Timatanga Hou - New Beginnings. Our 3 bed detoxification unit has been set up to be as inviting as possible. Your withdrawals will be managed depending on your personal and medical history, the substance you use and how you use them.

The unit has a day program of activities for you to participate in. There is a daily morning meeting and education sessions on addiction and tools for your recovery which you are required to attend.

The staff will monitor your progress throughout your stay with us. You and your family/whānau can request as many meetings with the staff as you need.

Please Note:  The Unit will be closed from 18 December 2020 until 12 January 2021.
