SMS provides expertise on recovery orientated services

SMS directors have twenty year experience of working in substance misuse services in the UK. We have worked across these times with changing priorities from the introduction of HIV in the eighties leading to new harm reduction initiatives to the focus on reducing crime in the nineties and noughties. We now face a new challenge of moving forward on recovery focused services. In fact it is more like moving back to where the sector was twenty years ago.

SMS advocate for a balance treatment system. We have lots of experience of commissioning recovery focused services over the last couple of years. SMS can support local areas and partnerships to develop the Recovery Champions. We are currently involved in the Recovery Group UK and the Recovery Partnership.
