Manaaki Ora provides information and treatment support for anyone affected by alcohol, substance use or problem gambling. 

The approach Manaaki Ora takes is to help people to understand the values by which they want to live their lives and then apply those values to find identity, direction, meaning and purpose.  In this way people are supported to move closer to their wellbeing goals through reduction or abstinence from alcohol, other substance use and gambling.
