Fletcher Group partners with SMART Recovery to improve addiction treatment

The London, Ky.-based Fletcher Group expanded its partnership with Mentor, Ohio-based SMART Recovery due to a $300,000 grant from the Indianapolis-based Elevance Health Foundation.

Through the partnership with SMART Recovery, the Fletcher Group helps connect recovery houses with the Successful Life Skills program. The program features a structured curriculum that uses evidence-based methods to overcome addiction, according to an Oct. 7 news release.

The grant funds allow the Fletcher Group to offer SMART Recovery's program to recovery homes at no cost. The organization's shared goal is to have the program implemented within three years at 150 recovery houses in the following six states: California, Georgia, Indiana, New York, Ohio, and Virginia.

"Housing plays a critical role in recovering from opioid and other substance use disorders. But many recovery houses struggle to provide their residents with professional services. Thanks to the generous support of the Elevance Health Foundation, we can now make SMART Recovery's training program available to far more houses than we could otherwise," said Fletcher Group founder and CMO, Ernie Fletcher, MD.
