is a disease. It's that simple. However, facing up to the condition and treating it is far from easy. Over 23 million Americans struggle with alcohol or drug-related issues
. Here at INNOVA Recovery Services
, we understand the difficulties of having to cope with an addiction. That's why we're here to help.
Our treatment program is based from the SMART Recovery® treatment protocols of teaching and increasing self-reliance. SMART Recovery uses a 4-point program.
- Building and Maintaining Motivation
- Coping with Urges
- Managing Thoughts, Feelings and Behaviors
- Living a Balanced Life
We chose SMART Recovery because it is not a traditional 12-step program like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA). Using the SMART Recovery curriculum as well as group, individual and family therapy we can teach clients how to change self-defeating thinking, emotions, and actions. We believe the SMART Recovery curriculum assists our clients with tools and techniques necessary for self-directed change.
SMART Recovery is different because it advocates choice. Each client is presented with a variety of options that they can choose from. The SMART Recovery goal is for you to achieve a healthy, positive and balanced lifestyle and to "graduate" when you feel your addictive behavior is behind you, not to remain a permanent participant in the program.
SMART Recovery® has been around for 20+ years, aiding individuals just like yourself in overcoming addicting behaviors. For more information on the principles of SMART Recovery®, you can visit their website at www.smartrecovery.org.
