Hi Cloud

There's a lot of links to secular recovery programmes here, including SMART.

I think reading the websites themselves may help you work out where each programme is coming from
They may be radically different to what you're used to.

SR rules prevent us from discussing 12 step programs in the Secular Connections forum, so I'll just say this - if the alternatives promoted the same thing as the 12-step programs they wouldn't be very good alternatives.

Definitely give the link Dee provided a look. Also Google Rational Recovery/AVRT. A link to that isn't provided by SR, but there are quite a few people in Secular Connections using that technique.

Best of Luck.
