I really commend and praise your good works. In my eyes you are all heroes and champions, as it takes a very remarkable group of people to achieve all that you have achieved. Our society faces so many challenges but with your oustanding and admirable efforts it seems like we are starting to make light of the challenges and it’s only through foundations and amazing people like yourselves that we can set out to do this. Finally I encourage you to keep up the good efforts and keep strong. Your work will never go in vain.

I was impressed to learn about the wide range of agencies and settings in which SMART members offer care to drug misusers. The provision of a wide range of therapeutic interventions – along with provision of care that improves the experience of being in treatment – is very important in supporting improved self-esteem and recovery from problems of dependence.

I was very encouraged by the dedication of your members. Their determination to improve the lives of drug users, demonstrated by their commitment to the organisations they serve, its greatly appreciated.

I wish you all the very best for your Conference 2005.
