For Family & Friends

Supporting the Supporters

SMART Recovery Family & Friends meetings support those who are affected by the addictive problems of a loved one. Learn how to talk with your loved one, and how to take care of yourself. These meetings are free and open to anyone. No one is required to participate. All you have to do is show up!

Family & Friends meetings offer facilitated discussions and use SMART Recovery concepts and Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT)-based strategies to help participants navigate their relationships with loved ones who are struggling with addictive behaviors of any kind. Participation in these meetings is confidential as are all of the topics discussed.

You’ll find additional resources for family and friends on SMART Recovery’s National website and in the Family & Friends workbook.
