Drug and Alcohol Service (Child and Adolescent)

We provide assessment and targeted therapeutic intervention for children and young people who present with a significant substance misuse problem, as well a moderate to severe emotional and physical needs.  This is often referred to as a co-morbid presentation or dual diagnosis.

The service in made up of a team of two staff members with training within CAMHS and substance misuse.  They provide assessment and intervention to young people and families to reduce and/or abstain substance use through therapeutic treatments and intervention. Alongside this, the team offers support and consultation to practitioners both internal to CAMHS and externally within the communities as a form of outreach.

One of the key aims of the service is to provide a safe, equitable and accessible service for children and young people, and their families, most in need of the Drug and Alcohol Mental Health Service.
