Mental Health & Addiction Services

Alcohol & Drugs: Youth

We offer a community and school based AOD service for Youth aged between 12 – 19 years. We use a holistic approach in finding out what issues may be causing the young person to use drugs and/or alcohol.

We work one on one with young people, where they feel more comfortable and support is tailored to their needs. The service is led by the young person, where they are able to set their own goals regarding their use (harm reduction, change, abstinence).

Even if they do not make the original referral, your family GP will be kept informed and involved as the primary medical caregiver.

Referrals

Anyone can make a referral, including the young person or their whānau. We get most of our referrals from GP’s, family, friends, medical specialists, school guidance counsellors, Police Youth Aid, school and education services, the Children & Young Persons & Their Families Agency or community groups.

This service is available for youth aged between 12 and 19 years of age
