SMART Recovery®

An Addictions Recovery Program Designed with Science & Results in Mind.

What defines Emergo is our commitment to using proven, evidence-based techniques to help people overcome addictions in ways other programs just can’t. That’s why we’re proud to be the ONLY residential program in Ontario with staff certified to teach the SMART Recovery® program.

SMART Recovery

Here’s What It’s Not

It is not a faith-based program, and it’s not a 12-step program. Instead of stirring up guilt, reliving traumatic events and relaying blame, SMART Recovery® uses a scientific approach designed to restore healthy mental and physical balance to guide you toward self-empowerment and self-reliance.

Here’s What It Is

It’s a proven, evidence-based technique program that harnesses tools such as motivational interviewing and cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) to effectively address addictive behaviour.
