Don’t think you have to face it on your own. We can offer information and advice if you’re worried about a child and think they may have a drug, alcohol or solvent related problem.
Parents and carers, whose children are currently engaged with Sorted, can also receive support from our team of experienced advisors.
This support comprises of education and information, fears and concerns, legal status and risk factors around substance use. The support is designed to reduce anxiety and complement the service
being provided to the young person.
