Cambridgeshire Child and Adolescent Substance Use Service (CASUS) provides information, support and specialist treatment in Cambridgeshire around drug and alcohol use to young people and their families.

How this service can help you

CASUS is part of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust. The team is staffed by nurses, substance misuse practitioners, social workers as well as a child and adolescent psychiatrist. The team sees young people who have concerns about drugs and alcohol (including legal/chemical highs, volatile substances/gases as well as illegal drugs).

CASUS offers specialist treatment, interventions, support and information for all types of substance use.

We provide support for the families and carers of substance misusing young people and, we see young people who are affected by the substance misuse of someone close to them.
CASUS has an interest in reaching those young people that are seen as hard to engage. Our aim is to offer intensive support and treatment to these vulnerable young people whom sometimes have complex needs. In these cases substance misuse can be part of a range of significant difficulties that may include mental health, sexual health, family relationships, housing, education etc, and the team actively engages in multi-agency working to promote the resolution of these difficulties.

The team is one of a growing number in the UK using the innovative Adolescent Mentalization Based Integrative Therapy – AMBIT.
