Youth Drug and Alcohol Project

Young person talking to a worker

Our Youth Drug and Alcohol Project (YDAP) team offers specialist services for young people (aged up to 18 years old) living in the Sunderland area who have complex needs associated with substance misuse.

YDAP works with young people whose substance use is impacting on their life in a negative way, such as impacting on:

  • Physical or mental health
  • Housing
  • Family
  • Education
  • Offending behaviour

How we work

We will meet young people anywhere that is comfortable for them. This might be at home, at school, at a youth club etc.

We will complete an initial assessment to see what support you require and together we will agree a plan of action to achieve what is required. We will meet with you regularly to help, support and motivate you.

Confidentiality

Any work completed with YDAP is confidential. This means that whatever is discussed stays between you and your worker, unless it is deemed as a safeguarding issue. However, to help you get the best outcomes, our workers will always encourage you to include your parent or carer in your treatment journey.
