ONSITE & ZOOM FACILITATOR TRAINING

Onsite & Zoom Training

The difference is not in the training… it’s just in how we do it!

SMART Recovery is unique in the way we support those desiring to abstain from various forms of addictive behavior. We aim to introduce multiple pathways to recovery providing individuals with the ability to make healthy choices for their recovery. The way we train groups to use SMART Recovery with clients or as meeting facilitators is also unique. We feel our recovery concepts, tools and meeting facilitation quality play a significant role in helping individuals abstain from their addictive behavior.

If you have the need or desire to train 10 or more individuals within your organization, we have tailored a live, onsite training program to meet your needs. We also have the option of Zoom training for your organization to allow you to experience live group training while remaining socially distant.
