Are you worried about your drug or alcohol use, or any other addictions? Do you want to regain control of your life? Try SMART Recovery® a science based, secular and self empowering program.
SMART Recovery® offers a secular scientific alternative if you are seeking independence from alcohol, drugs, sex, gambling and other addictive behaviors. You learn to live a balanced lifestyle and free yourself from addiction. We are not saying that it is easy – but it’s maybe easier than you think to break free from a destructive lifestyle.
