What will happen if you contact us?

You will be offered an initial appointment to discuss what you would like to change or want information about. This appointment will be where you want it to be (e.g. at your course, school, home or at our office)

We will continue to meet with you and/or your family for as long as you need and want our support. Your contact with us is confidential and in most cases information will only be shared with those you give us consent to share this with.

We will talk with you and agree to a plan to support you to achieve your goals regarding your drug and alcohol use.

We can also meet with and provide information for concerned parents or caregivers if their young person does not wish to meet with us.
