Barnardos Freagarrach Alcohol and Drug Service

Helping families overcome problems caused by alcohol and drugs

We believe it`s important to help all family members overcome problems caused by alcohol and drugs. Young people who use alcohol and illegal drugs are at increased risk of: 

  • missing school 
  • poor health
  • committing crime
  • being sexually exploited

Where it is the parent with a drug and/or alcohol problem, children are more likely to be neglected, suffer domestic violence and misuse drink and drugs themselves.

We offer counselling and support for children, young people and their parents to help them turn their lives around. 

We focus on the children. We listen to them so we can understand their problems. We offer them advice and support such as: 
  • teaching them basic life skills like reading and writing 
  • access to computers and IT training
  • subsidised meals and laundry services if they are homeless

Our experienced children and young person workers offer information, advice, support and professional interventions to children and young people aged 11-25 years around their own or somebody else’s substance use and misuse. 

We offer a friendly, non-judgemental, and confidential service working on a one-to-one and group basis in a wide range of settings.
