Real Wairarapa

Across the Wairarapa region we provide counselling support to young people aged 12-24 years, and their families, who are affected by the use of alcohol and other drugs. Our service is free. 

We support young people to build their ability to cope with life challenges and make positive decisions by offering:

  • individual counselling sessions
  • group sessions through the 'Smashed n' Stoned programme
  • referral to a detox facility and residential treatment, if required
  • counselling support for whānau and friends who are affected by their loved one's substance use
  • comprehensive assessment
  • education workshops. 

We work closely with schools and mental health services to support young people to build confidence, resilience and self-esteem, plus strengthen relationships with their whānau and friends.
