SMART Recovery (SMART) is a science-based programme to help people manage their recovery from any type of addictive behaviour. This includes addictive behaviour with substances such as alcohol, nicotine or drugs, or compulsive behaviours such as gambling, sex, eating, shopping, self-harming and so on. SMART stands for ‘Self Management And Recovery Training’.

SMART Recovery offers both face-to-face and online meetings. The big advantage of online meetings is for people who do not have a local meeting, though some people also like the anonymity. We currently have meetings most days,  and our friends in the USA also run meetings.
