PRLog - Nov. 20, 2012 - MENTOR, Ohio -- SMART Recovery has announced the release of its latest publication: The SMART Recovery Family & Friends Handbook.

As part of an ongoing project to provide support for concerned significant others, SMART Recovery (Self-Management and Recovery Training) provides weekly online meetings and message board support for people who have a loved one struggling with an addictive behavior. The meetings use a combination of SMART Recovery tools and CRAFT (Community Reinforcement and Family Training) concepts.

The Handbook, designed for people affected by the addictive behavior of a loved one is 138 pages and contains sections with a wide range of topics including: Change and Motivation, Healthy Boundaries, Positive Communication, Safety and Support, Coping with Lapses, Disable the Enabling, Trust and Forgiveness – and much more.

Concerned significant others are invited to participate in SMART’s online activities for Family & Friends – the message board and the online meetings. Family & Friends participants regularly tout the helpfulness of the program.

“I came to SMART to get help dealing with my partner's addiction. What I got are tools that help me deal more effectively with almost every aspect of MY life. And the online SMART community is a wonderful place to make friends and get support.”

SMART Recovery Family & Friends is a science-based, secular alternative to Al-Anon and Johnson Intervention. It uses methods based on the tools of SMART Recovery and CRAFT to provide resources and support for those who are affected by the addictions of a loved one.
