Thank you for considering a donation to support SMART Recovery! For more than 25 years, SMART Recovery has helped individuals around the world break free from addictive substances or activities. Your donation to SMART Recovery helps to provide the latest scientific, evidence-based recovery services, training, and empowerment programs free of charge.

Globally and locally, we are dealing with an unprecedented drug and alcohol abuse crisis. Less visible but equally prevalent are addictive behaviors such as gambling, food disorders, sexual misbehavior, anger, domestic violence, social media, and technology. SMART Recovery has helped and will continue to help individuals break free from their addictive behaviors. Your financial support will help to expand our efforts.

Financial support options include our annual fund, special events, memorials, tributes, and planned giving gifts. SMART Recovery will celebrate our 25th anniversary this September at our Silver Anniversary Conference: Celebrate our Past, Present and Future. Sponsorship and program advertisements are available. For more information, please visit the 25th Silver Anniversary National Conference Sponsorship & Donation page.


  • Growth: In 2018 we surpassed 3,000 meetings, impacting hundreds of thousands of individuals around the world.More than 2,000 of these meetings take place in the US.
  • Technology: With ZOOM and Discord technology, we offer more than 35 online meetings for those who cannot or choose to not attend in-person meetings. This technology helps overcome obstacles such as lack of transportation or child care, underserved areas, and preferred anonymity. Our online meetings are accessible via any mobile device.
  • Volunteer Training: Each year SMART Recovery offers scholarships to volunteers who wish to be trained as meeting facilitators. This April, as part of National Volunteer Month, we received nearly 375 scholarship requests, doubling our 2018 total.

We invite you to learn more about SMART Recovery’s impact by reading our Fast Facts and Annual Report.
