What is SMART Recovery?

SMART Recovery groups are a great FREE option to get support from your peers, learn coping skills, and take control of your life to make healthy changes.  Through the ASSERT Program, the State of Connecticut has funded SMART Recovery groups for teens and young adults across Connecticut, as well as SMART Family & Friends.

The TurningPointCT.org Resource Map was made by a team of young people across the state to develop a map of social, recreational, and clinical resources for young people around the state. Now it’s your turn! Please add in clubs, hangouts, youth groups, or whatever resources you think everyone should know about! You can also find programs and services you’ve used and give your rating or add comments.

As a bonus, the national SMARTRecovery.com network hosts groups across the United States everyday. If the times and locations of the Connecticut groups don’t fit into your schedule you can join one from anywhere in the US, click here for more info.
