What is SMART Recovery?

SMART stands for Self Management and Recovery Training. It is a program of recovery from substance use disorders and compulsive destructive behaviors such as gambling. SMART was developed from cognitive behavioral therapy principles. SMART teaches self-empowerment and self-reliance. You can learn a lot about SMART from their main website. Check it out here. There is a SMART site for Los Angeles County here. San Diego County is the home of Tom Horvath, past President of SMART. The area is a hub of SMART activity. Their meetings page is extensive and includes some Friends and Family meetings. Check them out here.

If you are concerned about your behavior and think you can benefit from our program please stop by a local meeting. Meetings are free, open to anyone and participation is optional.
