  • Lots of young people in touch with youth services are taking considerable risks with substances; almost none would be eligible for treatment services. Local youth services and organisations that work with vulnerable young people are a highly effective means of reaching this group. Motivational Interviewing can be used effectively by youth workers to help young people to reduce risky behaviours. Smartphone Apps and web surveys are an effective medium for researching young people’s behaviours and evidence change over time.
