SMART Recovery program

SMART Recover September Flyer 2016

headspace Woodville’s exciting new FREE group program, SMART Recovery, for young people aged 16-25 with problematic behaviours, including addiction to alcohol and other drugs, cigarettes, gambling, Internet use and gaming, food, shopping, or anything else. The SMART Recovery  group sessions will be held on Monday afternoons from 4-5.30pm starting Monday September 26th.

The SMART Recovery program is guided by trained facilitators from headspace Woodville and Centacare’s Integrated Youth Substance Misuse Specialist Service (IYSMSS), using evidence-based CBT techniques in a youth-friendly setting. Our SMART Recovery group program has an open and ongoing format, so you are welcome to either refer a young person or encourage them to attend at any point.  

The facilitators and participants focus on the addictive behaviour rather than the substance itself, and each session helps young people to build and maintain motivation, cope with urges, learn problem-solving techniques, and achieve lifestyle balance. If you would like to refer a young person to the SMART Recovery or would like additional information about our SMART Recovery group program, please contact us on (08) 8243 7900 or headspacewoodville@centacare.org.au. Additionally, you can encourage young people to just attend a session to try it out.
