YOUTH ONLY (16-25yr) | SMART Recovery meeting - (Marrickville Youth Resource Centre and Barnardos)
This YOUTH focussed SMART Recovery meeting is free and open to young people aged 16-25 only. This is a drop-in style ONLINE meeting (may return to face-to-face meeting in 2022).

SMART Recovery is a peer support group that helps people to cut down or stop problem behaviours. Our online SMART Recovery meetings use evidence-based tools to enable people to change and self-manage any kind of addictive behaviour, most commonly related to alcohol, drugs, gambling, cigarettes/vaping, food, gaming, etc.

The meetings are free and run weekly for up to 90 minutes. Our meetings are generally small with up to 8 people, allowing time to tailor a plan specific for you and your week ahead.

Each meeting is guided by a trained facilitator, and group members participate using a combination of video, voice, and text chat (using the chat box feature).

Attendance records are available for those needing this for court reasons.

What to expect:

- Goal setting: Reflect on your last 7 days and set your own achievable plan for the week ahead

- Focus is on the problem behaviours and not on the substance/activity itself

- Concentrate on the present and future, not on the past (no life stories!)

- Discussion of tools and techniques to support you with your individual goals

- Share your ideas with others in the group, your experience may help them

Please be ready to turn your camera on so that you can fully participate in the meeting.
