CHILD & ADOLESCENT PSYCHOTHERAPY & COUNSELLING SERVICES
Within the Primary Care Service, the Child Psychotherapy and Counselling Services provides 12 - 15 week interventions to children and adolescents. These clinics are held within the Western Health & Social Care Trust areas of Strabane, Enniskillen, Omagh and Derry. Our contract with the Northern Health & Social Care Trust also means that we have referrals from the Glengormley and Antrim areas. All referrals are made through the respective local CAMH's teams or GP's. Our outcome research studies have shown that after using our service, children are less afraid to speak about their problems and difficulties they are experiencing.
DRUG & ALCOHOL OUTREACH SERVICES
Based within the north Antrim area, this services acts as a 'signposting service', assisting people with alcohol and drug addiction to seek help from statutory services. Demand for these type of services is very high and if present trends are anything to go by, they will not be lessening any time soon. The surging uprise in the numbers of younger as well as older people with addictions to alcohol or drugs/or both continues to cause concern and distress, not only to the users but also to their wider family circle. Constant threats from 'legal highs' and other 'hard' drugs presents a challenging and on-going job for our outreach workers to deal with.
