Subtance use 

 affecting you? 

We can support you to make positive changes to your alcohol or other drug use.

Our Shift workers assist people aged 12 to 25 years who live in Logan or the Redlands and feel like their substance use is getting out of control.

Maybe it’s affecting your relationships, impacting on how you feel physically or mentally, or preventing you from achieving what you want out of life?

We can support you to develop goals and embark on a plan to lead a healthy, independent life.

Our Shift team can tailor its services to your unique needs.

When the team first meets with you, they would like to find out about your substance use, what is going on for you and what your biggest concern is.

They will help you develop a plan to work out what your needs are and what you want to achieve.

This can include help with continuing at school or finding a job, finding somewhere to live, sorting out legal issues or other goals that you identify.

The team will work out which things are your priority and put actions in place to address them.

If you consent, they can also work with your family or other important people so you have the best opportunity to succeed at making the changes you want.

Who is eligible?

Anyone aged 12 to 25 years in Logan and the Redlands who identifies that they have a problem with alcohol or drugs and wants to make positive changes in their life.
