When We Need You
From 01/06/2012 onwards
DAPL (Drug and Alcohol Project Limited) is a counselling service offering one to one counselling and other forms of support to anyone affected by their own or other's substance use. As a volunteer you would work as part of the wider team. As a volunteer delivering therapeutic group work you would work alongside experienced trained counsellors. The groupwork is tailored to identified needs of the group. Groups usually consist of either young people or adults, and can take a variety of forms, for example outdoor activities or more traditional group work.
DAPL's under 18s team is continuing to support young people and their families by providing confidential 1:1 counselling, information, support and advice. DAPL have recently recruited a Family Support Worker who is setting up groups throughout Fife to support anyone who is affected by substance misuse. The Cupar group currently takes place in the YMCA on Thursday mornings.
