Spectrum FYP is a free and confidential drug and alcohol service for young people aged under 18, young adults up to the age of 25 and their families in Hertfordshire. We offer a range of services including one-to-one sessions with a recovery worker, group work, access to counselling, sexual health support and advice on image-enhancing drugs (i.e. steroids) and new psychoactive substances (i.e. Spice). We work as an outreach service across the county. We also offer support if you are affected by someone else’s’ drug or alcohol use and substance awareness education in schools and colleges.​
