Who we are

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, our 130 staff supported over 7,000 New Zealanders.

We currently operate Community Services in Counties Manukau, the Waikato Region, the Wairarapa, Greater Wellington and Christchurch. Here you can access a variety of services, from assessment and individual counselling to group work and whanau support.

In addition, we are operating eight Drug Treatment Units (DTUs) in prisons around the country, 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.
