CareNZ Christchurch Community Services

-CareNZ offers free and confidential services for anyone who has concerns about their own or another’s use of alcohol and drugs. We offer a range of supports, from assessment, screening and brief interventions to group work, day programmes and support groups. In a first meeting, our practitioners will assess the individual needs of a person and make suggestions for possible interventions. If people find that CareNZ can help them, we will develop an individual treatment plan with them. Appointments can be made by contacting one of our locations directly, or by completing the self-referral form on our website: Referral is also possible through other agencies or healthcare providers, e.g. GPs. As part of our Christchurch Community Services, CareNZ also runs Out of Gate, a reintegration service assisting short serving prisoners with their transition back into the community. The service is available in the South Island (Christchurch, Dunedin, Inver
