The Island Counseling Center will begin a new recovery group in March designed to empower individuals to abstain from substance use and develop a more positive lifestyle.
What is SMART Recovery?
SMART Recovery utilizes ideas and techniques to help individuals change their lives from one that is self-destructive and unhappy to one that is constructive and satisfying. SMART Recovery is not a spin-off of Alcoholics Anonymous. SMART Recovery teaches common sense self-help procedures designed to empower you to abstain and to develop a more positive lifestyle.
SMART Recovery emphasizes:
(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.
The group will meet on Fridays, beginning March 9th at Island Images/Crossroads Gallery from 6:30pm-7:30pm. Please contact Brian Morris with any questions: 508-693-7900 x411
