We are With You in Lancashire

We are the commissioned specialist Substance Misuse service for young people up to the age of 25yrs living in Lancashire- excluding Blackpool and Blackburn.

We provide one to one support using a range of psychosocial interventions including Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and ITEP; We also provide Pharmacological Interventions. 

We offer group work and training for young people and professionals on Substance Misuse.  Our services are provided free of charge as we are funded by Lancashire County Council. 

Our service is delivered in community venues including youth centres, Colleges, Schools and Youth Offending Teams; wherever young people are most comfortable to be seen.

We accept referrals from any source including self, parents, schools and colleges, Social Care, Hospitals and Criminal Justice.

Our clients have ranged from an 8yr old requiring cannabis education to 20yr olds accessing support for Heroin and Crack-Cocaine use.  The majority of our referrals are for 15 -18 year olds seeking support to reduce or stop alcohol and cannabis use.

We work alongside the Amy Winehouse Foundation to deliver Resilience Programme in schools.
