Youth Alcohol and Other Drugs Service

Our service helps young people aged 12 – 18 years who are seeking support for alcohol and/or drug concern.

Our staff provide individual counselling, working alongside young people to help them achieve their goals.

A young person will have a drug and alcohol assessment to identify the substance of concern, severity of drug use, motivation to change, and treatment goals.

All our services are free of charge to Medicare card holders and have a focus on reducing harms associated with substance use.

Assistance for people over 18 is available from our Alcohol and Other Drugs Service.
