Supporting your recovery every step of the way

Services for Young People

We understand that drugs or alcohol can affect many parts of your life. We want to get to know you to understand exactly what you need to turn your life around.

There are no stories to display.

Our young person and young adult service covers both Leicestershire and Leicester City including Rutland and can work with young people or young adult up until 25th Birthday.

We work across the city and the county seeing young people wherever it suits them – this means we can come to you to ensure you are getting the help and support you need. We offer a non-judgemental service and are here to support you – whatever the issue.

We can help you with the following:

  • 1:1 sessions
  • Outreach service – we can meet you where it suits you
  • Education about drugs and alcohol
  • Space to talk things through
  • Up to date and factual information and advice
  • Support to look at drug or alcohol use, what you are using, how much and how often
  • Help with deciding what changes you want to make
  • Support to cut down, quit and gain control
  • Access and support to other services which can support you
  • A support plan that looks at all of you, not just about your drug or alcohol use

We begin by doing a full and comprehensive assessment to help you determine your treatment goals. Once we have done this, we can:

  • Provide treatment to suit your individual needs
  • Look at triggers, learn new ways to cope and work out what you want from working with us
  • Harm minimisation
  • Brief interventions
  • Signposting and support to access other services
  • Targeted group work

Research indicates that many factors can increase the risk of a young person moving from ‘substance use’ to ‘substance misuse’, whilst some protective factors can reduce these risks. Unless you are a specialist drug & alcohol worker it can be difficult to distinguish between ‘use’ and ‘misuse’. Use our Drug Use Screening Tool to help you.
