UK SMART Recovery has built up a huge library of materials to support people in recovery and make SMART meetings effective. This includes articles, tools, videos, podcasts, manuals and handbooks. In addition, we link to other material not owned by SMART Recovery but still useful to people who use our meetings.
Most of these materials are available free for download after you register on the site, some are for purchase, a few are only for our trained Facilitators or Champions.
HOW SMART RECOVERY DEVELOPS MATERIALS.
SMART is a science based programme and evolves as the science evolves. We work as a partnership between people in recovery and professionals, including psychologists and researchers in addiction. The programme evolves out of a dialogue between these groups, with the professionals keeping track of developments in the science of addiction (what research suggests will probably work) and a large team of facilitators who feedback on what is practical and effective in our meetings. We also have an International Board of Advisors with some of the most well respected researchers into addiction from whom we can seek advise if needed.
