Dr Tom Horvath, Ph.D., is a California licensed and board certified clinical psychologist (ABPP). He has been President of SMART Recovery® for over a decade and is the founder and president of Practical Recovery, a self-empowering addiction treatment system in San Diego. He is past president of the American Psychological Association’s Society on Addiction Psychology, the world’s largest organization of addiction psychologists.
There are several areas in which SMART’s focus and opinions and those of Dr. Peele differ. For instance, according to W.R.Miller “The best predictors of relapse for people treated for alcohol problems are lack of coping skills and belief in the disease theory of alcoholism.” Tom focuses on the former, Stanton on the latter. Listen to these two colleagues and friends discuss this difference in their focus.
