Looking to beat an addiction? SMART Recovery is a stigma-free and self-empowering secular program serving those with an addictive behavior — whether a particular substance or an activity/process addiction. Participants design and implement their own recovery plan to create a more balanced, purposeful, fulfilling, and meaningful life.

Anyone seeking a secular recovery program is invited to attend our twice-monthly support group sessions, but especially those who identify as humanist, atheist, and/or agnostic. We will be meeting in person regularly the first and third Saturdays of the month from 1:00 – 2:30pm starting in September.

Sessions are led by Belit Flores, a trained volunteer facilitator, who draws on evidence-based motivational and cognitive behavioral theories. Within a mutually supportive group environment, SMART participants are empowered to develop their ability to:

  • Build and maintain motivation
  • Cope with urges and cravings
  • Manage thoughts, feelings, and behaviors
  • Live a balanced life

Whether you are seeking a course of recovery for yourself or have been mandated to attend a recovery program, SMART Recovery provides a path to life beyond addiction.

These sessions are sponsored by HumanistsMN. If you are not yet a dues paying member, please consider joining to help us cover our costs and build the humanist movement. Not yet ready to join? Donations are gratefully accepted! Donate or join us at
