SMART Recovery

Great News for Your Recovery Home!

Free Training Plus $1,200

Thanks to the generous support of the Elevance Health Foundation, the Fletcher Group is now able to offer a $1,200 stipend to recovery homes and other community-based recovery programs that wish to implement SMART Recovery’s evidence-based Successful LifeSkills training program.


A Proven Evidence-Based Program

The Successful Life Skills program uses evidence-based methods to help people find within themselves the power to change. Proven effective in over 100 countries, the training—including materials and equipment—can now be yours free of charge together with a $1,200 stipend that can be used any way you like.

Residents or staff who complete the program can also earn a SMART Recovery Trainer’s Certificate that allows them to facilitate the program so others can benefit.

Funded by the Elevance Health Foundation, this program specifically targets recovery homes in California, New York, Georgia, Virginia, Ohio, and Indiana. But recovery homes and community-based recovery programs in other states are encouraged to apply and will be accepted on a case-by-case basis.

To apply, simply click the button to the right. Our staff will then contact you to provide you with whatever information and assistance you may need.
