When someone with an alcohol use disorder makes the decision to give up alcohol, it requires a permanent life change. After detox, the recovery process includes lifestyle changes and creating a support system.
While the most known program is Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and the 12 Step program, this faith-based program doesn’t work for everyone. SMART Recovery is an abstinence-oriented, not-for-profit organization for individuals struggling with addiction.
Their science-based program focuses on self-empowerment and teaches the skills required to achieve self-directed change. It is open to anyone suffering from alcohol abuse, substance abuse, drug addiction, or any other type of addiction.
