    I use these books for my Client’s and my own recovery. They are hands down better than the 2nd addition.

    Plain language, interactive SMART worksheets, all the points and tools described so well- your recovery will be improved if you use this book as a tool. Before, between and after meetings- this will help you keep the recovery conversation going in your mind.

    Almost everything in the book can be printed off the smart recovery website for free. I’m slightly disappointed.

      Thanks, Kena, for your comment! We do have an abundance of helpful material on our website, which is by design. At the same time, the SMART Recovery Handbook (print and Kindle version) is a handy compilation of the 4-Point Program and the tools that is within easy reach along one’s recovery journey. Some meetings use the Handbook and reference specific pages. It’s also helpful for those who don’t use or have access to the internet. The Handbook continues to receive stellar rating on Amazon and from our readership. The chapters correspond to the 4-Points, so if someone is experiencing a lack of motivation you can turn to Chapter 3, or having a bad urge, Chapter 4. And our other publications for professionals, Family & Friends participants, correctional facilities, etc. continue to be embraced by those who purchase those products. All that said, please feel free to contact the Central Office at 866/951-5357 if you would like to discuss this further.

    I’ve been a facilitator for years, and participants who have and use the book tell me how important it has been to have around. As another reviewer said, much of the material is available on the website- and the book is a very useful, organized guide for the tools, including interactive parts to practice the tools and support their recovery. The style is so matter of fact, plain language- easy to read the whole thing at once, or just a couple pages at a time. It’s descriptive, not “lecturey”.

    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.

    Great feedback on the book from my face to face meeting participants. They have been most helpful!
    I love having it to reference for myself as well as the facilitator manual.

    I used the 2nd edition while in Smart Recovery and I received this (the 3rd) edition when I ordered for my group. There is a big difference between the 2.
    For a handbook on Recovery of any type this organization and these materials are hands down the Best I have been around and had the Privilege to use.

    Easy to use, easy to grasp information in a step by step guide. While many handouts are printable from the website, I think it is more useful day to day to have the written book in your hand. I give an overview of smart recovery to patients/clients in early recovery and get an overwhelmingly positive response from those that find AA 12 step not useful. The more tools you have, the better the final results. I will continue to use this resource daily. An excellent resource for the addiction world!!! Cannot wait for the 4th edition.

    Gave my book away to someone who needed it more than me at the moment. So excited to get back into ME! Love it!
