  • Experiencing harm as a result of their AOD use.

  • At high risk of escalating their AOD use

The Project also targets the families of young people 12-24 who are participating in the counselling service and assists people working with young people 12-24 who have AOD issues.


OBJECTIVES & OUTCOMES
