Capital SMART

Welcome to the DC metro area chapter of the SMART Recovery Self-Help Network, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping you live a more free and happy life. We promote freedom from dependence on alcohol and other drugs through self-help in a small group setting supported by a variety of online tools to help you succeed. You can learn to make sensible and reasoned choices to abstain by overcoming problem habits and thinking.

There is no charge for meetings, online or in person. Minimal voluntary donations are accepted.
