Family/Systemic Therapist Adolescent Addiction Service.

Challenge & Change

The Adolescent Addiction Service was established in 1997 in response to increasing numbers of young people presenting to health services with significant drug problems. The pattern of drug use has changed as alcohol, benzodiazepines, synthetic drugs and cocaine are currently the most frequently used. The adolescent Addiction Service is an adaptive response to changing needs. Through work with young people and their families combined with community supports, it has been possible to engage meaningfully with young people at an early stage in their substance use.
