Substance Misuse Team
Pembrokeshire Youth operate a substance misuse service for young people under 18 whose alcohol or illegal substance use has brought them to the attention of, or at risk of being involved with, the criminal justice system. The team also offer preventative group work and information sessions in the community, schools and other educational settings. This work is available to young people under 25.
The substance misuse team have also produced resources for schools to help them undertake more substance education directly with students. This will allow the team to focus more resources on therapeutic interventions with young people aimed at reducing substance use and associated harms.
For further information contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Free drug and alcohol support for all other young people under 18 is available from Choices.
Choices service offers support, prevention and harm reduction information, and therapeutic and practical help for children, young people and concerned others.
Both Choices and Pembrokeshire Youth Substance Misuse Team offer support using a harm reduction model and meet regularly with CAMHS colleagues to share practice, assess risk and safeguarding and support transition to adult services for all young people open to substance misuse services.
Pembrokeshire Youth and Choices operate a single point of contact for all referrals outside of the youth criminal justice system. For more information visit the Choices Website (opens in a new tab).
