Yarn SMART (SMART Recovery) - Shaun

YarnSMART - Recovery from addiction

Shaun, a Mununjali and Goorenpul man living with his family on Yuggara country, found recovery from addiction through SMART Recovery during a recovery retreat several years ago. It was the first recovery program that had spoken to him, showing the way through the problems of substance abuse that he felt he had been looking for. Realising that although personal substance abuse was the immediate issue, underneath was the emotional pain of multiple losses, dispossession and intergenerational trauma, Shaun is now devoting himself to working with YarnSMART, a program for First Nations people facing the same challenges. YarnSMART honours culture, country, community and the need for connection, while recognising that Aboriginal and Torres Strait wellbeing and healing has many components.
