SMART Recovery Meetings in Halifax, Nova Scotia

SMART Recovery is an abstinence-based, not-for-profit organization with a sensible self-help program for people having problems with drinking and using. It includes many ideas and techniques to help you change your life from one that is self-destructive and unhappy to one that is constructive and satisfying. SMART Recovery is not a spin-off of Alcoholics Anonymous. No one will label you an “alcoholic”, an “addict” or “diseased” nor “powerless”, and if you do not believe in a religion or spirituality, that’s fine, too. We teach common sense self-help procedures designed to empower you to abstain and to develop a more positive lifestyle. When you succeed at following our approach, you may graduate from the program, or you may stay around to help others.

Searidge Drug Rehab offers a variety of aftercare programs to the residents of Halifax to help ensure their sobriety is sustained. SMART recovery group meetings have proven to be incredibly beneficial to our Searidge alumni , one-on-one counseling, and group therapy are others that make up the comprehensive aftercare program offered in Nova Scotia. Over the phone and especially in-person meetings offer Halifax residents the tools and support they require to remain drug free.
