What can we do for you?
Our services help young people in who are worried about their use of alcohol or drugs, or concerned about how substance abuse is affecting another young person. All our young people services are trauma informed. A young person has a choice on:
- Where they are seen
- Being seen on their own or with some one you trust
- Choice of a male or female worker
- A volunteer to buddy up with.
Our services are strictly confidential. We will only talk with other agencies if we are worried about your safety. If we do this, we will always tell you why.
