Referral Process

For our addiction service we accept referrals from a number of sources including DHB, other providers, other agencies, whānau and self referrals. 


This service been specifically developed and is delivered by a provider who identifies as Māori.

This service uses a Māori framework and model of care that encompasses a holistic approach to health, and is cognisant of the requirements of Māori.

Common elements of Māori models include:

  • Taha tinana
  • Taha whānau
  • Taha hinengaro
  • Taha wairua
  • Tūrangawaewae
  • Te Reo Māori
  • Tikanga Māori

Underpinning these elements are the concepts of mana, tapu and mauri. The service is responsive to those people with more complex needs and co-existing problems and ensures relationships with other organisations and referral pathways are in place, to support good access.
