Substance Misuse

The Substance Misuse Service offers a range of services to young people with needs ranging from targeted prevention to individual treatment interventions. We work with a number of agencies in Torbay including the Youth Offending Team, Schools, GP's, A&E and Children’s Services to identify and meet the needs of those with problematic use.

While most work is based around psychological interventions, we also work in partnership with NHS prescribing services for those with extremely complex needs. Work with young people is usually part of a multi-agency response, helping the client to stay safe and make healthier decisions to reduce the detrimental effects of substances both in their present situation and future life.
