Youth Drug and Alcohol Clinical Services

The Youth Drug and Alcohol Clinical Service (YDACS) is a youth specific drug and alcohol service, that works with young people aged 12 – 18 years of age who need help due to their moderate to severe drug and/or alcohol use. When a young person has a “moderate to severe” substance use problem, the drug or alcohol use may be impacting on their mental health (heightened anxiety, depression, psychosis), attendance at school or work, relationships with family and friends, their overall health (weight loss, sexual problems) and finances (in debt). Although using drugs might seem a good way to feel good and manage some difficult emotions, it can be really risky, leading to ongoing physical and mental health issues and for some people, death.
