SMART Recovery Plan The SMART Recovery Plan is NOT mandated by ADAA. The Recovery Plan is for you and your client’s focus on recovery. From the first point of contact, promoting and utilizing positive goals and objectives should be an upfront aspect of recovery. Recovery plans should address motivation for change.
SMART Recovery Plan The recovery plan is where information gathered is used to put recovery into practice. The recovery plan is a map designed to meet your client’s specific needs during their journey during abstinence from substance use. The plan’s focus is on where the client needs to be, and how they can best use available resources (personal, program- based, or criminal justice) to get there. At a minimum, the recovery plan serves as a basis of shared understanding between the client and care coordinator.
