Odyssey House Youth & Family Services provides outreach and centre-based programs and services to young people aged 12 to 24 and their families. Odyssey House Victoria’s committed to child safety and is a child safe organisation.
The service aims to reduce a young person’s alcohol or other drug use and to minimise harm caused by use. The program also helps participants to manage other problems like mental health, education, family and legal issues.
Participation in the program is voluntary and individuals wanting assistance can self-refer. The program also takes referrals from the criminal justice system through ACSO (Australian Community Support Organisation).
Youth & Family Services Programs:
Youth alcohol and other drug counselling: where young people can discuss their issues and concerns in a safe, non-judgmental environment.
Dual diagnosis counselling: A counselling service for young people suffering from mental health and drug and alcohol issues, delivered in partnership with headspace Southern Melbourne.
Family alcohol and other drug counselling: where families can gain an understanding of one another’s issues and work towards a group resolution.
Outreach: Assertive follow-up and counselling with at-risk young people.
The Odyssey Camp Out: An annual camp to provide at-risk young people with respite, life-skills training and meaningful life experiences.
Building Resilience in Secondary Schools: A holistic program that places a youth clinician at secondary schools to provide youth and family counselling, support, referral, drug education, secondary consultation and staff professional development.
