Clients from Sunshine Coast Health Center come from all over Canada and return to communities that offer SMART Recovery.
(PRWEB) July 30, 2015
Sunshine Coast Health Center, one of Canada's top-rated drug rehabilitation and alcohol treatment centers, is proud to announce participation in the SMART Recovery methodology to treat substance abuse. SMART Recovery is the leading self-empowering addiction recovery support group. It is of particular note in that it is a "non Twelve step" methodology, compatible with the methods used by Sunshine Coast Health Center.
"We have recently had four staff trained as facilitators for SMART recovery meetings, and meetings running onsite in our Powell River, British Columbia, center will run once a week," explained Daniel Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. "Clients from Sunshine Coast Health Center come from all over Canada and return to communities that offer SMART Recovery meetings and/or may even start their own groups."

About SMART Recovery
SMART is a secular peer support option for people trying to maintain a recovery from substance use disorder (addiction), with a public website at http://www.smartrecovery.org/. Unlike Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous, SMART is secular and uses a workbook with exercises that attendees work through at their own pace. All Sunshine Coast Health Center SMART meeting attendees will be provided with a free workbook that they can take home. SMART is described as a self graduating program.
