Home » Help and support
There is a wide range of help available for people with alcohol and other drug use problems. There is also help available for family members, whether or not the person with the problem is attending treatment.
Treatment programmes are tailored to the individual seeking assistance and usually consist of a variety of services, rather than a single type of treatment. People who seek help can receive assistance from different services, sometimes on many occasions, over time.
In New Zealand there are a range of treatment types and services, including culturally specific ones, in primary and secondary care settings. An overview of many of these is provided here. If you would like to check out whether you need treatment or discuss anything about any of the types of treatment outlined, including where to start, call the Alcohol Drug helpline on 0800 787 797 for free, confidential information, help and support.
Or text adh to 234 and we will text you back to see how we can help.
