SMART Recovery Meeting

Next Date: Monday, February 17, 9:30 AM
Location: 214, CRC, Iowa Memorial Union (IMU)

SMART Recovery® is an abstinence-based, not- for-profit organization with a sensible self-help program for people having problems with drinking and using. It includes many ideas and techniques to help you change your life from one that is self-destructive and unhappy to one that is constructive and satisfying.

SMART Recovery®
is not a spin-off from Alcoholics Anonymous. No one will label you an "alcoholic", an “addict” or “diseased” nor “powerless”, and if you do not believe in a religion or spirituality, that's fine, too. We teach common sense self-help procedures designed to empower you to abstain and to develop a more positive lifestyle.

In SMART Recovery® we emphasize:
(1) Enhancing motivation;
(2) Refusing to act on urges to use;
(3) Managing life's problems in a sensible and effective way without substances; and
(4) Developing a positive, balanced, and healthy lifestyle.
