Meridian delivers ONLINE Self-Management And Recovery Training (SMART) group meetings supporting LGBTIQA+ people who would like to start a conversation around their use of alcohol & other drugs and other addictions.
SMART Recovery focuses on harm minimisation and reduction rather than abstinence from alcohol & other drugs and other addictions. The SMART Recovery model is designed to address why we may struggle and how to foster a healthy relationship with alcohol & other drugs (and any addictive behaviors) that aligns with your personal life goals and sense of wellbeing, be that moderation, taking a break or ending the relationship all together. Meridian SMART Recovery is a peer-led program encouraging skill-sharing, goal setting and productive discussion in a safe and inclusive environment.
We have a fabulous team of trained SMART Recovery facilitators from a diverse range of backgrounds and lived experiences. Meridian hosts one of the only ONLINE LGBTIQA+ SMART Recovery meetings, ensuring a truly welcoming and inclusive space. Discretion is assured and your privacy is of the utmost importance to us.
- Meridian SMART Recovery is held every Wednesday, 6:00pm – 7:30pm
- Meetings are held online via ZOOM and run for 90 minutes.
- Minimum age: 16yrs
- Cost: FREE
If you are an AOD service provider and have LGBTIQA+ clients or service users who may benefit from our program, we would love to hear from them.
