    SMART Moves From Abstinence-Based to Abstinence-Oriented Addiction Recovery

    SMART Moves From Abstinence-Based to Abstinence-Oriented Addiction Recovery

    While this terminology change may seem minimal to some, it is certainly not to Board President Bill Greer. To provide some added context to an important announcement the organization has recently made, we sat down with Bill to discuss why SMART's new stance in moving toward abstinence-oriented is so important and the impact we hope it will have in helping those who utilize or wish to utilize medication-assisted-treatment (MAT) in their recovery.

    WEBINAR: Addiction Recovery - Self Esteem Can Be Toxic. How to Escape the Trap with Dr. Michael Edelstein

    WEBINAR: Addiction Recovery - Self Esteem Can Be Toxic. How to Escape the Trap with Dr. Michael Edelstein

    SMART Recovery was pleased to welcome back Michael Edelstein, Ph.D., author of Three Minute Therapy, who presented to us the surprising truth about self-esteem.
    Dr. Edelstein is beyond compare for his ability to explain the concepts of CBT and Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT). These, at their core, hold that faulty thinking and beliefs, such as using self-esteem as a measure of “self,” can adversely affect our mood, well-being and ability to enjoy life. Examining our thinking and actively questioning our assumptions allows us to stay aligned with our personal values and goals and live lives that are full and satisfying.
    These are the same topics that are the very foundation of SMART and Dr. Edelstein did not disappoint in a webinar that will be highly interesting to SMART participants, facilitators and friends.
    Dr. Edelstein is a licensed clinical psychologist in San Francisco. He offers in-person as well as telephone and Skype sessions. He is famous as the author of Three Minute Therapy: Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life (1997), with David Ramsay Steele. Recently, Dr. Edelstein created a YouTube channel with Tommy Bateman, featuring podcasts on topics of interest in REBT He also has a long-running website at threeminutetherapy.com.

    WEBINAR: Engaging Community to Fight Addiction with Ivette Torres from SAMHSA

    Ivette Torres, Director of the Office of Consumer Affairs in SAMHSA’s Center for Substance Abuse Treatment for almost 20 years, joins SMART to discuss community engagement.
    In this lively and engaging talk, Ms. Torres discusses some of the topics of concern today in behavioral health related to addiction, and she shares how SAMHSA can help communities gain access to the resources they need. Within that, the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) promotes community-based substance abuse treatment and recovery services for individuals and families in every community.
    One of our favorite initiatives, National Recovery Month takes place in September, and this is a great time to start planning. Ms. Torres is an ardent and enthusiastic supporter and promoter of this initiative and discusses how to get involved. We hope to see more SMART local National Recovery Month events than ever before in 2017. 
    Ms. Torres has been with SAMHSA’s (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Agency) Center for Substance Abuse Treatment for almost 20 years. She oversees the CSAT team responsible for generating and disseminating substance abuse treatment information to SAMHSA’s mission-related constituents. She also develops national communication strategies and campaigns including the observance of the National Recovery Month, celebrated each September.
