It looks like pretty effective content to me. Thanks a lot!
I’m a member of SMART Recovery in Rhode Island, and with its tools and principles I’ve recently hit 3 years of sobriety. I have even begun the facilitators training course to be able to pay it forward. Is there a way to nominate someone for the facilitator spotlight? The facilitator of the meeting I attend is one of a kind in his approach and in 3 years I’ve witnessed his ability to motivate and change lives. There has also been at least 4 members of our meeting that have now themselves become facilitators and are currently running their own meetings extending the reach of SMART Recovery in our community. SMART changed my life and I would love to spotlight Mike DeStefano from Rhode Island.
Thank you for the nomination. It’s wonderful to hear that Mike has made such a positive impact in your life and in your recovery.
His name will be forwarded to the MARCOM team for consideration.
