At Taeaomanino we provide confidential, quality and primary drug counselling to clientele, especially to Pacific people and their families who are residing in Wellington, Porirua and Kapiti Coast. Our services are free of charge. We are interested in getting you the help you need and will do our very best to help you.

Our service aim is to:

  • Promote responsible use of alcohol
  • Reduce health risks, crime and social disruption associated with the inappropriate use of alcohol and or drugs
  • Enable families and communities to gain control over their health and improve it by limiting the harmful use of alcohol and drugs
  • Reduce excessive consumption of alcohol and drugs, and their associated injuries, violence and other harm it causes, particularly on roads, in workplaces, in and around drinking environments and at home
  • Assist with providing progress reports to the courts

Our overall objective is to confront the service user in a non-threatening but honest way and allow them to see their self-destructive behaviour and how it affects themselves, family and friends.  This is done with strict confidentiality, in a clear and respectful way, with empathy and support.
