At Banyan Treatment Center, our specialized therapists have a wide variety of therapeutic skills, one of which is being trained in SMART Recovery. SMART Recovery (Self Management for Addiction Recovery Training) is an effective treatment method that teaches techniques to help people recover from all forms of addiction. At Banyan Pompano, we use a 4-Point Program that encourages self-directed change and many tools are learned to strengthen these points: 1) Building and Maintaining Motivation 2) Coping with Urges 3) Managing Thoughts, Feelings and Behaviors 4) Living a Balanced Life.
The SMART Recovery approach to addiction teaches self-empowerment as well as self-reliance. You are responsible for your own actions and it’s important to be held accountable in order to manage your own thoughts and behaviors when it comes to drugs and alcohol. Relapse can occur at any time and it’s important to learn the proper ways to prevent this from occurring in recovery. The SMART approach uses techniques from cognitive behavioral and motivational enhancement therapies to teach these necessary skills. Living a healthy life in recovery is possible with the help of this unique treatment recovery program at Banyan Pompano.
