For some young people who want to make changes to their substance use, doing so in their community can be very difficult, for a number of different reasons. If motivated, spending some time with a Residential Youth AOD Service can be very helpful to get substance free and learn how to maintain these changes once you return home. For some it can also provide opportunity to move on to other places and opportunities once finished the programme. 

BOPDHB has funding with two Youth AOD Residential Providers: 

  • Rongo Atea- A Kaupapa Maora service in Hamilton that runs a 10 week programme.
  • Youth Odyssey- An Auckland provider with a well established history and reputation as a residential provider. There is no time limit for length of stay in this programme.

More information about these services can be provided by your SORTED worker and visits to these providers can be arranged for you to find out more information if you are interested.
