April is Volunteer Month at SMART Recovery!


Every April, SMART Recovery celebrates Volunteer Month to acknowledge the efforts of our many dedicated volunteers,
and to also encourage others to join us in those efforts.

With that goal in mind, we’re offering
a number of free and reduced-cost Training Scholarships this month.
These scholarships provide training for those who want to volunteer, but might need financial assistance to cover the cost of the SMART Recovery Facilitator and Support Team Distance Training (FAST).

Volunteer Training Scholarships are available for local and online facilitators, message board volunteers, chat volunteers, and other volunteers who may benefit from the SMART Recovery FAST training.


So why wait?  Become a trained SMART Recovery volunteer today!!

New Event:


Sunday Sunset Hike!

April 15th

This month’s Super Sober Sunday Sunset Hike will be in & around the San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve/Cardiff Beach!

Meet at 5:30 PM at the San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy, 2710 Manchester Avenue, Cardiff, CA  90027 
This is an “easy” level hike with many options for stopping/resting points from which one can still have a beautiful view of the sunset, even if they do not want to walk all of the way down to the beach itself.


Our Sunset Hikes will be held on the third Sunday of each month, weather permitting.
Like the monthly walks, our Sunday Sunset Hikes are informal events where we just get together for some good outdoors fun.
Bring a friend or two if you’d like!


Monthly Walk!

This month’s walk was a “team-up effort” with the Heroes In Recovery 6K walk/run fundraiser event.

Details for May’s walk coming soon !

On the first Saturday of each month we have an informal get together to walk some of the great locations here in San Diego County. The monthly walk is a social event, not a meeting, and is simply a chance to get together and meet and visit with other SMARTies. Bring a friend or two if you’d like; kids and dogs are welcome too!

If you have any questions about our monthly walks, please contact Bill Brock: 619.665.2125
