Starting SMART Recovery meetings in Clark

As part of Open Mindeness, group participants now have an opportunity to join SMART Recovery meetings at The Counseling Center at Clark.

In October of 2016, the "Next Steps" group at The Counseling Center dedicated a discussion to the 12 Steps, a program based on "principals that have helped millions of people find recovery since 1935".

Facilitator Matt Baker led the discussion, including selective readings from both The Basic Text and The Big Book that promote recovery in its entirety. The discussion found a center around how group meetings were a safe place, and group meeting participants expressed their feelings that they "don't feel alone when sharing in group" and they like having "a safe place to share and learn about recovery".

One of the findings of that helpful group discussion has led to our starting to host SMART Recovery meetings at The Counseling Center. Participants in the group vocalized how they implement the principles of honesty, open mindedness and willingness, while working their own recoveries with help from group meetings at The Counseling Center.  We spent time talking about being open minded to new and different ideas, such as attending different fellowship meetings beyond traditional AA and NA meetings, such as SMART recovery meetings, bible study, meditation, yoga, and various specific mental health groups.

SMART Recovery meetings start August 15th, and are planned to be weekly, on Tuesday evenings. Please visit this page for current information about the meetings.
