If you have any issues or concerns about your own, or someone else’s, alcohol or drug taking, the Alcohol Drug Helpline offers free confidential information, help and support to peoples of all cultures in New Zealand.
The Alcohol Drug Helpline is on a path to improving the range and quality of our services to Pacific people. Working with Pacific agencies and our cultural advisors, we are seeking to provide a culturally affirming service, utilise resources specifically for Pacific people, and refer callers to services developed for and by Pacific people when requested.
Pacific treatment services are underpinned by Pacific values and incorporate Pacific approaches to health and well-being. Services provided are holistic, ie inclusive of spiritual, physical, emotional and mental dimensions. Essentially, treatment reﬂ ects Pacific ways of thinking and doing, which includes a strong focus on family and recognising the importance of relationships with self, God, family and community, use of Pacific languages, and integration of Pacific cultural practices. The Helpline has a full list of all Pacific and other services in New Zealand.
