DHB clinical services
It’s best for people to be referred by their GP because substance use often affects physical health as well.
We also take referrals for people already in hospital or being treated as an outpatient.
Health professionals can refer people to our addictions service via Te Haika
Please take anyone you are concerned may be in significant withdrawal to your nearest emergency department because we do not do emergency managed withdrawals (detoxification).
For people in Wellington, Porirua, Kāpiti, the Hutt Valley and the Wairarapa who want to stop using drugs or alcohol, our managed withdrawal services can help you.
