What people are saying

“I’m feeling all kinds of freedom that I had not experienced in the past. I fell like I’m growing, stretching and learning. There has been a lot of internal progress, and I am so grateful for my time at SMART Recovery. SMART Recovery Online is really a home base for me… my touchstone. Community meetings have been beneficial to me as well. I have some good long lapses, but I have always stayed in touch online. And I’ve had some darn good successes – I’m now 2+ years sober and continuing to grow.” – D.C. “”[The program] was very helpful. I like how it built on itself as I went along.
