Counselor, LIMHP, LMHP, LADC
"SMART Recovery is an abstinence-based, not-for-profit organization with a sensible self-help program for people having problems with drug and alcohol use. 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. 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".
