Altered High (Youth)

Altered High is CADS youth service  for young people aged 13 - 19 and their family/whānau. We are a mobile community service and travel to see young people in an environment most suitable for them such as at school or at work.

We see young people with questions or concerns about their alcohol and/or other drug use. Some of our young people may also have mental health and substance use problems.

A Rainbow comunities clinician is available.

We liaise with other agencies who are supporting young people.
