SMART Recovery Be Smart Family and Supporters Training - Perth

Wednesday 27 February 2019
Venue to be confirmed, Perth

After finishing the SMART Recovery Facilitator Training, you can register for our Be SMART Family and Supporters Training.

Be SMART is intended to assist anyone who is affected by the addictive behaviour of someone close to them. Be SMART's sole aim is to improve the quality of life, coping skills, and support system of the family member, friend or supporter of the person with a problem behaviour. The aim of this program is not to mobilise participants to get the person they support into treatment, or to force the person with the problem behaviour to do anything at all. Instead, this program is about getting the supporter to Be SMART and regain control of their own lives.


To register, please visit:
