CareNZ Manaaki Aotearoa
CareNZ supports anyone concerned about their own or someone else’s use of alcohol or other drugs.
We provide a range of services throughout the country, in both the community and prison settings. Last year we supported over 7,000 New Zealanders.
We currently operate Community Services in Counties Manukau, the Waikato Region, and Greater Wellington. Here you can access a variety of services, from assessment and individual counselling to group work and whanau support.
In addition, we are operating Drug Treatment Units (DTUs) in prisons in conjunction with the Department of Corrections. These programmes offer prisoners the opportunity to address their drug and alcohol issues while serving their sentence, and offer them a pathway to sustainable life changes after their release.
For offenders in the community or those who have been released from prison, we offer support through our Out of Gate Settlement Service and Single Point of Entry triage service.
For most clients our treatment programmes and community support services are free – as these are paid for the by health system.
