Cranstoun Wokingham delivers the drug & alcohol recovery service for adults here in Wokingham. There is a separate and dedicated service for young people up to the age of 18 (Here4YOUth).
You dont have to come to the service - we can meet you at home, at school, or college - wherever you feel most comfortable, and at a time that is good for you.
We also offer advice, support and guidance for children and young people to cope with someone else's drug or alcohol misuse.

Young people here in Wokingham are frequently exposed to drugs and alcohol. Some of you may already be using substances and need support, while others of you will have questions and might be on the edge of making a decision to drink alcohol or use drugs. There will be many, perhaps like you, trying to deal with another person's drinking or drug taking, especially during these testing times. It's VITAL we reach young people and let you know the truth and facts about substances. The team will be promoting harm reduction and pathways into treatment.
