SMART Recovery welcomes people addressing any addictive behavior. Our meetings last ninety minutes and operate in a workshop-like atmosphere. A volunteer facilitator leads each session and encourages discussion. You may choose to participate, or just sit back and listen.

At each meeting, you will have an opportunity to learn and practice skills you can then use on your own. The meetings are free and confidential, but we pass the hat to meet our expenses.

All meetings start with a brief check-in, followed by open discussion. An exercise or concept related to the 4 Points of SMART is usually then reviewed. Meetings usually end with a check-out.

"When applied persistently and with effort, this program can help you successfully recover, taking back your life from harmful addictions." - Henry Steinberger PH.D
