Welcome to SMART, the Substance Misuse Assessment and Referral Team, a branch of EDAS working as the single point of access to drug and alcohol services in Poole for adults aged 18+.

Here at SMART we offer a service to anyone wishing to seek help for drug and alcohol related issues, and point you in the right direction to making the positive steps into recovery. Our mission is to provide accessible services to move individuals into a place of wellbeing.

We know it isn’t easy to seek help for drug and alcohol problems, and that is why we offer a free and confidential service to each and every client. We are able to offer detailed assessments and together we will decide upon the most appropriate treatment plan.

At SMART we understand that everyone is different and therefore, it is our fundamental belief that with the right guidance and resources, all of our clients can make remarkable changes to their lives. We see ourselves, not as treatment providers, but as care– coordinators, and we will communicate with all the relevant services on your behalf to ensure that you are having the best outcome possible. We are simply here to guide your journey into making those positive life changes.
