SMART Recovery 4-Point Programme

Our Approach

SMART Recovery Hong Kong is an organisation that:

  • Teaches self-empowerment and self-reliance
  • Provides meetings that are educational, supportive and include open discussions
  • Teaches techniques for self-directed change
  • Supports the scientifically informed use of psychological treatments and legally prescribed psychiatric and addiction medication
  • Works on substance abuse, alcohol abuse, addiction and drug abuse as complex maladaptive behaviours with possible physiological factors
  • Evolves as scientific knowledge in addiction recovery evolves
  • Differs from Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and other 12-step programmes

Other meetings

We hold another weekly meeting on Hong Kong Island on Connaught Road West.

When: Every Monday 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Where: Suite 3001, 30/F, 118 Connaught Road West, MRT station Exit A2. We are in the building across the road.
