Are you looking to help a loved one with an addiction?

Is someone else’s addiction negatively affecting you?

Designed for people affected by the addictive behavior of a loved one, this 138 page Handbook contains 14 sections with a wide range of topics including: Change and Motivation, Positive Communication, Healthy Boundaries, Safety and Support, Coping with Lapses, Disable the Enabling, Trust and Forgiveness – and much more.  It can be used in conjunction with attendance at SMART Family & Friends (F&F) online or community meetings, or on its own.

The Handbook includes SMART Recovery’s tools for coping in a healthy way with the many emotionally challenging situations frequently encountered in relationships where addiction is a factor.  A Family & Friends meeting participant states: “I came to SMART to get help dealing with my partner’s addiction. What I got are tools that help me deal more effectively with almost every aspect of MY life.”

Additionally, the Handbook incorporates the principles of the evidence-based CRAFT (Community Reinforcement and Family Training) approach. Studies have shown CRAFT to be significantly more effective than either Al-Anon or Johnson interventions for getting addicted individuals into treatment.

    This book is great. A very well organized program of tools that helped me in my recovery. I use all the tools regularly and the more I do them, the stronger I get when urges and triggers come along.
