A Youth Alcohol and Other Drug Counsellor works out of the Youth Specialist Service team and offers an outpatient clinic for young people aged 14 - 18 years and their families providing assessment, education and individually designed treatment packages. This service is available for individuals in the Dunedin area but the counsellor will provide advice to rural teams when needed.
