Information for professionals 

The Drop-in team are part of a city-wide network of organisations collectively known as the Young Person’s Substance Use Service (YPSUS). We work with young people who are taking drugs and alcohol and offer one to one support and treatment.

We also offer bespoke drug and sexual health workshops for young people which aim to challenge opinions around risky behaviours, build confidence and resilience and promote positive wellbeing. Training is also available for anyone working with young people who would like to increase their knowledge of the risks associated with drugs and effective harm reduction strategies and develop confidence in discussing drug and alcohol issues. To find out more please download the information leaflet or contact us.
