Alternative Meetings

Addiction Recovery Institute Of America understands that attending alternative meetings and/or religious services may offer clients additional help and support.

We will take clients to alternative meetings and programs upon request.

Alternatives include SMART recovery which has a cognitive-behavioral approach to dealing with addiction.  They believe in a scientific approach and do not necessarily define addiction as a disease.  SMART recovery works well for those who take responsibility for themselves and their actions.

Addiction Recovery Institute Of America also offers our clients the opportunity to attend synagogue or church regularly. We understand that having faith and being involved in religion works well to help clients stay clean and sober.  Addiction Recovery Institute Of America supports all clients choosing this path and we will make necessary arrangements for whatever services that will best support our clients.

Another alternative is the holistic approach to recovery.  We introduce our clients to different activities including yoga and diet changes that will help to recover the entire body – physically, mentally and spiritually.

By incorporating different approaches in treating addiction we offer more opportunity for successful recovery. We encourage our clients to try different approaches.

Our therapists are trained to help a client decide which approach will work best for their recovery, if they desire.
