Halo drop-in service can be accessed by simply walking through our door.
Halo staff will be here to assist you by providing information and advice, to take a referral
or to direct you to other services that you may need.
Tuesday’s 10am -12pm
Thursday’s 3pm – 5pm
Our service is free and confidential, to help any young person who wants help with their substance use.
Why you might come
It doesn't matter why you have come true the door, we’re just glad you did!!!
Every young person is welcomed, respected and not judged
So whats it really like???
First someone, your parents, someone who works with you and cares about you gets in contact with us. We get some basic info from them (your age, where your from what YOUR concerns are.) we try to organise an appointment for you as soon as we can.
After you and your family meet with us and if you have decided that you would like to do some work with us, we do what is called an assessment (not a test or anything like that). This is a chat to help us get to know you a little better and get an idea of how particular substances are affecting different parts of your life - your relationships with your family and friends your education and so on…
After the assessment, together we start to make a plan about how we’re going to help you work on ways to improve your life. This is a plan you’re fully involved in - along with your family and anyone else we all feel can help you reach your goal.
