Mental Health and Addiction Recovery Services

 What do the Mental Health and Addiction Co-Existing Problem Services do?

  • We work with people who are experiencing significant harm to their lives due to their substance use issues.
  • We mainly work within the MidCentral Health and Hawkes Bay Health Care regions, although if we can, we do accept people from outside those areas.
  • We work with individuals to assist them to achieve their best life possible.

As a Service we believe in:

  • education and empowerment;
  • enabling people to make good choices for themselves;
  • that a persons addiction cannot be viewed in isolation for effective and sustainable change to occur;
  • that no single theory or model of treatment is right for, or will fit with, every individual;
  • Valuing the person.

What do we offer?

  • Residential and Community Treatment Services in both Hawkes Bay and Palmerston North.
