If you are concerned about your own alcohol or drug use or someone else’s, then please contact us today.
This service provides residential and community services for people who are experiencing significant harm as a result of their own alcohol and or other drug use. A range of options are available dependent on your needs.
Our purposeful, whole of life, person-centred, caring approach combines four key elements;
- Partnership: You will be in a purposeful relationship with the treatment team as you move along your own personal path to recovery.
- Community Reinforcement Approach: We go beyond education and advice to coaching and practice. Where practical, family and friends are encouraged to participate in your treatment plan.
- 12 Step Recovery Journey: The 12 Step approach suggests that the recovery includes a distinctly spiritual journey from a life of confusion and grief to a place of serenity and peace.
- The Salvation Army: The Salvation Army in Aotearoa New Zealand seeks to offer an evidence-based, best practice treatment for people moderately to severely affected by their harmful use of, or dependency on alcohol and / or drugs as a practical expression of its Christian based love and concern for all people in the community.
Staff are a mix of health and allied health professionals experienced in the field of AOD as well as Peer Support Workers who have experienced addiction and are now living a life of recovery and modelling the hope of this possibility.
