We appreciate that face-to-face meetings may be a source of concern due to the Coronavirus. We’re in the process of reaching out to our face-to-face facilitators to offer and support the transition of some meetings from in-person to online. At this point, the decision to do so is solely up to the meeting organizers. We advise you to verify this site’s meeting schedule before making preparations to attend a meeting, and to speak with your local facilitator about any questions or concerns you may have. Read more about our COVID-19 reaction.
The public is welcome to attend local SMART Recovery meetings (with the exception of those that state Private or Specialized). There is no charge to attend, however donations are collected in a hat. You do not need to make contact with the facilitator or register in advance; simply turn up (unless there is a note requesting attendees call first). If you have any concerns or require additional information, please contact the facilitator using the information provided.
This list is updated on a regular basis, and new meetings are added as they become available. If you don’t see a meeting in your area on the list, keep checking back because new meetings are added on a regular basis.
If you arrive at a meeting place and no one is there, please call the facilitator to see if the meeting is still on. Things come up from time to time that prohibit volunteer facilitators from attending. Please complete the Problematic Behavior Reporting form located here: http://www.smartrecovery.org/reporting problems.html if you are unable to contact the facilitator or if two or more attempts to attend the meeting are unsuccessful/no meeting is taking place.
If there isn’t a meeting listed for your location, there isn’t one currently scheduled.
* Consider hosting a local SMART Recovery meeting or joining one of our online meetings.
NOTE TO TREATMENT CENTERS: We appreciate your growing interest in sending patients to SMART meetings in their communities. If you’re sending four or more participants, we recommend notifying the facilitators ahead of time so they can manage logistics if necessary.
