One 80 Young Person’s Alcohol & Drug Service

The Bridge Project are commissioned by Bradford Council to provide a comprehensive drug and alcohol service for young people up to age 21 living across the district of Bradford who are concerned about their substance misuse issues, including:

  • Alcohol.
  • Cannabis.
  • Stimulants (Amphetamine/Cocaine).
  • Club Drugs and Novel Psychoactive Substances (NSP).
  • Opiates and Crack.

We also support family members, friends, schools, social workers, and other professionals who are concerned about a young person’s use of drugs and alcohol.

Our highly trained substance misuse support practitioners provide a confidential and personalised service for young people helping them to identify issues with drugs and alcohol and develop a tailored care plan focused on their strengths and needs alongside clear risk and safety education around their use. Our team work in close partnership with the young person and anyone involved in their life. This may include; family members, children’s social care, schools, youth offending team, CAMHS and wider networks of support that are important to the young person.

We accept referrals from young people, family members, and a wide range of professionals. All referrals are responded to within 1 working day and the team provide regular updates and feedback where appropriate. We do not require signed consent, but the young person needs to have consented to the referral so that we can effectively engage with them.

Following referral we contact the young person and arrange to meet them at a time and place that suits their needs. Our team is based on an outreach model, taking the service to young people in the community, providing support at a range of appropriate venues including home visits, schools, PRUs, college settings, and community centres.

What we offer:

  • Confidential support led by the young person.
  • Comprehensive assessment including personal strengths, substance misuse issues, mental and physical health, wellbeing, safeguarding, family, and social needs.
  • Access to wide range of online advice, information, and self-help resources.
  • Advice, prevention, and early intervention for lower risk misuse.
  • Structured treatment for complex needs and established patterns of use.
  • Consultation and support for family members, friends, schools, social workers, and other professionals where consent has been given.
  • Supported referrals to a wide range of community services for mental health, social isolation, education, peer mentoring, healthy activities, family, and relationship support.
  • Management of treatment transition pathways for young adults.
