We Offer Support With

We can support you with any queries you have regarding substance misuse.

We know it can be difficult to engage young people in services when issues have been identified. We can help by providing screening tools, information, advice and a point of contact to help you best support young people and their families. Where necessary joint appointments can be arranged with you to help engage young people who may be ambivalent to change.

We also provide individual support for parents and carers whether or not the young person is accessing the D’n’A service themselves.

We are happy to assist you and your team with training in drugs & alcohol awareness. This may enable you to respond effectively and deliver interventions as well as identify the most appropriate referral pathways.
