Dunlea Alcohol and Other Drugs Youth Service helps young people aged 13-19 who want to take control of their drug use.

It doesn’t matter what kind of drugs you are using – or how often. We can help.

We offer many kinds of support to young people who are affected by drugs. Our services include:
– Harm minimisation strategies
– Education about drugs
– Counselling
– Medical referrals
– Safe disposal facilities for injecting equipment or ice pipes

We provide young people in our programs with the information required to make informed decisions about using drugs. If you choose to use, we want you to know how to do so safely.

If you or someone you know needs drug and alcohol support, contact us at Dunlea Monday to Friday between 8am and 4pm.
