Addiction recovery, a self-help discussion group, is provided every Tuesday from 3-4 pm at the PG Plaza Day Center (6800 Adelphi Road, Hyattsville). The program – Self Management and Recovery Training (SMART) – is open to all with no preregistration required. The program offers a mutual self-help approach for group discussion of addiction and recovery. The format is free-flowing, starting with introductions of participants and what each would like to say about how their week went. The intent is to lead to discussion, show mutual respect, and share addiction struggles and strategies for recovery. The group is facilitated each week by Donny Phillips.
