Gateshead's young people Drug and Alcohol team is situated in Unit 3, Renwick Court, Victoria Road, Gateshead. The service allows young people, children or minors to make an informed choice about their lifestyle regarding substance and alcohol use.
We work with any young people up to the age of 18. Our workers are available to work with these young people on issues surrounding drug and alcohol use. We provide information, advice and practical support to young people, parents/carers and other family members.
At Platform we focus upon building on positives and strengths. We will ensure that anyone accessing our service is offered a safe, comfortable environment and a worker who will listen and not judge. We believe that confidentiality and trust is a crucial part of our service and our workers will always try to maintain this.
We hope to enable all young people to live healthy and lead safe lives.
