Outreach Substance Use Counselling for Youth

ASTRA supports youth aged 13-19 with substance use concerns, providing supportive and relational counselling services based on their needs, readiness, and commitment to change. The program meets youth on a one-to-one outreach basis in their communities. ASTRA counsellors follow a bio-psycho-social-spiritual perspective to help youth reach goals that promote wellness around problematic substance use.


Participant Quote

“Having an ASTRA counsellor helped me so much! She helped me overcome my problematic use and connected me to other supports like mental health and getting into an alternate school so I could catch up and graduate. It was amazing that they do outreach, I would have never made it to an office for help and she didn’t judge me for using substances, or some of my other dumb ass teenage choices. She was kind and helpful and I wouldn’t have overcome my addictions without her support. I would recommend this program to any teen who wants to make changes to their drug and alcohol use. ASTRA Counsellors will just help you make your life better.” ~ Anonymous

The service is free.

We support youth as long as they have a desire to work on substance use goals or are transitioned to adult substance use services.

Astra will come to youth in the community where they are at. We can meet you at school, pick you up from home, we can meet you in the community and we can drop you off after session. Astra is designed to met the needs of youth who are less inclined to meet in office settings.
