Support for Volatile Substances Misuse

Most young people who misuse volatile substances do so for a short time in the early stages of adolescence. This misuse may be linked to behaviours that lead to the exclusion of young people from mainstream education. Blue River support services play a significant role in supporting young people through this period of misuse so that they can maintain their participation in education. This could include:

  • Providing counselling and support services from guidance officers.
  • Encouraging young people to attend mainstream education.
  • Establishing referral processes to HIAH.
  • Maintaining links with agencies providing alcohol & drug services to young people.
  • Identifying alternate education programs for young people who are excluded.
  • Working in partnership with the pupil, their parents and the agency assisting a pupil to maintain the pupil’s participation in education.
  • Establish clear goals and expectations for the pupil while at school.
