About EYPDAS

If you are worried or concerned about a child or young person who is 18 or under and lives in Essex, then EYPDAS is here for you. We provide a wide range of drug and alcohol help and treatment for young people in Essex.

If you are affected by drug or alcohol use - your own or someone else's - we can direct you to support that will help keep you safe and get things sorted.

EYPDAS works across the county of Essex (excluding Southend and Thurrock). Our staff are based in Satellite premises, but can offer young people appointments in their own locality in venues that they feel comfortable in and at times suitable to them.
