Introduction
This report considers the challenges facing SMART Recovery UK and recommend actions toconsider including in a forward plan.A consultation was carried out between April 25
th
and June 11
th
2010 and was based on aset of proposals set out in a document published on the SMART Recovery UK website. Thiswas backed up with an online video presentation, an on-line questionnaire and 4 regionalseminars discussing the proposals. There was an excellent response, with the documentbeing downloaded over 700 times and the video watched over 120 times. Seventy peoplecompleted the on-line questionnaire and the events were attended by over sixty people.This was a very impressive response rates and provides confidence that we have sufficientfeedback to critique the proposals as set out in the consultation document.This report is not however simply a ‘report back’ on the findings of the consultation. Thecommentary and recommendations inevitably rest on some value judgements and opinion,though the author has attempted to make such judgements explicit and closely referencedto the feedback. It is also worth mentioning that the consultant has had operationalautonomy during the review process, this report has not been edited by the board norrecommendations held back on their request.
Summary
1.
 
The historical ‘business model’ pursued by SRUK did not work well and offered poorvalue for money. It must be substantially revised2.
 
The core mission of the organisation should continue to focus on expanding theavailability of high quality peer led SMART Recovery meetings.3.
 
The organisation should remain a partnership between peers and professionals4.
 
A more robust infrastructure of facilitator mentors, training and central supportshould be developed.5.
 
The previously suggested blanket licensing model should not be pursued6.
 
Provide guidance, but not ask for a signed agreement, for organisations that want toprovide informal support to SMART Recovery.7.
 
Offer a formal partnership model, based on signed agreement and license fee fororganisations that want to use SMART Recovery Therapy (name tbc) as an integralpart of their programme.8.
 
The supporter / partnership model should be open to any social care organisation9.
 
Seek funding from local commissioners to fund the Regional Facilitator mentors10.
 
Board to prepare proposals to improve communication and strengthen Peerrepresentation in decision making.
