ST Helens Council’s award winning Young People’s Drug and Alcohol Team is celebrating a decade of success.

During the past 10 years it has provided a wide range of services to young people, including one to one support, with over 2000 individuals

experiencing drug or alcohol misuse.

More than 80 per cent of young people engaging with the team complete intervention successfully. A vast number of young people have also taken part in group sessions in order to increase their awareness of the risks and harms of substance misuse.
