UPDATE: Due to COVID lockdown our face to face SMART groups are temporarily suspended. Clients can access any of the online groups such as our Friday online group. We will continue to keep you updated.
Self-management and recovery training (SMART) is a self-help group that can assist you to make the changes you want. SMART groups are facilitated by peers who have experience of both mental health and alcohol or other drug concerns.
SMART Recovery is based on four basic principles:
- building and maintaining motivation
- coping with urges and cravings
- self managing of thoughts, feelings and behaviours
- living a balanced lifestyle
SMART Recovery meetings:
- focus on the present and future
- focus on planning and setting goals for the next seven days
- are about learning to plan your recovery by making the changes you want
No bookings are necessary, just come along. For the online group, click on the link and you will be redirected to the Smart Recovery website. Just scroll down to find the Palmerston listing for that time.

SMART Recovery Groups information sheet – Oct 2020
(from 3 Aug)
Family support groups offer the opportunity to talk about what is happening for you with other people in a similar situation. Groups are run by peers (people who have experienced the alcohol and other drug use of someone close to them).
Please contact us the branch most convenient to you to see what family groups are available.
Our TCs are still operating as Palmerston continues to offer services to the community. Assessment for the therapeutic residential program is now being offered through PHONE ASSESSMENT
. The assessment is tailored to meet individual needs and to ensure maximum benefit from participating in the therapeutic community program. For this reason, the assessment process is slightly different for each individual and may vary in time to complete.
For all matters regarding residential rehabilitation, please contact our Perth or Bunbury offices.
