SMART Recovery is a fresh approach to addiction recovery. SMART stands for Self-Management and Recovery Training. This is more than an acronym: it is a transformative method of moving from addictive substances and negative behaviors to a life of positive self-regard and willingness to change.
Our Invitation to Change Approach® (ITC) is full of techniques that do work—with an enormous amount of research to back them up. In place of the stigmatizing understandings of addiction that are so common and so harmful, the ITC responds to substance use with evidence-based methods for improving communication, strengthening motivation to reduce or stop using substances, and practicing compassion and self-care to create the conditions for change.
