March 28, 2011 - PRLog -- Dr. Robert Meyers, creator of The Community Reinforcement Approach and Family Training (CRAFT) intervention, and co-author of the book Get Your Loved One Sober: Alternatives to Nagging, Pleading and Threatening, will be a special Guest Speaker at the Monday, April 18th SMART Recovery online meeting for Family & Friends.  Dr. Meyers will address topics related to CRAFT, as well as answer questions from the meeting participants.

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.  To access the meeting room:  Register for SMART Recovery Online – in advance.  Once registered, access the SMART Message Board (you can also access the message boards through the main site menus).  When logged in, select “SMART Recovery Chat and Meeting Rooms” – the blue drop-down bar near the top left of the page.  From there, you can select The Voice Meeting Room.  (Note: you do not need a microphone -- you can listen type any comments or questions you have.)
