This service is a structured support service for young people aged 11-25 years old, living in Northern Ireland, who have been impacted by parental substance misuse and mental health problems.
The Service offers flexible one to one support at a time and place to suit you. Self help support is also available on our website.

We look at:
1. What is living with this like for you
2. Information: Learning more about alcohol and alcohol misuse
3. How do you cope?
4. What supports do you have?
5. Where you can get further support.

We also train other professionals to use the intervention within their own services.
