Te Ara Hou - Methamphetamine Specialists

Te Ara Hou is a dedicated kaupapa Māori alcohol and other drug service located in Clendon, Auckland. The core aim of the service is to help clients who have alcohol and other drug addictions, to overcome their addiction and choose a better lifestyle for themselves and their whānau.

The programme offered at Te Ara Hou is a 26 week residential programme modelled on a Māori world-view (kaupapa Māori) Model of Practice named Te Toi o Matariki (the "awakening"). Te Toi Matariki works on the concepts that in order to realise your need to make change, one must understand who they are as an individuals, then as Māori, then their cultural value base. 

Te Ara Hou also provides peer support to whānau members who have been affected by the impact of alcohol and other drug use by their loved one, including one-to-one counselling and follow up support.

Call us on (09) 263 8040 or view the Te Ara Hou -  Alcohol & Other Drug Residential Services section of our website.
