Episode 249: SMART Talk with Arthur Shenker

Arthur Shenker is a certified meeting facilitator for SMART Recovery and works as SMART’s National Outreach Liason to introduce SMART Recovery to treatment facilities. Arthur previously appeared as a guest on Episode 220 where he shared a little of his own personal story and talked about the SMART tools and how to use them. Recently, Arthur contacted me to ask if perhaps I would like to do a regular series focusing on SMART Recovery, and of course, I was excited about the idea.

In this episode, Arthur and I talk about the series and how we might expect it to unfold. This was a casual conversation that introduces SMART to anyone who may not already be familiar with the organization and how it works. In upcoming episodes, we delve deeper into the SMART tools and have guests from the SMART Recovery community.
