Position on Meeting Verifications
SMART Recovery is an independent organization and is not affiliated with any governmental agency, court, corrections facility, or treatment program. Facilitators, at their discretion, will provide attendance verification at the request of individuals following their participation in SMART meetings; however, SMART Recovery keeps no permanent record of participant names or meeting attendance.
Consistent with the practices of other addiction mutual help groups, this verification provides acknowledgment of meeting attendance, and is not indicative of the depth of engagement in the meeting.
