Recovery group meets online

| May 5, 2020 1:58 PM

I have started a new recovery group in Whitefish. The program is called Smart Recovery. It is a science-based program to help people manage their recovery from any type of addictive behavior. We focus on self-empowerment through learning skills like how to build and maintain motivation, cope with urges, managing thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and living a balanced life. Before the pandemic in person meetings were just about to begin. Post-pandemic we are online with Zoom every Thursday at 7 p.m. I hope to get the word out that there is a new option for help despite social distancing. Our community and myself personally have lost to many loved ones to addiction. I hope that by having more options available and an atmosphere of empowerment and inclusion we can make a difference.
