SMART Recovery Handbook, 3rd Edition
This is the 3rd edition of the SMART Recovery Handbook, edited specifically for the UK. It will be useful to meeting participants who want a stronger understanding of the ideas and tools used in SMART Recovery and includes most of the hand-outs and written exercises we use in meetings.
Most people will not read this Handbook from cover to cover, but rather use it as a topic-by-topic reference to answer questions as they move through their recovery journey. The worksheets can be freely photocopied by Facilitators to use in meetings.
You will need a credit card to purchase online and we aim to make these available to Facilitators to sell within meetings. We will send a free copy to all Facilitators and
Champions who are currently running meetings. If you are interested in a bulk order please get in touch with the central office to discuss discounts.
SMART Family & Friends Handbook
Are you looking to help a loved one with an addiction?
Is someone else’s addiction negatively affecting you?
Designed for people affected by the addictive behavior of a loved one, this 138-page Handbook contains 14 sections with a wide range of topics including Change and Motivation, Positive Communication, Healthy Boundaries, Safety, and Support, Coping with Lapses, Disable the Enabling, Trust and Forgiveness – and much more. It can be used in conjunction with attendance at SMART Family & Friends (F&F) online or community meetings, or on its own.
The Handbook includes SMART Recovery’s tools for coping in a healthy way with the many emotionally challenging situations frequently encountered in relationships where addiction is a factor. A Family & Friends meeting participant states: “I came to SMART to get help dealing with my partner’s addiction. What I got are tools that help me deal more effectively with almost every aspect of MY life.”
Additionally, the Handbook incorporates the principles of the evidence-based CRAFT (Community Reinforcement and Family Training) approach. Studies have shown CRAFT to be significantly more effective than either Al-Anon or Johnson interventions for getting addicted individuals into treatment.
SMART Recovery Teen & Youth Handbook
Originally developed by a grant by the Community Coalition for Teens in Greenfield, Massachusetts, then expanded via a grant from Juvenile Justice in Australia, this Handbook for Teens and Youth takes the reader through the SMART Recovery 4-Point Program and tools in a captivating manner, including increased graphics and visual appeal.
The simple cover keeps the contents discreet for the reader to carry.
