[Video] DIBs – Tips & Tools for Recovery That Works!

We are pleased to announce the release of our newest Tips & Tools for Recovery that Works! video DIBs.

We all hold beliefs which guide our actions and influence our feelings. But some of these beliefs may be irrational. And many irrational beliefs may be actually harmful to our recovery.

The SMART Recovery tool DIBs stands for disputing irrational beliefs. It’s a system for breaking down why a belief may be irrational and then applying a systematic approach to come up with a more rational belief to help us along in recovery.
