Morningside Recovery happily offers SMART Recovery groups as one of our many group therapy options. Self-Management and Recovery Training is a self-empowering, science-based recovery program. It advocates for the individual to take responsibility for their actions. It also encourages them to find answers and power within themselves to overcome bad habits.
The goal of SMART Recovery is to help individuals become self-reliant by:
- Building their motivation
- Teaching them coping skills
- Helping them self-manage thoughts, feelings, and behaviors
- Encouraging a balance in lifestyle
More About Morningside Recovery
At Morningside Recovery, this increasingly popular approach to recovery has been adapted to our clinical setting, with structured group meetings facilitated by a specially trained counselor on a weekly basis. During meetings, clients share how SMART Recovery techniques helped them in the past week or how they may have struggled with urges or activating events, so they can examine them as a group. With this participatory exercise and simple decision-based “homework,” each individual learns how to apply SMART Recovery reasoning to their own lives.
Morningside Recovery strives to expose clients to as many therapeutic experiences and skill sets as possible in order to treat the individual according to their subjective needs. SMART Recovery is not for everyone, as it is considered a secular, logic-based view of recovery. However, those who feel helpless in the face of their mental illness or addiction can learn to accept accountability. They can also experience empowerment to change themselves through this 12-Step alternative model. This helps make SMART Recovery a unique and viable approach to recovery. In conjunction with our numerous treatment modalities, Morningside Recovery finds the model to be an effective aid.
