Dr. Robert Meyers Guest Speaker at SMART Recovery Family & Friends Meeting
Community Reinforcement Approach and Family Training creator and co-author of the book Get Your Loved One Sober: Alternatives to Nagging, Pleading and Threatening to appear as guest speaker at April 18th Family & Friends Meeting.
The SMART Recovery Family & Friends meeting (designed for individuals who have a loved one with an addiction) offers a unique blend of weekly discussions in an interactive environment. The meetings use topics from Dr. Meyers’ book, CRAFT concepts, and SMART Recovery tools to assist Family & Friends. One participant recently stated: "Due to the support from SMART Recovery, I've witnessed my husband switching from a very concerning self-destructive behavior to a much healthier relationship with life. Being a healthcare professional, I know that the success rate of recovery from maladaptive behaviors is low. The SMART Recovery program is playing an important role in the success of my husband's recovery process." Join in any Monday evening at 9:00 PM Eastern time.
The meeting with special guest Dr. Meyers will take place in the SMART Recovery Voice Meeting Room from 9:00 – 10:30 p.m. Eastern Time on April 18th. All are welcome.
