The service aims to reduce a young person’s alcohol or other drug use and to minimise harm caused by use. The program also helps participants to manage other problems like mental health, education, family and legal issues.
Participation in the program is voluntary and individuals wanting assistance can self refer. The program also takes referrals from the criminal justice system through ACSO (Australian Community Support Organisation).
When appropriate, Odyssey House Victoria also refers young people to a number of its partner organisations, for additional support or treatment.
