How We Help Child & Youth Alcohol and other drug support

Alcohol & Other Drugs Support

Support to reach your hopes and dreams


It takes a lot for someone to admit they might need help with alcohol or other drugs. Talking to someone from Drug ARM can provide a helping hand and emotional support. Our experienced team offer free, confidential and non-judgemental support to young people.

We assist young people who want help  to make positive changes related to their alcohol or other drug use. Our team support young people as they work towards their hopes and dreams.

We can help with health, relationships, self-esteem, education, mental health, connecting with community and more.

If you are interested in learning more, contact us and discuss whether a Drug ARM program is right for you.


When you speak to us, we will ask you a bit about your life and match you with a program that can help you work towards your hopes and dreams.

We have found that we are able to provide a successful match most of the time; however, if you start the process and you feel your program isn’t a good fit for you, please speak with us.

We recognise that the reasons young people use alcohol or other drugs can be complex, and therefore our main goal is to support them to progressively reduce the harms on their terms.

This can range from reducing how much you are using alcohol or other drugs, to not using them at all. It can also mean dealing with issues such as mental health, relationships, anger or other areas before addressing alcohol and other drug use.

We work with each young person to achieve their short term and long terms goals, and provide practical solutions to experience positive changes in their lives.

We make sure that all of the workers in our youth programs have experience helping young people make positive changes in their lives.

Drug ARM might be right for you if you are looking to make a positive change in your life.

If you feel that something is preventing you from feeling happy, or from achieving your hopes and dreams, we may be able to help. We can help with stress, relationships, mental health, self-esteem, education, and connecting with your community.

If we aren’t able to help you, we’ll help you find a service that can.

Our alcohol and other drug support programs are free.

We offer face to face support in our office, in your home, in a safe space in the community or via telephone.

You can call or email us to have a chat or book an appointment.
