Is addiction affecting you
or someone you love?
Get SMART on Staten Island.
SMART Recovery helps anyone wanting to abstain from any type of addictive behavior, substance or activity. SMART Recovery Family & Friends helps Concerned Significant Others (CSOs) of those troubled with addiction develop more helpful ways of responding to their loved one’s problematic behaviors and appreciate the importance of self-care.
SMART Recovery is a free, nonprofit, science-based, self-empowering recovery program. A non-step model, SMART offers an alternative to AA. SMART gives support by teaching how to change self-defeating thinking, emotions, and action, and how to work towards long-term satisfaction and quality of life.
SMART Recovery advocates choice, so that those seeking recovery can choose what works best for them from a ‘toolbox’ of methods and approaches. SMART Recovery’s tools are based on scientifically-tested methods, such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Motivational Interviewing.
The SMART approach:
Teaches tools and techniques for self-directed change,
Teaches self-empowerment and self-reliance,
Encourages individuals to recover and live satisfying lives,
Advocates the appropriate use of prescribed medications and psychological treatments.
The SMART Family & Friends approach:
Explores tools for CSOs to develop coping strategies for a loved one’s addictive behavior,
Helps CSOs find a greater sense of fulfillment in their own lives,
Fosters healthier interactions with their loved one, increasing chances they will seek recovery,
Explores CRAFT (Community Reinforcement and Family Training).
