Making some bad choices lately around drugs or alcohol?
Our Youth Outreach teams help young people between 12 and 25 years, who may be having problems with alcohol or drugs.
We help young people understand the effects of drug and alcohol misuse and support them to take positive steps towards enjoying a full and rewarding life.
We also take calls from family and friends who may be worried about a young person who has alcohol or drug problems. Need help in approaching your teenager or supporting your friend? Give us a call.
WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE?
We provide individual counselling, group programs, education, information and advice. We work with young people to inspire them to make positive life changes and can help them access other services if required.
