The GIVIT is an Intensive Outreach Support Service for young people with problematic alcohol or substance use, commissioned by South Lanarkshire ADP. We can offer support at home, in the community, or in other suitable locations requested by young people. Referrals can be made by Practioners, Family, Friends or Self Referrals from Young People themselves.

Core Service Elements

  • One to One Support

Our Youth Navigators will develop a clear pathway into treatment and recovery initiatives using a person-centred approach.

  • CBT Counselling

Our qualified CBT Counsellors can be accessed quickly within our service providing participants with the most appropriate therapeutic support at the right times.

  • Youth Recovery Community

We have open & inclusive spaces where young people can be supported on their recovery journeys to socialise, participate in groupwork, volunteer and learn new skills.

  • Peer Mentoring

We are committed to providing a confidential, caring and compassionate service for our young people.
