State expert to discuss addiction recovery in free webinar Feb. 17

Posted: February 10, 2021

Lakeland Community College will host a virtual presentation, "The Scientific Method: Evidence Based Approach to Addiction Recovery," Wednesday, Feb. 17, from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. The program is part of the college's Knowledge Exchange programming and is free and open to the public. Participants may access the program by logging in to the presentation via Webex at, password: Knowledge.

The presentation will highlight the growing popularity of the evidence-based program, SMART Recovery. The SMART approach gives the power of choice back to the individuals who are in desperate need of options within their treatment plan for their addictions. Focusing on self-management and empowerment over their addictive and destructive behaviors, participants find SMART Recovery to be a welcome addition to their existing treatment programs or a source of primary motivation, to maintain an abstinent-oriented lifestyle balance.

The program will be presented by Michael Hooper, state outreach director for the Ohio SMART Recovery USA. The presentation will be followed by a Q & A.
