Wishing a very happy New Year to all! How did you enjoy your holiday? Did you have a successful year in 2022? Have you achieved the objectives set out at the start of the year? Was last year full of meaningful experiences and memories for you?

Oh, if you’re asking me, Mosaic Home Services had an incredibly meaningful 2022! We have hosted twelve charity events throughout the year, making a contribution to society by raising $36,192.70 in total! This number is 28.4% greater than our effort in 2021, which was $28,180.40! We are so happy to see the dedication of people and we appreciate all the support from our customers! Thank you all, we would not have been able to achieve this success without your support!

This year, Mosaic Home Services is determined to do an even better job than last year! We are excited to announce our first charity of the year—SMART Recovery! We genuinely hope this will be a wonderful start for the months to come this year.

About SMART Recovery

SMART Recovery is the world’s largest community of self-empowering, mutual support meetings, serving one million people annually in over twenty countries. SMART stands for Self-Management and Recovery Training and is a novel approach to addiction recovery. The organization is more than an acronym; it is a fresh method of transitioning from addictive substances and negative behaviors to a life of positive self-regard and willingness to change.

The core mission of SMART is to empower people struggling with addiction to live better lives. The organization seeks to support individuals in the recovery process by equipping them with the necessary tools and guidance through recovery support systems.SMART meetings provide an opportunity to create a healthier and more purposeful life. Participants are able to design and implement their own recovery plans with both physical and online support from the group.

As you can see, SMART emphasizes individuals’ role in the recovery process, supporting those who are seeking a self-empowering way to overcome addictive problems with the latest, updated, and adjusted scientific methods including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), and Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET).

SMART not only focuses on scientific methods but also holds strong humanistic values. This is evident from the direct quote taken from their website: “SMART views addiction as a behavior that can be corrected, not a condition that defines a person’s identity. We discourage the use of labels such as ‘addict’ or ‘alcoholic’. Research has shown that labels undermine motivation for many people. Similarly, we don’t label those who have relapsed as “failures.” SMART focuses on what people can do today to create a better future. We don’t dwell on the past, which cannot be changed. Our goal is to help participants build lives with new behaviors that transcend addiction. Life Beyond Addiction is our highest goal.” 

With SMART tools and resources, people can identify the flaws in their addictive choices and behaviors. Moreover, they can develop their authenticity, learn to lead a life that reinforces purpose, integrity, and balance to support long-term recovery.
