How we can help

When it comes to recovery, we know that everyone’s goals are different, whether that’s making small changes, stopping completely, or finding new ways to stay safe and healthy. Whatever it is that you want to achieve, we’ll support you to get there - and we’ll be WithYou every step of the way.

One-to-one support for young people in Redcar and Cleveland who are facing challenges with drugs and alcohol.

One of our Young Person's Workers will meet with you regularly to help you work through some of the things you are struggling with.

You can bring a parent or another person you trust, if you feel nervous about coming to see us.

Group work is helpful because it helps you learn from other people’s experiences and shows you that you are not alone. Many of the young people who work in our groups form strong bonds and friendships. 

You'll work together with a small group of young people on a specific issue that you share. Your Young Person's Worker will talk to you about groups, to see if this is the right option for you.

Some of our staff are trained in CRAFT (Community Reinforcement and Family Training) and can offer support to families/carers.

A member of the WithYou Young Persons team is trained in acupuncture and is able to offer this complementary therapy to clients over the age of 13 (with consent).

Please get in touch with us to learn more. 

Our services in Redcar and Cleveland provide Naloxone. 

The Naloxone injection (Prenoxad) or nasal spray (Nyxoid) are life saving substances that can prevent overdose. They work by reversing the effects of opioid drugs such as heroin, morphine and methadone. 

We provide people who use substances with Naloxone and training on how to respond to an overdose situation.

We also make Naloxone available to family members and friends, and provide training for them too. 

Blood borne viruses (BBVs) are viruses that spread through blood, and in some cases, bodily fluids. 

If you attend one of our drug or alcohol services, you will be offered a free BBV test. You can also ask for a test when you register with a service.

Harbour’s Young People’s Team supports those aged 3-17 across Redcar and Cleveland affected by domestic abuse, including young people experiencing abuse in interpersonal relationships and young people who are demonstrating harmful behaviours to parents/carers or within interpersonal relationships.

The support to children/young people is delivered therapeutically through arts, crafts, toys, games and age-appropriate activities.

They offer group and 1:1 support depending on the child/young person’s individual needs at community-based locations. We also offer support virtually if deemed appropriate and safe.
