Youth Alcohol and Other Drugs

What we aim to do: Salvation Army Pathways Alcohol and Other Drug Youth Outreach   Program provides intensive case management support to young people, who are experiencing significant issues with alcohol and other drugs.

Workers act to empower young people in creating a wider variety of support networks. Each young person will have their own individual treatment plan (ITP) designed to address specific alcohol and other drug issues.

Who is eligible? Young people aged between 12-25 years of age, who currently have issues or are at risk in regards to Alcohol & Other Drugs.

Location of services: Hume Region

More about this service:  Each young person who experiments or regularly use alcohol and other drugs will have a unique and different experience.  The effects on each young person will vary as well as impacting on different aspects of that young person’s life.

Young People who access the ALCOHOL & Other Drugs service will receive assurance of confidentiality and privacy regarding information disclosed to the Pathways worker. The role of the Pathways worker is to support and empower young people in achieving goals and to overcome issues they are currently facing.
