Smart Recovery

About Our Organisation
Our Purpose
To empower people with practical skills, tools and support so that they may manage their addictive behaviour and lead satisfying and meaningful lives.
Our Philosophy
People make a choice to engage in addictive behaviours and can make a choice to stop.
Everyone has the power of choice and can choose to change unhelpful or harmful behaviours.
People are not their behaviours, so stigmatising language like ‘addict’ and ‘alcoholic’ is not used.
People seeking recovery are empowered to choose what works best for them from a ‘tool box’ of methods demonstrated in meetings and also available online and in manuals.
Participants are free to engage with any other services or mutual-aid groups which they find helpful; there is no one path to recovery.
Once a healthy, positive and balanced lifestyle is achieved participants are free to move on and pursue other goals in life. Some may choose to volunteer and train to become Meeting Facilitators.
