Self-management & recovery training for addiction.
Why SMART Recovery?
Certainly in my personal experience, and the experience of many others, an anxiety condition often walks hand-in-hand with alcohol/substance abuse. Initially as a coping mechanism, then as a self-destructive habit.
I am a certified SMART Recovery Facilitator. I can help.
What Is SMART Recovery?
A global community of 3000 mutual-support groups in which participants meet weekly to help each other overcome the life challenges caused by any addiction (to drugs, alcohol and behaviours such as gambling).
Using SMART (Self-Management and Recovery Training), they find the power within themselves to change and lead fulfilling and balanced lives guided by a science-based and sensible 4-Point Program®.
