We are Wolverhampton 360

We are here for anyone under 18 who wants honest advice and guidance, support and/or treatment for anything to do with drugs or alcohol use. You can talk to us in confidence. We never judge you.

We also help 18 to 25 year olds who are vulnerable and/or have additional needs.

The risks

Risks can increase when you:

  • Drink alcohol or use drugs on your own
  • Use more than one drug, or use drugs and alcohol at the
    same time
  • Accept drugs or alcohol from someone you don’t know

Remember:

It is illegal to buy alcohol if you are under 18.

Cannabis is illegal. If you use it you risk being given a fine, a criminal record or even imprisonment.

I think Wolverhampton 360 has helped my family cut down on drinking. It has helped me make my voice heard because it’s been safe to talk.

Staying safe

Drugs and alcohol can affect everyone differently. Our service is available to help you reduce the harm and risks of using drugs and alcohol.

How to talk to us

You can call or email us in confidence. If you’d rather talk to us face to face, we can come and meet you wherever you feel most comfortable – that could be in your school or college, youth club, at home or in a safe place in the community.

What we can do for you

We will work with you to help you understand more about substances and support you to make the changes you want to make.

You can have one-to-one sessions with your own treatment worker. You may find that you are happy with one or two sessions, or you may want some extra support. Either is fine.
