There’s life beyond addiction. SMART Recovery can help you get there.

The Fletcher Group is proud to partner with SMART Recovery, an international non-profit that provides assistance to individuals seeking abstinence from addiction. (SMART stands for Self-Management and Recovery Training.)

About SMART Recovery

SMART Recovery is an abstinence-oriented, not-for-profit organization for individuals with addictive problems. Their self-empowering mutual support meetings focus on ideas and techniques that help an individual change one’s life from one that’s self-destructive and unhappy to one that’s constructive and satisfying. Based on what addiction science has shown to be effective, SMART Recovery teaches coping skills that work well both short- and long-term. Recovery focuses on present-day events and the causes of self-destructive behaviors.

Awareness and Change

SMART Recovery’s approach to behavioral change is built around a 4-Point Program®:

  • Building and maintaining the motivation to change
  • Coping with urges to use
  • Managing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in an effective way without addictive behaviors
  • Living a balanced, positive, and healthy life.

SMART Recovery Meetings

The meeting format is straight forward and organized. Facilitators are trained to follow the SMART Recovery program and principles with  meeting discussions focused on how to apply SMART’s tools for change so people can lead more productive and connected lives.


How We’re Working Together

Having already supported over 3,500 face-to-face mutual-support groups and over 250 monthly online meetings, SMART Recovery recently partnered with The Fletcher Group Rural Center of Excellence with the goal of bringing SMART Recovery’s programs, tools, and Successful Life Skills Handbook to over 100 rural recovery homes.
