Sorted is the only provider of substance misuse services to under 18s in Northumberland. We help young people find a new direction and move on from drug use.
When we’re talking about drugs, we mean anything from illegal substances like heroin, cocaine, cannabis and mephedrone, to volatile substances like gases, glues and aerosols, to medicinal drugs (which can be misused), alcohol and tobacco and new psychoactive substances which can be freferred to as ‘legal highs’.
Most young people in Northumberland DON’T TAKE DRUGS. However, for a minority, drug use takes over, disrupts their life and becomes a problem. They can become addicted and some end up getting involved in crime, or exposed to risky lifestyles and influences.
There are also health, financial and social risks, not to mention the risk of a criminal offence if caught with an illegal substance.
If you’d like to discuss anything with our team of drugs advisors, please call 01670 500150.
