Welcome to the New England chapter of SMART Recovery®.

Perhaps the most helpful part of our program is the meetings which are free, and open to anyone who
would like to attend. Each meeting is led by a trained facilitator. There is no need to sign up first – just come on in!

SMART Recovery® is an abstinence-oriented program designed to help any individual find solutions to any addictive behavior. It is science-based, which means you will learn some of what scientists know about your problem(s), and learn effective and practical ways to deal with them.
