DSA is experiencing an increase in referrals to the DBMAS program. Please be reassured that phone support will be provided to any client while awaiting a DBMAS visit. We welcome the announcement of additional funding for the DBMAS program to increase the service capacity. This will support DSA in the service expectation of receiving a DBMAS visit within 1 week. The SBRT service does not operate a waiting list for visits and is unaffected. Please contact us with any questions.

If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 000.
