In 2017, SMART Recovery Sioux Falls Wednesday evening meeting moved from Bartels Counseling to Face It Together Sioux Falls. SMART Recovery Family & Friends also moved with us from Bartels Counseling on Wednesdays nights to Tuesday evenings at Face It Together Sioux Falls. We are truly grateful for these two organizations being our hosts. Dave Jansa, the rock of recovery in Sioux Falls, had been the state director for five years before passing it on to Peter Finger.
In 2018, after much decision and thought, Peter moved the Wednesday SMART Recovery Sioux Falls meeting to Choices Recovery, where we have begun a Friday afternoon meeting to make up for the now defunct Sunday evening meeting. Peter’s plan is to begin a third meeting in the future. He is also working on expanding our resources to having a post office box, getting us on the local Helpline, and getting people to become SMART Recovery Facilitators, so we can fulfill three meetings a week and have backup if the current two Facilitators need time off for vacations or other appointments.
I ask that you give our new State Director the honor he deserves, and thank him for all his hard work!
