Drugaid is working in partnership with SMART Recovery UK (http://www.smartrecovery.org.uk/) to deliver mutual aid and peer support groups. The groups are run by ex-service users who have completed a training course run by SMART Recovery UK and the focus is on peer support and helping each other.
Regular groups are being held in:
- Swansea office
- The Next Step, Pontypridd
- The Phoenix, Caerphilly
- The Lighthouse, Pontypool
- Allied House, Haverfordwest office
- Parish Hall, Llanelli
- No 25, Aberystwyth
Drugaid runs Smart groups during the day, evenings and weekends in certain areas
Two Drugaid staff members in every area are SMART Recovery champions.
