Recovery
Self-Management And Recovery Training (SMART) is a global community of mutual-support groups. At meetings, participants help one another resolve problems with any addiction (to drugs or alcohol or to activities such as gambling or over-eating). Participants find and develop the power within themselves to change and lead fulfilling and balanced lives guided by our science-based and sensible 4-Point Program®. There is no charge to participate.  https://www.smartrecovery.org/

In The Rooms is a free online recovery tool that offers 130 weekly online meetings for those recovering from addiction and related issues. We embrace multiple pathways to recovery, including all 12 Step, Non-12 Step, Wellness and Mental Health modalities.  https://www.intherooms.com/home/

Many of you are familiar with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and have likely been using ACT principles to address the emotional response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Russ Harris, ACT practitioner and author of The Happiness Trap, has developed a free eBook on using ACT to approach the COVID-19 outbreak using the acronym FACE COVID. You can find it on his website, or by clicking this link:  https://drive.google.com/file/d/117HY4z4mY5izJpR44ejuZ8rhTyoWEGEG/view
