SMART Recovery Tools for Recovery

2. SMART Recovery® Online Library

The SMART Recovery Online Library is an excellent place to study SMART concepts, or Tools, which are the cornerstone of the SMART philosophy. Within this area of the site, Tools and Homework is a useful place to start.

The tools and concepts are discussed extensively in the online meetings, in chat, and on the message board, so feel free to dig in and get a head start, if you choose!

Many people who come to SMART start by doing a Cost-Benefit Analysis of their addiction.

Recovery Chat Meetings

3. Text Chat Room and Online Meetings

The SMART Chat Room is open 24 hours per day, seven days a week. Because our members are all over the world, there is almost always someone in the chat room. You may find a casual or joking atmosphere when you enter the room. However, if you have issues or want information, just tell us. SMART members and volunteers alike will be glad to help you.

Please Note: Registration on the Messageboard is required for access to the Chat Rooms and Meetings!
