Welcome to SMART Recovery NYC! SMART stands for Self-Management And Recovery Training.

We offer mutual support meetings that are free and open to anyone seeking to abstain from any type of addictive behavior, including:

We represent SMART Recovery in New York City by organizing, scheduling, conducting, and promoting SMART Recovery meetings and other activities. SMART Recovery is a volunteer-run self-help mutual support group, not professional therapy.

A full meeting calendar for the NY Metro Area is here. For meetings in other areas, see this page on SMART Recovery’s national site.

For additional support online in the form of forums as well as live voice- and text-chat meetings, visit SMART Online.

If you are a friend or family member of someone with an addictive behavior, SMART’s national office has resources you can use to help yourself as well your loved one. See SMART’s Family and Friends page for more information. SMART Recovery NYC does not currently offer face-to-face Family and Friends meetings, but we hope to offer them in the future. If you would like to volunteer to help start one, please let us know through our volunteer contact form.
