Help For You and Your Loved Ones With Addictions

About this event

Are you looking for resources to help you support someone struggling with addiction? Is someone else’s addiction negatively affecting you? Perhaps you’re seeking an alternative to tough love? We provide effective, easy-to-learn tools to help both you and your loved one. Our methods are based on the tools of SMART Recovery and CRAFT Therapy (Community Reinforcement & Family Training). Our meetings — available both in-person and online — provide concerned significant others the tools they need to effectively support their loved ones, without supporting the addictive behaviour. These tools also help Family & Friends better cope with their loved one’s situation and regain their peace of mind.

How can SMART Recovery help me stop alcohol abuse?

SMART Recovery provides you with tools and support that can help you recover from addictions – be it alcohol abuse, or other drugs or negative behaviours. SMART Recovery’s 4-Point Program® is designed to help you overcome your problems with abusing alcohol and help you to quit drinking:

1. Building & Maintaining Motivation – Helps you identify and keep up with your reasons to quit. Why do you want to stop drinking – what will keep you focused on that goal?

2. Coping with Urges – Dealing with urges and cravings is part of recovery. SMART has tools designed to help our members cope with urges to drink alcohol that can help you maintain abstinence.

3. Managing Thoughts, Feelings and Behaviours – We frequently turn to using drugs to either escape from or avoid addressing problems. SMART Recovery participants learn problem-solving tools to help them manage challenges along the way.

4. Living a Balanced Life– When you abuse alcohol, your life frequently falls out of balance – you may find yourself opting to drink rather than go to work or school. You may find that things you once enjoyed aren’t fun anymore. SMART give members skills to help balance both short and long-term goals, pleasures and needs that were once out of balance due to drug abuse.
