What we offer
We are a young people’s substance misuse service for under 25s. We cover Preston, South Ribble, Chorley and West Lancashire. Our work is mainly conducted in one to ones using a variety of psychosocial interventions (MI, BSFT, CBT and ITEP). We conduct group work for young people and professionals around drugs and alcohol and take part in outreach engaging young people in their own environment. If needed, we have access to prescribing for those who require pharmaceutical interventions.
We see clients in community venues including youth centres; college’s schools and youth offending teams. We receive referrals from a variety of sources including self, parents, schools, hospitals and criminal justice.
We deal with all drugs and alcohol, including NPS/legal highs. Our clients have ranged from an 8 year old for cannabis education to 20 year olds on heroin and crack cocaine. In the main we receive referrals for 15 -18 year olds for alcohol and cannabis.
We have recently appointed a Young People’s domestic abuse support worker for Central Lancashire
We have opportunities throughout Lancashire for anyone 18+ to be part of our volunteer programme. With our training and support you can make a difference whilst also; learning new skills, improving your confidence, giving something back and improving your health and well being. Please note that potential volunteers from the recovery community must have a minimum of 12 months substance free. For more information please call your local office.
Our aim is to offer an accessible, informative and holistic service to our young people and their families, focusing on all their needs and helping them achieve all their goalsManager
