Youth Reaching Out Program

Is your use of alcohol, tobacco and / or other drugs starting to affect your motivation, school work, relationships with your parents, family and friends?

Would you like to talk to someone who understands in a safe, comfortable and non-judgemental environment?

The CatholicCare Reaching Out Program provides free alcohol and drug counselling to young people aged 13-18 years. Our Counselling sessions are provided through outreach, which means rather than having to come to us, we can meet you in a place where you feel most comfortable; be it your school, community centre, or work place.

Our counsellors understand that being lectured about Drugs and Alcohol is not necessarily what you need. The Reaching Out Program is an opportunity to talk with someone who is qualified to help you figure out what works best for you.

We also offer support for families and friends of people impacted by alcohol and other drugs.

If you would like to explore your options, visit our website www.catholiccare.cg.org.au, email at reachingout@catholiccare.cg.org.au or call us on 02 6163 7695 to arrange a time to chat with one of our counsellors.
