MENTOR, Ohio - March 15, 2013 - PRLog -- The SMART Recovery 4-Point Program® has long been helpful to adults addressing addictive behaviors. Now the program is being offered to teens and youth via online message board forums, and a new Teen & Youth meeting on Sunday nights at 8 PM Eastern Time (meeting debuts on March 31st, 2013).

"The SMART Recovery program concepts tend to resonate with teens and youth -- they latch on to the idea of not being powerless and they love having a choice in recovery programs," says Teen & Youth Team Chair, Marnie.

Effective March 15th, a new message board forum will be available for teens & youth and will target teens through 23. "The teens and young people will have a place to call their own and to discuss issues that are impacting their lives. The forum and meetings will be administered by adults with talent and experience with helping teens and youth, but as is the case with SMART Recovery, the forum and meeting participants will focus on "self-management" and providing peer support to one another," continued Marnie. Teen & Youth meeting participants will be provided a meeting verification if helpful for court-ordered meeting attendance.

Also newly available is the Teen & Youth Handbook, expanded to include graphics and additional tools and resources relevant to young people.
