SMART Recovery Meeting

Next Date: Monday, November 18, 9:30 AM
Location: 214, CRC, Iowa Memorial Union (IMU)

SMART Recovery Meetings are highly interactive, conversational and educational, enabling all participants to share their successes and challenges and receive guidance from others. Meetings are action-oriented, positive and focused on the present and future.

SMART is designed to help people find the power to change within themselves. The discussion at meetings is centered around the SMART 4-Point Program: 1. Build and Maintain Motivation. 2. Cope with Urges. 3. Manage Thoughts, Feelings, and Behaviors. 4. Lead a Balanced Life.

SMART uses principles, practices, and tools from disciplines with proven effectiveness in treating problematic addictive behavior, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing.

NOTE*** If you are in an Introduction to Substance Abuse course and need to attend a recovery event, this is not an appropriate meeting to attend for course credit. For more information, email Karen Grajczyk.
