SMART believes that the principles of our program and our tools can be applied to any maladaptive behavior. There are characteristics of some issues, though, that distinguish them from the alcohol and drug issues that we most frequently discuss. Here, we will focus on eating disorders (ED) and gambling as specific examples of “other” addictions. Both Dr. Tuell and Ms. Hull have devoted their careers to the study and practice of addictive behaviors, and we are pleased to have their expertise to provide support for those struggling with ED or gambling issues. We are also grateful for the education for our community and the public. We are eager to expand our knowledge, support and compassion for those who come to SMART: www.smartrecovery.org.
