Programs available at AFM:

COMPASS IN-HOUSE YOUTH PROGRAM: Compass is an in-house program near Portage La Prairie for young people between 13-18+ who want support to change their use of alcohol or drugs. It’s a place to learn about yourself, develop new skills, and move forward in your life.

COMMUNITY BASED YOUTH SERVICES: Community Based Youth Services provides services for young people from age 12 and up who are either directly involved in problem alcohol, drug or gambling behavior or who are affected by someone else’s involvement. Youth counsellors will now be accessible to existing and future clients from new locations across Winnipeg.

Co-locating youth counsellors within agencies will enhance access to treatment and also facilitate an easier referral process for youth. Existing youth clients will continue to receive support and services from either their current counsellors or a counsellor who is closer to where they live.
