Youthinc provides services to support young people with complex substance misuse and addiction problems.
We have a multi disciplinary team of substance misuse specialists with many years experience.
We operate across the full range of drugs, alcohol and legal substances and specialise in working with young people who have additional very complex presentations such as mental health, behavioural and neuro-developmental problems.
We have expertise in working with challenging and hard to reach young people and can advise and can offer support to young people who are in the process of transition from secure to community settings, into adult services or from treatment/hospital.
COLLABORATION – We have expertise in advising professionals in complex prescribing cases. We have worked with numerous local authorities to advice and support suitable community placements where substance misuse is an issue. Our multi systemic approach enables local teams to co-ordinate treatment and other interventions in a young person centred style.
We can offer comprehensive substance misuse assessments and devise care plans that identify interventions which help to reduce risk, encourage positive change and reduce substance misuse. We offer support directly to young people and their families.
FAMILIES – We are able to support parents and carers in their own right, including when the young person is deciding treatment.
TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT – Our team can work with you to develop and deliver bespoke training courses which can be substance specific, screening and identification, assessment and care planning and delivering interventions.
QUALITY – We are also able to support young peoples services to audit quality and ensure that they are operating within accepted standards of practice or advise on Commissioning Young Peoples Services
