Introduction to Smart Recovery

Introduction to Smart Recovery

This Web site has been constructed to provide an abundance of information
about addictive behavior: theories of habit endurance and habit change as
well as tips for effectively managing problematic habitual behavior. Many people grappling with addictive behavior are not aware that there are many potentially effective routes to change. In as much as AA and associated 12-step approaches have been useful to many, one size does not fit all.
Furthermore, many who align themselves with the 12-step model can augment their recovery with other information and tools.

I liked this site very much. I read what Dr. Westermeyer had to say about
codependency. It was so good I down loaded it so I can reread it. Caring for
and about someone is not being codependent! I spent an afternoon lookin into
some of the information. Educationally significant site for teachers and
parents.

Technical Remarks:

Roaming around this site was not difficult. You find many topics to read over.
There's something for everyone.

I spent approximately 35 minutes to browse this site. I find this site is
useful. These are some questions about alcohol check-ups to help determine the
drinking situations and also gives you suggestions for intervention.
It is very useful for people who can not change their drinking behavior.

Technical Remarks:

I think this website is little bit complicated for the first time users,
although I think if you this website a lot, it will be very useful and easy to
gather information.

I spent appoximately 2-3 hours surfing different areas of this site. Specificly
I enjoyed the cognitive-therapy around anger management. There was alot of
information I felt was pertinent for both myself, and the youth I work with.
Another area I thought was intersesting was the Coping with urges page. I would
have liked to see some additional links relating to the information on this
site. Over-all I enjoyed my time spent viewing this site.

Technical Remarks:

This was very easy to navigate. The first time on, I didn't have any trouble
getting around. I do believe this site can be a useful tool for both a
student/teacher. Again, I would have liked to see more related links to the
areas targeted on this site.

I enjoyed this iste. It has a great alcohol depedancy test, and great links to
other sites such as for cognitive therapy and smoking addictions. I spent a good
amount of time and will likely spend more. I didn't give five stars because the
sub-category despriptions, I felt needed more info.

Technical Remarks:

Very easy to navigate, the links clicks to other sites are instant, and the site
itself is easy on the eyes.

I spent about 45 minutes reading through this material and taking the tests. I
took the alcohol self- check up for someone I know and my assumptions were
correct. The information was very straight forward and clear. It gave
information for everyone, alcoholic, parents, and children. I think it could
easily be used as a teaching tool. It names many reasons for not drinking that
many teens should be aware of. I think it would be helpfull not only in a
classroom but maybe at an AA meeting.

Technical Remarks:

I think this site was easy to use and very informative!
