 4-Point Program® helps people recover from all types of addictive behaviors, including: alcoholism, drug abuse, gambling addiction, and addiction to other substances and activities.

SMART Recovery (Self-Management And Recovery Training) is not a 12-step group, like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).

SMART Recovery® is based on evidence influenced, cognitive – behavioral methods, particularly Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT). SMART Recovery believes a persons religious or spiritual convictions are a personal matter that can be helpful for some, but are not discussed at SMART Recovery meetings (for inclusivity). SMART Recovery teaches people practical, proven self-management and recovery skills.
