SMART Recovery Meetings for Family and Friends affected by the addictive behaviour of a loved one
Being in a close relationship with someone struggling with an addiction can be a frustrating, painful and sometimes lonely journey, in which it is easy to lose one’s bearings.
The SMART Family & Friends programme invites participants to spend time concentrating on themselves and their goals, an area they may have been neglecting for some time. This includes looking at some of their habitual responses to their loved one and exploring whether these are helpful or not.
Meetings take place on Tuesdays, alternating between evenings one week, from 6pm to 7.30pm and afternoons the next from 2pm to 4pm.
If you would like more information about SMART Recovery and how it might help you, please contact Family Support – Addictions on 0131 622 6262 speak to a member of staff or Email: email@example.com

The SMART Recovery Family & Friends (F&F) Programme offers an evidence-based approach to support individuals with a loved one struggling with addiction.
SMART F&F includes tools from Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy in combination with the highly acclaimed CRAFT (Community Reinforcement and Family Training) programme. The programme is designed to help those affected by a loved one’s addictive behaviour to learn new ways of dealing with the challenges, thoughts and emotions that they experience.
The programme looks at areas including Positive Communication, Disabling the Enabling, Trust and Self Care. SMART F&F will help participants to view their own behaviours, challenge their thinking and find more effective ways to interact with their loved one, as well as learning ways to empower themselves.
