Evaluation of Follow-on Youth Recovery Support Team (FYRST) Services

The Follow-on Youth Recovery Support Team (FYRST) in Fairfield and Parramatta provides post-detoxification case management services for young people aged 16-25 with drug-use problems. The SPRC conducted an evaluation from December 2002 to September 2006. The evaluation focused on determining how the FYRST project meets its aims of contacting young people completing detoxification or rehabilitation, of providing practical assistance to alleviate immediate crises; of providing ongoing care support using a holistic client-focused model; and of assisting people with their ongoing recovery.
