Young People

Drug and alcohol misuse can be just as confusing and worrying for those who are suffering from addiction as it is to their loved ones. The effect that drug and alcohol use has on younger people is different from the effect that it has on adults. This page offers information on what the effects of alcohol and drugs are, how to stay safe, the law around them and advice to those who are concerned about addiction.
