Patients who go through a SMART recovery program learn about self-empowerment and self-reliance. They learn to take responsibility for their own actions as well as productive ways to change unhealthy thought patterns that in the past has led to substance abuse. Our drug and alcohol treatment center in Pompano Beach provides a SMART Recovery program for addiction treatment and we pride ourselves in guiding our patients through the recovery journey every step of the way.
The SMART approach uses techniques from cognitive behavioral and motivational enhancement therapies to teach the necessary skills needed to successfully reach sobriety. This addiction treatment program emphasizes:
This approach focuses on self-directed change with an emphasis on teaching individuals how to work through the struggles they face when they get the urge to use again. A patient will be able to learn productive ways to enable behavior changes with the help of specialized therapists. Once a patient has experienced a long period of change they are able to handle real world situations that could test their sobriety. The goal of a SMART recovery program is to maintain long term recovery and relapse prevention techniques are a main component to this program. Our Pompano Beach addiction treatment center has seen great success with this treatment approach and many of our patients smoothly transition back into everyday life with the tools needed for success.
