SMART offers a vast array of professional support and structured programmes, but sometimes you might need something a little less formal as you move on through your journey. That’s where a mentor can really help.
Many of our mentors have had a recovery journey of their own, some have experience of a family member or friends struggle with addiction, and all of them are well trained, caring and bring extensive life experience.
How can a mentor help you?
A mentor can also be there to help keep you on track throughout your journey. They can help you to make sense of confusing systems, support you to appointments, or just catch up for coffee.
When you have achieved your goals, a mentor can help to bridge the gap into life beyond treatment, making the transition easier.
Mentoring is a different kind of relationship to a worker, and isn’t restricted to office hours or appointments. Every mentoring relationship is unique, to match your needs, but all are built on trust, with someone who can share their experience and knowledge to help you learn.
“My mentor is a role model. He helps hold me to my promises.”
