The Be SMART Program has been designed to assist people who are affected by the addictive behaviour of someone close to them. The program aims to help participants develop more effective coping strategies and find a greater sense of fulfilment through looking at:

 

 

Motivation to change

Self care & self rewards

Assertive communication

Safety & support

Problem solving

Coping with lapses

 

 

Being in a close relationship can be like riding an emotional rollercoaster. Grief, anger, resentment, frustration, hope, disgust and disappointment can all be experienced. The program recognises that being in a close relationship with someone struggling with an addiction can be a frustrating, painful and sometimes lonely journey, in which it is easy to lose one’s bearings.

Rather than focusing on the other person, the program invites participants to spend some time concentrating on themselves and their goals.

 

 

The eight-week group program explores ways that participants can look after themselves better and promote healthier relationships with the other person. 

 

 

The Facilitators: The highly qualified and experienced staff at Watershed, are accredited Smart Recovery facilitators and look forward in educating and supporting those needing assistance.
