Derbyshire CGL

young people

Derbyshire CGL is a free and confidential drug and alcohol outreach service for young people up to the age of 19.

We support young people who are using drugs or alcohol, feel they have a problem and want some help. We’re not here to judge you or tell you what to do, but we can help you make the changes you want to make.

We know it can sometimes be difficult to talk openly and honestly, especially about drugs and alcohol so we try to make it as easy as we can for you. We will come to see you where you want to be seen. This could be at school, college, a youth centre or even at home.

How to contact us

We always welcome new clients, so please get in touch if you are interested in getting help from the service or you’d just like to ask some questions. Feel free to bring someone with you for your first appointment.
