GSF 301: SMART Recovery for Professionals

Professional Training

The GSF 301: SMART RECOVERY FOR PROFESSIONALS training course is designed to provide you an in-depth and comprehensive training on the SMART Recovery 4-Point Program, the SMART Recovery tools... and MORE! You'll gain the necessary knowledge to proceed capably, comfortably (and authoritatively) in presenting the SMART Recovery program and tools to those you work with in your professional role.


If you have previously completed the GSF 201: Facilitator Training course, you've already been "trained" to use the SMART Recovery program with your clients and there is no need for you to complete this training course. 

Course Information

All of the training materials are provided online within the course, so there's no additional purchase of course materials required. Click here to view the Course Syllabus & Outline. Upon registering you'll receive a confirmation email containing instructions and your access and account information, so you'll be able to get started right away.

The training is entirely self-study (with exception to the optional "live" online training meetings available). We’ve estimated the “self-study” portion to take approximately 25 hours to complete. This is done at your own pace and at times convenient to you. The only deadline is the training needs to be completed within the 180-day enrollment period, which begins immediately upon registration.

There's also instances of “live” online training meetings available for you to attend. These (optional) meetings take place on various days and times every month. See the course calendar or the Upcoming events block for the scheduled meeting dates and times.

When asked to submit their evaluation, past participants have continually given our training program high marks, finding it to be extremely beneficial in expanding the reach of SMART Recovery to their local area or facility.
