Referral Process

Our adult residential programme is open to New Zealanders aged 18 years and over.
Within this programme, we also offer special support for young adults aged 18-23.

If you have a residential address in Auckland, your local district health board (DHB) will be able to fund your treatment. If you live outside Auckland, funding may be available with the following DHBs: Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Lakes, Mid Central and Taranaki. Alternatively, you may be eligible for funding as part of the National Methamphetamine Programme. 

To find out whether Odyssey may be an option for you, please complete our referral form and send it to  . Please contact us on 09 638 4957 if you have any questions about the form.

Once we have received your referral form, we will review your application. If suitable, we will contact you to book an assessment.  We will be in touch as soon as we can. 

Please note, due to high demand for our services at various times, our assessment process is sometimes delayed. If you have any queries regarding your potential assessment, please call us on 09 638 4957 or ask your referrer to get in touch.

If your application is accepted, your case manager will arrange an admission date for you and support you throughout the admission process.


Our adult residence offers a long-term (9-14 month) programme for people experiencing issues with drug or alcohol use. The programme is based on the Therapeutic Community model, or TC.

A TC is a supportive peer environment where members of the community gain skills to make the changes they need to live the lives they want.

In a TC, the community itself is a vital part of your journey. Learning occurs in the way you live and work together as residents and staff, and in the roles and responsibilities you have in the house.
