Learn to Lead Meetings
Interested in hosting a meeting?
Almost all SMART Recovery meetings are led by trained volunteers. We welcome all kinds of volunteers, even individuals who have not had problematic addictive behavior. We can almost guarantee that leading a SMART Recovery meeting will be one of the most satisfying activities you have ever experienced!
There are two ways to lead a meeting: Facilitating and hosting. Becoming a facilitator is more time-consuming than becoming a host, and there is a fee for training. Host training is free and available anytime on the international website. Please read about both types of training here: http://www.smartrecovery.org/
If you are not sure how much you will like being a meeting leader we can help you start small and progress at whatever speed you like.
