Support young people to complete their withdrawal in a safe, comfortable and youth-friendly environment.
Deliver evidence-based alcohol and other drug interventions to help young people reduce the risks and harms associated with substance use.

Support young people to connect with other agencies and community services that can provide ongoing support as needed.
Work collaboratively with young people to create a tailor-made support plan that promotes their overall health and wellbeing.
Provide comprehensive support to parents, families, carers and other people with whom the young person shares an important relationship.

Residential Withdrawal Program
A residential drug and alcohol withdrawal program for children and young people 13 to 21 years old.
The program is a voluntary 11-day live-in program for young people experiencing problems related to their substance use.
Support workers offer intensive support to young people who want to detox or withdraw and are thinking about making changes or stopping their substance use.
The residential unit houses up to five young people at a time.
Staff are available twenty-four hours a day and each person has their own key.
This is a voluntary program.

Axis Community Team
A specialist youth work service that provides support for young people who are concerned about their alcohol and other drug use.

A variety of therapeutic interventions and activities are available to suit each young person, including counselling, care planning and coordination with stakeholders.
