Referral Process

The first step on your journey to a life free from substance abuse and a life of freedom, peace and serenity is to call us directly on 0800 863 3869. We are available to take your call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

We understand this may be a big step for you; we will be gentle and guide you through everything you need to know.

Our admission process is as follow:

  • You make the call
  • Pre-admission assessment interview completed
  • Nursing assessment completed, to determine if eligibility criteria can be met
  • If eligibility criteria is met, a medical assessment by our addictions specialist Doctors is completed including blood test & medical history review
  • Admission acceptance - providing all criteria met

Intensive Residential Treatment is provided at both our Auckland and Nelson facilities.

Our programme is highly structured, the duration can vary from 30 days to 90 days, depending on the individuals needs. Our residential community is therapeutically based and our programme offers both individual and group therapy. The 12 Step programme forms a significant part of the treatment. We also focus on re-socialisation, guiding you in every step back out into the real world, living a life of total abstance from mood altering substances.

As each guest progresses through the programme, our clinical team will not only develop a Relapse Prevention Plan with you, but also offer a Continuing Aftercare Plan. All guests completing the 30 day Residential Program qualify for our 24 Month Continuing Care Program at no extra cost. The 24 Month Continuing Care Program operates on Mondays and Fridays.
