SMART Recovery has reached 1100+ meetings worldwide via a distance volunteer training program for meeting Facilitators. Jurgens is a graduate of the distance training and recently enrolled a number of volunteers via his Faces & Voices network to train and to help to begin meetings in South Africa.
SMART Recovery meetings consist of various activities and tools aimed at helping individuals understand and correct the connection between their irrational beliefs, actions and consequences. A variety of tools are provided within the 4-Point Program® and ways of handling motivation, urges, emotional upsets, etc. are discussed and then practiced by participants.
Faces & Voices of Recovery SA is a non-profit organization focused on recovery from alcohol and other drug problems. They serve as a resource to help individuals, families, schools, workplaces and communities improve wellbeing.
