As already described, the Young Hackney’s Substance Misuse Services provides support at Tier 1, 2 and 3 for Hackney and City young people – specialist drug and alcohol treatment is offered at Tier 3.

Young Hackney’s Substance Misuse Services cared for 53 Hackney and City clients in the 12 months to June 2015. No Hackney or City residents require a residential service – if this were needed, individual arrangements would be made either with the adult substance misuse services or the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (see ‘Mental health and substance misuse’ JSNA chapter) as appropriate.
