The last group will be 16 December 2021 and we’ll be looking at restarting things again in the New Year (a few weeks into Jan)

Taking a Break Group is a group for people aged 15-19 who are using drugs and alcohol and who:

• Are concerned about or want to change their use
• Need to access support after business hours
• Have legal issues such as diversion, probation, Police involvement etc

During the group we will:

  • Explore beliefs about using substances
  • Help motivate you to make change
  • Look at ways to reduce the harms associated with using alcohol and other drugs

If you would like to attend please book with your counsellor or the duty counsellor

Please do not use alcohol or other drugs
