Providing young people the self-empowering, no shame, no blame support they need and deserve.

Do you help young adults dealing with addiction in an educational or support setting, such as a high school, university, or recovery community organization?

If so, then you know how important and challenging this work is.

The stigma around addiction and the fear of being judged as powerless and labeled as an addict, alcoholic, etc., often prevents young adults from seeking help.

SMART Recovery offers a modern solution: a peer-support program that uses a self-empowering approach to addiction recovery. We’ve found that this approach and our 4-Point Program® resonate with young adults.

We will work with you to create a plan that meets your specific needs. Our training options for SMART Meeting Facilitators include your choice of onsite group training or a convenient self-study online training option for individuals. For information about group training, please call our office (440-951-5357). Click here to register for individual training.

Let’s work together to benefit as many young lives as we can.
