For those struggling with addiction who for one reason or another are not fan of 12-step program, there is an alternative to 12-step program. For these skeptics of 12-step who need the formal rehab program to manage their recovery there is SMART Recovery®. SMART recovery stands for Self-Management and Recovery Training. This approach relies on building a community of support to help people manage their own recovery and the aim is to increase the addict’s self-reliance through education and supportive meetings. SMART Recovery®, is created by physician Joseph Gerstein in 1992, and it includes a four-point program:

  • Coping with Urges

  • Managing Thoughts, Feelings and Behaviors

  • Living a Balanced Life
