Our adult residential treatment programme is located in Avondale and is for people over 18 years old with alcohol, drug, or gambling problems. We have a unique stream within our programme for young adults aged from 18 to 22 years old.

Co-located with our Adult and Young Adult Services in Avondale is our purpose-built Family Centre, which offers residential treatment for adults with alcohol, drug, or gambling problems who have children under 12 years of age.

Set on 5.2 acres of grounds, our residential treatment programme for adults, young adults and families offers a home-like environment, with individual bedrooms, a communal lounge, and a dining room. Onsite facilities include a gym, a swimming pool, a tennis court, and a football ground.

Odyssey encourages family/whānau members to be actively involved at all stages of the treatment process. Opportunities to do this include monthly community dinners, weekend visits, and a forum for family members to provide feedback and suggestions. Additional visits can be arranged in consultation with Odyssey staff.

There is also a selection of group opportunities such as multi-family therapy and education groups, SMART Recovery mutual aid groups, treatment planning groups (where you identify the goals you would like to achieve), and client case reviews (where you and your family/whānau have an opportunity to discuss your progress).

Odyssey arranges approved childcare and schooling on weekdays for the children living at the Family Centre so their parents can participate in treatment programmes.

We are committed to reuniting families and have developed a close working relationship with government agencies. In some instances, a parent may enter the adult service, and as they progress, they can be reunited with their children within the Family Centre.
