Hampshire 24/7 (Substance Misuse Support)

County-wide service offering specialist, targeted and family support for children and young people effected by substance misuse.

Young people under 25-years-old

A county wide, community engagement based service offering targeted and specialist treatment to young people aged 25 years and under. We offer a multi professional team with a designated worker in each district of Hampshire supported by our partnership with Inclusion Recover Hampshire, and Parent Support Link.

Under 18

Our service has a wide range of substance misuse interventions offering young people a confidential and non-judgemental support regarding the use of drugs and alcohol to enable informed choice, harm reduction and improved health and wellbeing. The service offers a community engagement model, supporting children and young people where they feel most comfortable.

Our joint approach offers designated CAMHS Link Practitioners, and we offer expertise to our wider partnerships such as youth offending, children’s services, youth support, education and offer specific joined approaches for children at risk of criminal exploitation and wider health risks such as smoking cessation, nutritional and sleep management.

Where there is identified vulnerability and complex need, consultation is offered with a Consultant Psychiatrist and health professional, developing a wraparound service responding to individual need.

Information is also provided regarding best practice and evidence of the use of new psychoactive substances and Xanax, in recognition of the service’s expertise in these areas.

18-25 years

Working with our partnership we offer a designated transitional service for young adults aged 18 – 25 years supported by nurses, doctors, social work qualified and clinical leads. Our expertise ensures every young person is offered an age appropriate service across all elements of service delivery.

Children of Substance Misusing Parents- Inclusion22

From October 2018, we launch our new service dedicated to offering support for children aged 8 – 17 years, offering support and advice. The work will be a mix of group and 1:1 support, delivered in community settings using a wide range of age appropriate interventions to ensure that the immediate presenting needs of the child are addressed in a timely manner with due regard taken to identify, monitor and manage risk in relation to safeguarding concerns and to demonstrate confidence in escalating referrals to statutory agencies where appropriate.
