Alcohol and Drug Service

The Alcohol and Drug Service provides outpatient support for adults 18 years and older who have concerns regarding their alcohol and other substance use.

We accept referrals from GPs and other health professionals, Mental Health Services, medical wards, employers and Community Corrections. We welcome self-referrals and family members can contact us for advice and support.

Our team of counsellors, case managers, nurses and doctors provide assessment, planning and treatment for recovery from problematic alcohol and other substance use.

We’re an outpatient service and we refer clients to inpatient services such as planned medical detox from alcohol or to residential rehab when such treatment is required.

If you’re concerned about your substance use please talk to your GP and/or feel free to contact us.

Our duty counsellor is available Monday – Friday 9am – 3.30pm on 06 753 7838 or free phone 0508 292.
