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).

Description

We support adults and youth with experience of mental illness, who are developing alcohol, drug, nicotine or gambling problems. We aim to reduce harm, give people accurate information and support younger people who are at risk of alcohol and other drug and co-existing related problems/dependence. Our staff screen, identify and assess people and provide intervention as required. We provide information and access to other support services in the community and liaise with other services to facilitate training and education for individuals, as well as whānau/family and/or carers.
