Referral Process

It can be complex to explain how referrals are made to Pact so please get in touch if you want to find out how to access our services. We’ll bend over backwards to help you. Even if you are not eligible for government-funded Pact support, we have other options, including paying for Pact services privately (see individually-funded services).


Our qualified, youth-friendly alcohol and drug counsellors work around the greater Wellington region providing 1:1 counselling or group sessions to youth aged between 10 and 19. We are based in many schools, as well as other community centres and services and also have clients see us on site.

Our AOD counsellors provide a free and confidential service which includes: assessments of alcohol or drugs and mental health, counselling, education, harm reduction and relapse prevention strategies. We are client centred and support our youth to achieve their goals.
