Nuppo – substance abuse services for young people

Nuppo helps young people aged 13 to 25 years in Tampere and Orivesi:

  • 13 to 17 year-olds with concerns about alcohol, drugs and functional addictions (e.g. games)
  • 18 to 25 year-olds with concerns about medicines and drugs 

A young person in need of help, their loved one, an official authority or an adult can contact Nuppo directly. No referral is needed. If necessary, the first 1 to 2 visits to Nuppo can be made anonymously.

The young person is supported comprehensively according to their personal needs. Support and care are planned together with the young person, their family and friends and other organisations involved in the matter. At Nuppo, appointments consist of individual visits and group activities. The aim is to strengthen young people’s life management skills and coping in everyday life and to help them discover their own potential.

There are three nurses, one social worker and one counsellor at Nuppo. In addition, experts by experience may be invited to attend an appointment.
