We are a young people’s substance misuse service for under 25's. We cover Preston, South Ribble, Chorley and West Lancashire. Our work is mainly conducted in one to ones using a variety of psychosocial interventions. We conduct group work for young people and professionals around drugs and alcohol and take part in outreach engaging young people in their own environment. If needed, we have access to prescribing for those who require pharmaceutical interventions.
We see clients in community venues including youth centres; colleges schools and youth offending teams with drop ins at the Urban Exchange.
