Need Urgent HelpExperiencing suicidal thoughts or severe withdrawal symptoms?

This page is designed to help you find the assistance you may need if you encounter a crisis.

Volunteers at SMART Recovery stand ready to assist you with your addictive behavior issues, and to help you to learn the program's tools and techniques for overcoming addictive behaviors.

However, our volunteers are not trained to assist with suicidal tendencies, withdrawal issues, etc., which often merit immediate medical or professional assistance.
