Many Cincinnati-area face-to-face meetings have been (temporarily) suspended until further notice due to Coronavirus. Some of the Cincinnati facilitators have instead set up Zoom meetings in place of the face-to-face meetings (see below). When it is safe to do so we will resume regular in-person meetings. Please keep tabs on this page for more information, including new Zoom meetings that may be created. For more Zoom meetings you can get a free account on the national website and join the nationally-organized Zoom meetings:

SMART Recovery Meetings are open to the public (with the exception of those that state CLOSED). There is never a cost to attend, however a hat is passed at the end of meetings for donations. You do not need to contact the facilitator or register prior to attending; you are welcome to just show up. Visitors are welcome but the focus is on individuals with a problem and their spouses, friends and relatives. It is assumed that everyone in attendance has a desire to learn about SMART.

If you have questions about the meeting or need further information, you may contact the facilitator via the contact information provided in the meeting descriptions above. If you prefer, you may also contact us here.
