For over six years, Kathy Lang has been an online SMART facilitator for Family & Friends. In a former career, Kathy was a social worker. It wasn’t until coping with a family member’s addiction, that she realized the information and help available to family and friends through SMART Recovery.
Kathy completed the facilitator training program and began facilitating meetings. She saw, firsthand, how impactful these meetings are but knows there is still more work to be done in breaking the stigmas associated with addiction recovery.
Kathy knows that the SMART Family & Friends meetings will continue to grow and make a difference in the lives of everyone touched by addiction.

About SMART Recovery Family & Friends
SMART Recovery Family & Friends helps those who are affected by substance abuse, drug abuse, alcohol abuse, or other addictions of a loved one. Our program is a science-based, secular alternative to Al-Anon and the Johnson Intervention, and our method is based on the tools of SMART Recovery and CRAFT (Community Reinforcement and Family Training). CRAFT aims to teach family and friends self-protection and non-confrontational communication skills to help their addicted loved one find recovery.
