Established in 1998, Youth Support + Advocacy Service (YSAS) offers a range of tailored services to young people suffering from drug abuse. Through our holistic and individualised treatments, we aim to engage, strengthen and support the young people in winning over their addiction. We believe that the youth does not have to deal with this problem alone.

YSAS is a not-for-profit agency that offers free drug detox and other treatments. Physicians, nurses and our trained staff supervise our rehabilitation programs and treatments. To provide the most appropriate treatment, our staff will work with the patient in exploring the root of the problem. By understanding the cause of the drug abuse, we will develop a treatment plan that suits the person and the situation. Apart from helping young people deal with drug detox symptoms in a safe, caring, and non-judgmental environment, our programs include different recreational activities. As part of our holistic care program, our young patients can benefit from activities, such as swimming, art, massage, and other forms of relaxation.

Participating in a drug detox program is an important milestone for anyone suffering from drug abuse. YSAS understands that every individual copes with changes differently. Those who want to undergo drug detox but prefer staying with their families can attend our Home-based withdrawal program. In this program, patients can continue with most of their daily activities while we help them deal with their drug abuse problem.

Young people looking for a place to stay for a timeout from substance abuse can benefit from our residential withdrawal programs. They can stay with us for up to fourteen to learn different strategies to reduce risks and prevent relapse.
