For those struggling with addiction who for one reason or another are not fan of the 12-step program, there is an alternative to the 12-step program. For these skeptics of the 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 support 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
Florida Center for Recovery (FCR) is a registered SMART RECOVERY® facility offering the #1 alternative non-12-step addiction recovery programs to residents and prospective residents.
FCR’s SMART RECOVERY® meets every Friday from 4 pm to 5 pm (unless previously noted otherwise). Please contact our facility for more information in case you are not part of our inpatient rehab programs and would like more information about our addiction treatment programs.
