For Friends and Family

N-Gage, Choices and Sorted work with young people affected by somebody else’s substance use and adults affected by the substance use of young people in their lives.

We can offer one-to-one sessions to help you make sense of your situation and help you start to plan how you move forward.

It can be a worrying time finding out that your loved one uses substances.

You may feel a range of emotions from shock through to anger.
