Studies have shown CRAFT to be significantly more effective than either Al-Anon or Johnson interventions for getting addicted individuals into treatment. Written in simple, straightforward language, this Handbook includes tools, exercises, and practical strategies. Topics include: Change and Motivation, Positive Communication, Healthy Boundaries, Safety and Support, Coping with Lapses, Disabling the Enabling, Trust and Forgiveness – and much more. It can be used on its own or in conjunction with attendance at SMART Family & Friends online or community meetings. A Family & Friends meeting participant states: “I came to SMART to get help dealing with my partner's addiction. What I got are tools that help me deal more effectively with almost every aspect of MY life.”

    This book was well worth the $10 I spent for a copy of my own that I could write in. I've read a lot of this stuff already in other books, I find I need to keep reenforcing these ideas through rereading and writing, so having this handbook helped with that. Some of the most helpful exercises were the ABC exercises using Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, and those are exercises that could help a broader audience than just the one targeted in this book.

I've read a lot of this stuff already in other books, I find I need to keep reenforcing these ideas through rereading and writing, so having this handbook helped with that. Some of the most helpful exercises were the ABC exercises using Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, and those are exercises that could help a broader audience than just the one targeted in this book. Now that I've gone through it once and have some written thoughts and goals, it will be even more helpful to go back and reread later. It also has a nice list of references in the back for further reading. The Smart Recovery approach makes a lot of sense to me. Although sometimes on the page it's simpler than in real life, for the most part, I've found it a great help in my efforts to get my head on straight and work on my own goals for change. Highly recommended, especially for people whose loved ones struggle with addiction, but also for people who are trying to get a grip on how much their emotions govern their actions.

    Meh. SMART is a great alternative to AA and Al-anon. It offers actionable, religion-free advice. This book seemed like common sense to me, and at times it came off condescending. If your “LO” is an abusive addict, don’t bother with this book. If your children aren’t safe in the care of the addict and your childcare options are limited, also skip this book. No ones going to take guitar lessons as self care while worrying if their “LO” is driving around drunk or high with their kids. The book has l Meh. SMART is a great alternative to AA and Al-anon.

The book has lots of great advice, it just definitely won’t apply to everyone at every stage of life.

    A very basic REBT manual with perhaps a little more jargon than helpful. I wish they could manage this without feeling a need to slam other paths to recovery. Also, saying “loved one” assumes a LOT because often the people reading this stuff aren’t all that emotionally engaged any more.
