News update 10 November 2023

  • In the last four weeks, D15 Family Support has completed 31 one-to-one sessions with people affected by a loved one's drug or alcohol use.
  • The Family Education Support Worker has completed Phase 1 of the School Health and Alcohol Harm Reduction Project (SHAHRP) in a local secondary school. SHAHRP is an evidence based programme available for use in schools and other settings that, if implemented as documented, can reduce risky drinking and alcohol related harm in young people. SHAHRP is the first school alcohol harm reduction programme in the world to assess its participants for behavioural outcomes. The programme has been proven to be markedly successful in improving the knowledge, attitudes and, most importantly, drinking behaviours or young people.
