Blackburn with Darwen Public Health team want any young person who feels that their relationship with drugs or alcohol is becoming, or already is, a problem to get the help, advice and support that they need. The service is available for young people up to 25 years old.

We have Substance Misuse service for young people giving them the information they need to make informed choices.

Where a young person needs more specific support with drug and alcohol issues, we have trained professionals in our Young Person’s Drug and Alcohol Team who can help.

Our local drug and alcohol service is experienced, professional, friendly and non-judgemental. The service is young person centered, accessible to anyone and is free of charge.

Their aim is to provide a personalised package of support options that will help our young people understand and begin to tackle their substance misuse issues.

We understand that some young people may just need advice and information, this is always available and, importantly, it might prevent problems getting worse.

Advice is also available to help people remain drug or alcohol free.

The service is available to family members and concerned others who may be worried about someone else’s substance use.
