April is Volunteer Month!
Do you want to be a part of the solution to the growing epidemic of addiction? Do you want to help others overcome addiction and go on to live fulfilling and meaningful lives? Then become a SMART Recovery volunteer!
Volunteers are the heart of SMART Recovery, working together to empower people to break free from addiction every day. The gift of their time, skill, knowledge and compassion is invaluable.
Training Scholarships Available
Addiction is a wide-ranging problem that does not discriminate. Approximately one in every 10 Americans over the age of 12 has an addiction of some sort. They are our moms, dads, sisters, brothers, friends, and many never get the treatment or support they need.
Recovering from addiction can be quite difficult and research shows that many people benefit from peer support to make it happen. A key for each person is to find a support program that meets their unique needs.
SMART Recovery is “science-based”, built on a foundation of tools based on cognitive behavioral therapy methods. Our meetings are self-empowering and solution-focused. For many people, our approach meets their needs in ways that other programs do not.
Unfortunately, SMART meetings may be in limited supply in your area.
You can change that by becoming a SMART Recovery volunteer!
Our training program ensures our volunteers have the knowledge and tools that they need to confidently lead weekly support group meetings.

Scholarships for training are available
All SMART facilitators and online volunteers are required to become thoroughly familiar with the SMART 4-Point Program® by participating in our Online Facilitator Training Program. Volunteer training scholarships are available during April to cover the cost of the training for those who need financial assistance.
