From 1st October 2012, the way you can access support from drug and alcohol services is changing. SMART are becoming the single point of contact anyone in Buckinghamshire who is experiencing difficulties with their drinking or drug taking.
The main difference you will notice are:
All service users will work with a SMART Care Coordinator throughout their time in accessing drug and alcohol services. All residents will access the same service regardless of whether they self refer or come via the criminal justice system.
These changes make the process of referring people into drug and alcohol services much simpler as everyone will start at SMART. We will confirm the new referral process as soon as we can; in the meantime please continue to refer all service users as usual.
Our main base will be bigger offices in High Wycombe, however we will also run services from Aylesbury and deploy our mobile drop-in to other parts of the county, once the need has been assessed. We will keep you posted as we know more.
You can contact us if you feel you need our help or would like advice for a friend or relative:
