Join RRHC Behavioral Health Case Manager, Jocelyn Blackwell, at Doddridge Co. Public Library every Tuesday for SMART Recovery and Friends and Family. Everyone is welcome!
SMART Recovery is unique in that it encompasses all types of addictive behavior as well as mental health struggles. It is not focused on alcohol or substance addiction and can include shopping addiction, eating addiction, gaming addiction, gambling addiction, or issues with mental health such as self-harm which can lead to addiction. Addiction is something that a person engages in that results in problems in their everyday life activities and relationships that they continue to engage in regardless of the negative impact it has.
In SMART Recovery, we focus on the fact that everyone is individual and their recovery is also individual. We work through stages of change and meet them where they are at without negative feedback. We are supportive of everyone’s choice to handle their recovery the way they see fit. Individuals are not powerless and we take a self-empowerment approach to recovery.
In the Friends and Family group, we focus on how individuals with loved ones struggling with addictive behaviors can cope and take back some control of how they respond to their loved ones.
