Alcohol / Drugs

 

The REACH service is very flexible and is happy to try and accommodate your wishes so that no-one even needs to know you are seeing us! As a young person you are entitled to confidential support, however, we will try and encourage you to involve other people in your care like a trusted adult. If we think you are at any risk then we may be obliged to share information with other professionals, but would always try to talk this through with you in the first. Alternatively you could contact your local Youth Support Service centre at TRAX  who will be able to offer you advice and support and point you in the direction of services that can help.

Contact Compass REACH on 0800 0087452.

If you are having problems at school, work or home that may be due to the drugs or alcohol you are taking, then you might benefit from talking to a young person's worker. They can provide information and advice about drug and alcohol use as well as giving you an opportunity to talk about what you think and feel is going on for you.
